We are returning to in-person religious education programs in the 2022 – 23 year! Please review church COVID protocols for more information.


PreK/K: Spirit Play

Stories that describe who we are, what we believe, and what are some of the different answers people have to the biggest questions about life are the focus of Spirit Play. Based on Montessori principles, Spirit Play gives preschool and kindergarten children a special circle of community in which their imaginations and curiosity are encouraged through play. Spirit Play is a storytelling circle that encourages children to answer the question: “I wonder…” with their own thoughts and imaginings. Montessori-style activities afterward allow them some time with their own thoughts and play, whether to explore the stories further or simply practice other life skills such as tying knots, distinguishing the colors of the rainbow, and counting.

For the 2022 year, our themes will be on environmental justice, the church community, and the different ways people feel and experience the sacred mystery that some call God.

1-3 Grades & 4 – 6 Grades  Workshop Rotation: “Stories from Our Six Sources.”

These classes will explore wisdom tales and notable Unitarian Universalists from history to the present day. Each month will focus on one story they will hear first and then explore for the next 3-4 Sundays through other activities such as skits, visual arts, crafting, cooking, music, etcetera. Members of the church come and share some of their favorite hobbies for a day, helping children engage with the stories through multiple disciplines and learning styles.
