 We encourage you to attend Sunday worship services and experience the sacred connection that comes from communal worship at the Community Church Unitarian Universalist.

Children & Youth

 

CCUU uses the Unitarian Universalist Association’s Tapestry of Faith Lifespan Curriculum K-8.  Our Religious Education Director has put together a “Family Handbook for Children and Youth” to inform parents on the curriculum being offered at the church for their children, along with other guidelines and helpful information.  The early lifespan curriculum’s goals are to:

·      Engage the children in meaningful exploration through simple interactions with their surroundings; and,
·      Develop a  sense of their UU identity and a personal commitment to living our seven Unitarian Universalist Principles
 
Romper Room

Located in the back of the sanctuary, this separate room with a glass wall and a view of the sanctuary is sound proof.  However, it has speakers to allow a respite area for parents to listen to the service while comforting their children.

 
Bridging Ceremonies

These are congregational worship services devoted to recognizing, honoring, and celebrating the youth who have been in our religious education program for many years and are now moving on.

 

Youth who are at least sixteen years of age may become members by signing the membership book. Youth between the ages of thirteen and sixteen may sign after completion of a pre-membership religious education program provided by the church.
