Designed for pre–school children ages 3–5, Spirit Play engages little ones with enriching stories and self–directed playtime with the assistance of specially trained adult guides. This class begins at 10:00 am. Spirit Play kids do not start in the sanctuary.
Elementary School Religious Education (Kindergarten–5th graders)
This fall our classes will center FUN and the importance of getting re-acquainted (or acquainted for the first time) after so much time away. Hands–on activities and community building will be our focus. Until further notice, children in this age group will begin in their outdoor classrooms at 10 am.
Middle School Religious Education (6th and 7th graders)
Our sixth and seventh graders will meet together to engage in the curriculum “Heeding the Call: Qualities of a Justice Maker” which focuses on social justice and our faith.
Our Whole Lives (OWL) – 8th and 9th graders
This curriculum teaches participants to make informed and responsible decisions about their sexual health and behavior. It equips participants with accurate, age-appropriate information in: sexuality, sex, sensuality, anatomy, friendships, dating, communication, health care and more.
Grounded in a holistic view of sexuality, Our Whole Lives not only provides facts about anatomy and human development, but also helps participants clarify their values, build interpersonal skills, and understand the spiritual, emotional, and social aspects of sexuality. Note: Permission from parents is required for this class, and parents or guardians must attend a parent/guardian orientation.
High School Youth Group
Our high school youth group Sunday time is youth-directed and adult assisted. Youth choose topics to learn about and discuss from current issues to world religions. They also use this time to bond as a group, do social justice projects, and projects that serve the congregation.
COMING THIS FALL! SPIRIT SUNDAY!
As soon as it is safe for children of all ages to be in the sanctuary, on the first Sunday of each month the 10:00 am service will be Spirit Sunday, a service designed specifically to engage all ages together! No RE classes will meet with the exception of OWL.
