  • ALL other sundays

    Godly Play Worship (Preschool – 1st Grade)

    Offered during the 11 am service. This is Christian Education, rooted in ancient storytelling while adopting active Montessori pedagogy.


    Kids’ Community Worship (Preschool – 5th Grade)

    Offered during the 8:30 am and 11:00 am services. Kids explore worship themes, and develop skills to help them participate and understand worship in a child-friendly setting. Ubuntu’s (or older shepherds) develop leadership & service skills by partnering & modelling for our youngest children. 

  • Faith formation hour (9:45 am - 10:45 am)*

    Sunday School (Preschool – 5th Grade): 

    We all learn together as a community

    “Seasons of the Spirit,” a global, inclusive & ecumenical curriculum, is used to explore the teachings of the Bible in new and exciting ways that relate to modern life, including how God is revealed in science, the arts, and technology. Children are developmentally divided by age into classes.

  • third grade bible workshop

    A fun, 8-week session offered during the Faith Formation Hour each year to 3rd Grade students to increase understanding and appreciation of the Bible. The course concludes with a Sunday Bible presentation including a name ritual during a service.

  • our whole lives: sexuality and our faith

    The UCC affirms that sexuality and spirituality are inextricably connected and that both are gifts from God. This comprehensive & developmentally appropriate program is offered during the Faith Formation Hour every other year. Courses are facilitated by trained specialists. Offered for 1st, 5th/6th, 8th/9th, 11th/12th Grades and Young Adults.

  • Nursery care (8:15 am - 12:30 pm)**

    Care for children from birth to age 3 is provided each Sunday morning by a team of trained nursery attendants. Check the weekly bulletin for the availability of nursery/childcare for certain church events.

  • kids' multi-faith experience (July 31-Aug 4)

    Children (Kindergarten – 5th Grade) gather together to gain an introduction to four global faiths:

    • Judaism
    • Islam
    • Buddhism
    • Christianity

    By opening to this opportunity, children grow to understand and deepen into their own faith practices while gaining greater understanding and tolerance of the faiths of others.

    The 2017 Multi-Faith Experience is full. We look forward to hosting the many kids who are participating!
