What We Offer Through the Lifespan
We provide children, youth, and adults an opportunity to explore, reflect, and learn in a nurturing spiritual community. We strive to provide programs that offer all ages, inspiring:
- Ethical growth – internalizing enduring values like justice, equity, and compassion, and gaining tools to act on them in everyday life.
- Social growth – connecting with peers and people of all ages on a deeper level. Finding acceptance among people who see beyond the superficial.
- Spiritual growth – feeling a connection with the sacred within, among, and beyond us.
On a Sunday morning you might find the preschoolers singing songs about feelings, the Lower Elementary class engaging with a story about intangible gifts such as forgiveness, the Upper Elementary class writing a letter to senators about an important social justice issue, the Middle School class pondering life’s “big questions”, and the high-school youth cleaning the local road. Many programs incorporate social justice activities, worship opportunities, service trips, fellowship, and fun.
Our Director of Religious Exploration and Minister plan and lead many of our congregations’ lifespan programs, however, members of the congregation often lead them, too. Teaching can be a very fulfilling way to deepen one’s own faith.
We invite you to explore these pages and contact our Director of Religious Exploration to get connected.
