Would you enjoy spending time with kids under three years old? You can help with intercultural growth every Thursday from 9:00 AM - 11:30 AM. Mothers stay with their young children while they play, create, sing dance, and become comfortable. Speaking and understanding Spanish is not required, but it would be a plus. 

Time involvement: 2.5 hours on Thursday mornings

UU Beliefs Adapted for Young Learners

We encourage the children to explore what it means to be a Unitarian Universalist with a focus on the UU principles ( If you'd like to know what's happening each Sunday and other events, please join our Facebook group for regular updates (

Sunday Morning Children's Program

Everyone will start in the Octagon (sanctuary) together. After the Time for All Ages, the children leave with the Guides for children's religious enrichment programming.

Activities include art, music, reading, gardening, and physical play. Since we have experienced a long time apart, we're focused on building relationships rather than traditional education. The format is one-room schoolhouse style through 8th grade, and children should dress to be comfortable and active.










TORCH stands for Teen Organization Reaching for Community Harmony. In partnership with their youth advisors, our youth explore theology, spirituality, history and other topics of interest through discussion, music and art as well as a number of hands-on social service opportunities. TORCH meets every other Sunday during service for kids in 7th grade and up. On Sundays when we do not have TORCH, the youth are welcome to stay in service or join in the children's programming. 


We do not have nursery staff, but babies and toddlers are welcome in the sanctuary during service. If you or your little one need a break from service, please know that we stream the service in the nursery.
