Our UUCC banner was carried by five of our young people in the banner parade at the Opening Celebration of the UUA General Assembly (G.A.) in New Orleans on June 21, 2017. In this short clip they are seen entering the Great Hall of the New Orleans Convention Center and later proceeding out of the hall. Read more about G.A.

10 a.m. – Children’s Religious Education – Lower Level

Summer religious education classes began June 11. Two classes are being offered:

• Pre-K through 3rd Grade: “Spirit Play” curriculum (Montessori-inspired classroom).
• 3rd through 8th Grade: Workshops led by different church members on different fun topics
from yoga to theater games to creating a video podcast.

There is an overlap in age grouping between the two summer classes, and parents can decide which program is most suitable for their children’s interests and maturity.
