Other Programs and Activities
9 to 10 a.m. – Children’s Religious Education – Lower Level-Centering Room
We now offer 9 a.m. children’s R.E. in addition to our traditional 11 a.m. R.E. classes. The 9 a.m. curriculum, called “Spirit Play,” is based on a Montessori approach to learning that encourages self-directed exploration. This semester we have one mixed-aged class, most appropriate for children ages 3-9. The children attend the first portion of the 9 a.m. worship service before going to their class. Read more.

Mindfulness Meditation takes place from 10:05 to 10:35 a.m. every Sunday in the Centering Room – or, if the weather is suitable, outside around the Fire Circle behind the church. On fourth Sundays throughout the year, Mindfulness Meditation takes place at the Fire Circle whatever the weather (unless it is raining). Meditators of all levels of experience are welcome. This is mainly silent meditation with some instruction, if needed, and with brief selected readings from eminent teachers. Email Peter Holmes for more information.
