Our YRUU youth carried our church banner in the banner parade at the opening
session of the UUA General Assembly in Kansas City, Mo. on June 20. In the first part
of this short video, they are seen on their first pass through the convention hall.
After the transition, they are seen on their way out of the hall.

10:30 a.m. – Children’s Religious Education – “Shelter” – Lower Level
Our summer R.E. classes focus on the UU Seventh Principle – our interconnection with nature. We are offering two classes during our worship service time:
• The older children (3rd-8th grade) will be learning about deepening their connection to the earth, exploring spiritual practices, close observation, and ways we can care for the earth. In particular, we will focus on our relationship with the beautiful land upon which our church sits.
• Younger children will be in our Montessori Spirit Play classroom, this summer with a focus on stories of earth-based religions and lessons on our 7th principle.
Both classes will be outside as much as is possible.
