Covid-19 Info & Updates

Services are multiplatform (with both in-person and virtual participation available). Masks are required inside when in shared spaces. Masks are not required for small/medium groups who have come to a covenantal agreement. Click to learn more about our Gathering Plan and the overall UUS COVID response. Read more »

Children and youth have big questions and concerns. As a community, we help young people find the courage and confidence to develop their own answers with many sources and mentors as guides.

Sundays

Our Sunday services are multigenerational, with topics and themes geared for all ages. In addition, our Religious Education (RE) Team has created multi-platform programming to provide learning resources, activities, and opportunities to families attending virtually or in person. Learn more about Sunday programming for families, children and youth.

Special Programming & Volunteering

We will be adding special, short-term, and stand alone programming as time and enthusiasm allow. These programs will be geared for specific age groups, and most will be for a specific set number of sessions. As more details become available, they will be sent out to families.

In addition to volunteering to lead our virtual meetups or youth programing, these stand alone programs are a great way for congregants and families to connect with our children and youth over shared interests in a time frame that works with their schedule. So if you have a hobby (painting, making bread, etc), justice practice, or spiritual practice that would work well with our RE program or help children and youth cope with COVID times, contact the RE staff.

Family & caregiver events

As part of our family ministry programming, we will be offering once a month parent/caregiver small group meetups via Zoom. These groups of 5-8 people will be a way for families to share what is working well, discuss what challenges they are having, and support each other with education and parenting issues. The hope is to group families based on children’s ages, schooling format, and schedules as best as we can.

Parents and caregivers who are UUS members should complete our interest survey to help us form groups. Any non-UUS family that would like to join can contact our RE staff directly.

Our Whole Lives (OWL)

Our Whole Lives (OWL) is a sexual education program developed by the Unitarian Universalist Association, and we offer sessions for youth in both junior and senior high. With a holistic approach, OWL provides accurate, developmentally appropriate information about a range of topics, including relationships, gender identity, sexual orientation, sexual health, and cultural influences on sexuality.
