Multi-Platform Update for Faith Formation for Children and Youth

As our local COVID numbers decline, our congregational staff and leaders have decided to return to in-person meeting. We are excited!!

In order to make Faith Formation accessible for all, we will be restarting programs as we are able. To volunteer with youth and children, please email Sara Sautter. All programs will be multi-platform. 

Here are the plans for Sunday, February 20

Kid Zone – We will be bringing back the activity area near the front of the Sanctuary for families. There will be a small play space for toddlers and a Fidget Library for older children to check out items to take back to their seats. As usual, all children are welcome in our worship service. 

Nursery  (Birth to 2) Our nursery will be closed this Sunday, February 20. Parents are encouraged to bring their babies into worship as they feel comfortable. 

Preschool Classes (2-5/K) This class will remain home based for this week. If you are ready to trade Book Boxes, please let Imani Nero know. 

Elementary Classes (K-5) UUCE has asked that all participants in our programs be vaccinated. In view of this, we will be offering several ways to participate.

  • 8:30am – Our Zoom class will meet as usual this week to allow children and their teachers a time to conclude well their online time together. 
  • 10:30am – Our usual rituals will be observed – chalice lighting, bananas and boo-nanans, and continued lessons in anti-racism. These lessons will take place both in person in the Chapel and on Zoom. 

Secondary Class (6-12) – This class will remain online this week. Vaccinated youth who wish to attend in-person are encouraged to join their families in worship. At 11:30am, youth may continue their exploration of world religions through Minecraft with Christina. The problems that Bedrock users were having on the Minecraft server have been solved. If you still encounter issues, please contact Christina.


Coming of Age (enrolled secondary youth) – This group will meet online this coming Wednesday, February 23, at 5pm. Students have received the Zoom link. If your youth has not received the link, please contact Sara.


No worries!
