Attend Virtual SpiritJam:

Virtual SpiritJam will begins each week at 10:00am. We start by watching the Story for All Ages (the same one parents watch in service!) then transition into our Opening Circle around 10:10am. Kids can use their own phone, tablet, or laptop to join SpiritJam. The link will stay the same every week! If you want to join, but can’t find the the link, contact Ezra before the service.

Participants will be visible to each other. For privacy, SpiritJam will not be recorded. 

Below each week, you will find a summary of the activites planned for the coming Sunday and a list of any supplies needed. If you click the Resources buttons you will be taken to links, videos, and activties shared by your Children’s Program staff. If you have any content you would like to suggest we share, please send it to Ezra

Protesting: what can YOU do?

Social Justice is an integral part of our UU beliefs. With protests happening globally, what can young people do to stand up for what is just and right? Join us in SpiritJam this Sunday as we discuss the many ways people band together to change the world for the better! 

Supplies: 

  • Green Construction Paper
  • Scissors
  • Large Cardboard or Posterboard
  • Markers

Teacher Natasha shares some ways you can add your voice to the protests from home. More suggestions for parents can be found here.

You can also learn a lot from home! Check out the Smithsonion’s National Museum of African American History and Culture’s Digital Resources Guide. They have  educational resources for all ages, and a collection of online exhibits where you can learn about the Civil Rights movement, James Baldwin’s house in France, and so much more.

In the video below, see how kids in Seattle held their own impromtu parade.
