Goals

The Seekers write some of their goals for the future.

 

What are we?

The UU Pantomine Players explore a description of Unitarian Universalists

Riddle and Mystery

This year's curriculum introduces and processes Big Questions. The first three echo Paul Gauguin’s famous triptych: Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going? The next ten, including Does God exist? and What happens when you die?, could be found on almost anyone’s list of basic life inquiries. The final three are increasingly Unitarian Universalist: Can we ever solve life’s mystery? How can I know what to believe? What does Unitarian Universalism mean to me?

Kids talking about the week's lesson and having fun

Past year's classes

The class talked about the Lord's Prayer and translated their own version in class:

God in heaven, your name is holy.

Help us make earth more like heaven.

Give us food to eat.

Forgive the things we've done wrong and help us forgive the people who have done wrong to us.

Help us not be tempted to do something bad.

Protect us from bad things.

So be it.
