For Sunday May 15, 2022
Generally updated on Thursdays

CSD meets in person this Sunday, May 15 during worship service from 10:45 – 11:30am. Children ages K – 5th grade – although older youth are welcome too to help! We will be rehearsing for next week’s CSD Sunday service, so interested children can choose how to participate! We do not have nursery support for 4-year-olds and under this Sunday during worship service, but parents are welcome to come with their littles and join our UU Explorer activities. 

Our Whole Lives is meeting this Sunday, May 15 from 10:30am – 12:30pm in Sullivan Chapel. Our penultimate session!

Our Dungeons & Dragons group is meeting this Sunday May 15 from 1:00 – 3:00pm in Daskam Room. Bring your character sheets. Where will DM Ryan Rose take us next? What is the answer to the Fae’s riddle? Please RSVP if your youth is planning to attend.


If your children will attend our children’s program during worship, please register for CSD if you haven’t already.  It’s important for us to have emergency contact info as well as allergies on file, as well as your interests logged about potential programming.

We are now building our 21st century CSD team!
The ways we engage are radically shifting, but the message is the same: We are here to grow together, strengthened by our intergenerational relationships and our compassionate approach to self-inquiry, spiritual growth and social justice.

Our Children’s Spiritual Development program for 2019-20 has as its theme Wonder, Service, Mindfulness and Fun. We will return to offering exciting programs from PreK to 12th grade, as well as monthly special events including Children’s Chapel and Justice Sundays once the stay at home order has lifted.

Logistics for program Sundays once the church reopens:

Drop Off: Children can accompany parents into the sanctuary for worship at 10:30am, and then they will be sung out to the Dining Hall after approximately 15 minutes. Parents are welcome to accompany children to the Dining Hall, where our CSD Leaders will gather them into their groups: PreK – Kindergarten, First-Third Grade, and 4-5th grade, Middle School Youth Group (7-8th grade), and Coming of Age (8th- 10th grade). 

Parents and guardians are also welcome to accompany the children and Leaders back to the CSD rooms, especially if you have never seen them before! 

Parents are welcome to sit in a CSD session or visit at any time. Your children’s safety and happiness is important to us, and we want you to know exactly where your children are at all times.

Dismissal: We are asking parents of PreK-Kindergarten and 1st – 3rd Grades to come back to the CSD rooms (in Sullivan 1 and Sullivan 2) around 11:45AM to pick up children. 

Children in 4-5th grades will be able to head back to the Dining Hall on their own after their workshop is over. 

Visit the Child Spiritual Development page for details about our Fall program.
