This Sunday, July 7, children will be in the sanctuary with their families and friends for the Worship Service. 

On Sunday, July 14, we resume our CSD Suummertime programs:
At USG, summer is relaxed time for playing and getting to know our UU principles. Every Suummertime Sunday is an adventure! Younger children (6 and under) will explore UU-infused arts and crafts, and older children (7-11) will be cooking up something delicious from around the world each week (and eating it too!). Drop in any Sunday and get to know our beloved community. 

On Sundays when we offer CSD programs, children begin their mornings in the Sanctuary and then are sung out to their Suummertime programs around 10:45am.

Childcare is offered to children 4-5 years old and younger in the Committee Room this and almost every Sunday from 9:00am until 12:00pm.

Details about the CSD programs and schedules can be found on the on the Child Spiritual Development page.

Logistics for program Sundays (Starting June 30th):

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 4-6th 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! Due to the Elevator Project, to access Sullivan Chapel we must exit the Dining Hall, walk around the courtyard, and re-enter Sullivan.

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) after service has ended to pick up children. However, note that after 15 minutes after the service has ended (or noon at the latest), all children will be escorted back to the Dining Hall by teachers.

Children in 4-6th grade (in Sullivan 3) will be escorted back to the Dining Hall by CSD Leaders; this is a safety protocol change from last year due to the loss of the inner stairwell during the construction project. This is the safest way to navigate the courtyards and re-entry into the church.

Visit the Child Spiritual Development page for details about our Fall program which started September 16.

If your child or youth participates in CSD programs and is not registered,  please register them here or contact Ryan Hurd (

There is so much to LOVE about USG and we are glad you are here!

The Children’s Programming page will generally be updated by Thursday each week.
