This Week in Children’s Sunday Programming
This year, more than ever, USG is here to support your family in your spiritual development.
UU Explorers for Elementary Children, 1:00pm
This Sunday at 1pm we continue our adventure with World of Wonder and Moral Tales, co-led by USG and UU Congregation of Susquehanna Valley. Age range of participants is currently up to 4th grade, and is appropriate to take as a family with younger siblings!*
Curious about our CSD Treasure Boxes? — Email Ryan Hurd if you’d like to arrange a pick up (or delivery) of a CSD Treasure Box, which is a monthly themed home spirituality kit for families of all kinds.*
Take a pic of your Story Stone. Thanks to those who came to paint story stones with us last Saturday! Email Ryan Hurd a pic of your stone placed in the neighborhood!*
Ryan encourages parents and caregivers to attend 10AM Sunday morning worship with their families via Zoom. This is a powerful time for us to worship together and center our multi-generational community. We will have a Times for All Ages included in the Worship Service as much as possible.
More Parent Resources and Connecting Online
CSD Parenting Resources: Check out the latest Story Time and other new videos and recommended articles for families to explore when convenient.
Parents and Caregivers are also welcome to join our CSD Facebook group.
If you are already subscribed to the CSD e-newsletter, you will be sent the Zoom link for the Sunday children’s program. If you are not yet receiving that but are interested in joining, send an email to Ryan Hurd in advance so the Children’s ZOOM link can be sent to you.
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.
