Sunday Youth and Children Programs

 

kids and go green

 

 

Our mission is to guide children and youth in a supportive and affirming educational environment in keeping with Unitarian Universalist principles, exposing them to many beliefs and cultures, and encouraging them to discern what is ethical and just in life.


“We are Unitarian Universalists, and we believe in Open Minds, Helpful Hands, & Loving Hearts…”

Children and youth begin the morning with thDSC_8085e adult congregation at 10:45 am and enjoy a children’s story read by our Youth Programs’ Coordinator, Leyah Jensen, or another member of the congregation and then move to the activities room for Youth Programs at 11:00 am with trained and committed volunteers as leaders. We offer creative, hands on, artistic, engaging activities that explore our principles (https://www.unitarianchurchnantucket.org/home-3/our-principles), world religion, ethics, generosity, social justice and some of our historic and everyday heroes. Service ends at 11:45 am and parents and children often stay to enjoy social hour and snacks together.

Leyah Jensen, our new Youth Programs’ Coordinator, is thrilled to be with us and leading our Sunday morning program. Her artistic, design, and children’s program development and teaching experience combine to make her an excelleyah storytimelent choice for the UU Meeting House. Come by and meet her one Sunday with your children. You will be dazzled!

Each week the class recites, “We are a part of the Unitarian Universalist Meeting House.  We believe in an open mind, helping hands, and a loving heart.”  We work on ways to help this happen.

Leyah Jensen and Rev. Linda are currently developing a junior youth group for youth ages 9-12 which will include art, theater, and social justice as well as time for reflection on values and teen issues. Check us out on the tab Youth Programs/ACK-spress!!
