When a child is baptized at ULC, the congregation is asked to care for the child, teach the child the Word of God, and guide the child in being a faithful witness of the love of God. Given this commitment, children at ULC are encouraged to participate in worship where they can listen to a children’s message and share in Holy Communion. In addition to the regular classes on Sunday morning, the children participate in a Christmas pageant. They also participate in the “Walk with the Magi” every Epiphany Day (January 6). The children join in the Palm Sunday processional with our ecumenical partners in the community, and get to pet a real donkey. At least twice a year, they spend time tending the church garden as a part of our commitment of being a Greening Congregation. On Children’s Sabbath, the children take an active role in leading the worship service for the congregation.
