Children

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.

 

We have a number of family activities planned over the summer for you and your children to enjoy together!  Check out the events below and feel free to concact us for more info or to sign up!

Family Pie Project

All children and families are invited to join us downstairs in the Fellowship Hall on Sunday, November 23 during the Education Hour (11:00 a.m. – Noon) for the Pie Project!  We will be making a lot of pies, which will be donated, to the women of Elizabeth Gregory Home.  We want to help supply some great, traditional Thanksgiving food for EGH.  We might get a bit messy, but that’s all part of the experience!  We welcome participation from children of all ages; there is always something you can do to help out!  No need to bring supplies or money, just head downstairs and join the fun!
