Welcome to "Ouur" Space!

A special part of our Sunday service is the "Time for All Ages". The children are invited to sit up front with a storyteller. After the story, the congregation sings the children downstairs to their Religious Education classrooms. We follow the "Little Red School House" approach where all age groups are taught in the same room. The older children enjoy helping out their younger friends. The teacher modifies the curriculum as needed to meet the needs of the children in attendance. We look forward to honoring your child's questions and having them be a part of the Religious Exploration we offer to our children. If you have any questions about our program, please feel free to contact Erik Halseth, RE Coordinator.

RE Curriculum

"Spirit Play"

Our new curriculum called “Spirit Play.” It is a UU adaptation of Jerome Berryman's Godly Play and co-developed by Reverend Dr. Nita Penfold, Reverend Ralph Roberts and Beverly Leute Bruce. It uses the Montessori approach and Berryman's worship approach for the structure of RE. As in Montessori, the key elements are the prepared classroom environment and the teachers. These elements free the children to work at their own pace on their own issues after an initial story within a safe and sacred structure shepherded by two adults.
