Children’s Faith Development

Sundays at 10:30

Theme-based Ministry

UUCMC is part of a wider theme-based ministry network called Soul Matters. Each month (September-June) we look at a new monthly theme as a way of focusing the life of a congregation through worship, faith development, covenant circles, and other activities. This approach helps create multigenerational connections as people of all ages explore common themes in age-appropriate ways. Theme-based ministry extends faith development beyond Sunday morning.

First Steps: 6 months-5 years

Our staffed childcare room awaits your little one’s exploration! They will find developmentally appropriate toys, books, and games related to our monthly themes. Parents, feel free to stay while your child adjusts.

Superhero Academy: K-4th Grade

Using the premise of popular superheroes, like Black Panther and Teen Titans, this program builds foundations for anti-oppression, personal responsibility, and love. Behind the colorful spandex and superhuman abilities, there are real lessons to learn from superheroes. Superhero Academy is a play-based program where children develop a sense of creativity and agency, knowing they have the strength and resources to work for justice in our world.

Popcorn Theology: 5th-7th Grade

Popcorn Theology uses popular G and PG films to explore life lessons and choices through movies! Sessions include an excerpt of a film followed by activities and discussions to enhance the learning experience.

Visit the Youth page for information about our 8th-12th grade programs.

Families are encouraged to:

•    have their children participate regularly and on time,
•    to engage their children in conversation about weekly lessons,
•    consider ways they might help out,
•    put down roots in their religious community and
•    take an interest in the Family Ministry Soulful Home program.
