Expanding Love, Building Identity, Exploring Beliefs

A Hogwarts Summer begins on Sunday, June 3rd.  Core Hogwarts subjects such as Potions, Herbology and Defense Against the Dark Arts serve as a place to explore Unitarian Universalism. We will begin with an introduction to the Harry Potter series and get sorted!  Each session can stand on its own, no prior attendance (or knowledge of the books) is required.  Please register your child on the weeks you attend.

Sessions will include a focus on the following themes:

  • Celebrating the magic we find in the world
  • Moving beyond tolerance
  • Acceptance and love
  • Racism and discrimination

The summer program ends on Sunday, August 12th. Sign-in will be required for all who attend.

Dream with us

Something like this?
We already own 3 of these.  Where might they go?

Come dream a dream with us! This summer, you are invited to a conversation about our outdoor playscape. Bring your creativity and imaginations ot the Great Room on Sunday, June 24th at 11:30AM during Cookies and Conversation.  We need a fresh start with the outdoor areas underneath the new  shade structure. A space for play, to meet and talk, a space for outdoor worship?  What would you like to see outside for the whole community? How should we co-create an outdoor communal space with room for children to play and adults to enjoy?

Special thank you

A very special thank you to those who taught this year in the religious education program: Laurel Irwin, Judy Holmes, Rebecca Richins, Joel Brown and Sally Atchison. Our child care providers, who fill in whenever and wherever it’s needed: Eric Brekke and Paige Ramsey. And to Cliff Pelton and his late brother, Bumpy, we gratefully appreciate their generosity in helping us finally build a permanent outdoor shade structure.

Hope to see you all soon!
