CUCC Sunday School Program
As progressive Christians, our children’s program focuses on the teachings of Jesus, the Bible, and other wisdom stories. We teach interdependence, justice issues, self-awareness, respect for nature, stillness, forgiveness, prayer, meditation, and integrity.
On a typical Sunday, our Sunday School meets during worship from 10:50 to 11:30 (worship starts at 10:30 am). Children spend the first 20 minutes of worship with their families and following Pastor Adam’s children’s message, are invited to go to church school. Activity bags are available for children in the entry way for those staying in with their adults. The first Sunday of each month is our intergenerational Sunday where kids stay in throughout the service and help with various aspects of the service, including communion. The nursery is available every Sunday for ages 1-4.
