PreSchool – Ages 3-4
A Tapestry of Faith Program for Children in Preschool
Chalice Children delves deep into our Unitarian Universalist faith. It strives not just to teach about our faith, but also to provide experiences around the strength of community, the wonder and awe that transcend everyday understanding, and life issues we all share. Early childhood is filled with curiosity and wonder. In a group setting, with loving adult guides, young children can engage in spiritual seeking, develop their openness to sharing, and experience the benefit of a supportive community. Their time in Chalice Children can set a pattern for the rest of their lives and bring lasting benefits.
Children will also experience the rituals of religious community; a Chalice Lighting, Sharing our Joys and Sorrows, Circle Time, Activity Time, Clean-up and our Closing Ritual.
* Age by September is the preferred placement for children. Please speak to the Director of Religious Education for any exceptions.

The Religious Education (RE) Ministry is a cooperative program of the entire congregation. There are many ways to be involved at all levels of the program and all levels of time and commitment!
Many of our adult members, and all parents, take volunteer roles in our program for children and youth at some time. We find the practice of teaching, in and of itself, to be a valued experience of spiritual, intellectual and social growth in our community. Teaching Religious Education is a path to learning and to deepening not only one’s own religious understanding, but to establishing relationships in our congregational community across ages, generations and social groups.
