Infants, Toddlers, Preschool, Kindergarten, Grades 1- 8
During the Sunday Service, children gather in groups according to age, from infants and toddlers, through preschoolers, to children in grades K-6, and on to grades 7-8.¬† Infants are cared for by their parents in the infant room or accompany their parents to the service. Child care is provided in the toddler room.
RE classes from pre-school to 8th grade explore a rich array of topics that include Unitarian Universalism, World Religions, and Judeo-Christian heritage with stories, songs, conversations and activities. Using age-appropriate curricula that are hands-on and ‚Äúminds-on,‚ÄĚ the classes provide an opportunity as befits each age grouping to learn about ourselves, our world, and our values. There is also a summer RE program.

Our Whole Lives (OWL)
Our Whole Lives (OWL) is a lifespan sexuality education program that models and teaches caring, compassion, respect and justice. The overall goal of Our Whole Lives is to provide a positive and comprehensive lifespan educational program that helps participants gain the knowledge, values, and skills to lead sexually healthy, responsible lives. At UUFCC we alternate every other year teaching the 7th-9th grade and 10th-12th grade curricula. The grade 7-9 curriculum consists of 27 90-minute sessions and the grade 10-12 curriculum consists of 13 90-minute sessions. Typically, the classes are held from 9:45-11:15 Sunday morning at UUFCC. The issues included in the OWL program are organized into four broad topic areas: Self-worth, sexual health, responsibility, and justice and inclusivity.
