We are a church of open minds, loving hearts, and helping hands.
Channing Memorial Church values religious education for Unitarian Universalists of all ages. Currently, our Religious Education offerings are in transition. Below, you can see what we have offered traditionally and hope to return to in the future! If you have children and are interested in engaging with the church, please send Rev. Jane an email at email@example.com. The more we know about interested families and children, the more we can offer!
The first part of most Sunday morning worship services is multigenerational. We believe that children and youth have something special to offer, as does everyone, and they are often invited to light the chalice, share a song, or help with the Stories for all Ages. The Story for all Ages is a story for children that teaches a lesson for all ages. Classes begin when the children are sung out after the Story for all Ages and end at 12:15. Many of the lessons end with 5-10 minutes of concentrated reflection, a closing ceremony, or group discussion.
Our nursery and preschool room opens at 10:45, 15 minutes before the service begins. The nursery is open until coffee hour. We have toys, books, and activities for the little ones to explore spirit, community, and self. We have a nursery attendant and wonderful, caring volunteers who will attend to your child’s needs so that you can participate in our worship service
