On Sundays during the service we hold a “Children’s Moment” where the children go up to the stage and the speaker for the day reads a short story. Then the children go downstairs for the rest of the service with their teachers.
The 7 children’s principles
- Each person is important
- Be kind in all you do
- We’re free to learn together
- Search for what is true
- All people need a voice
- Build a fair and peaceful world
- We care for Earth’s lifeboat
These principles are what we expose the children using material from their own real life experiences, and through studying world religions.
Thanks to the generous donation of lumber from Home Depot, and the dedicated work of PUUF member Forrest Duggan, our children grew vegetables this summer in the lot next to the PAC for donation to a Food Bank. In 2016 the children’s garden produced almost 300 pounds of produce for the food bank. During the summer adult volunteers watered and tended the garden. This fall the soil received organic amendments to prepare it for the 2018 growing season.
