Whole Life Learning: Greetings learners of all ages!
We are connecting and learning together “virtually” while the meetinghouse is closed for safety. Some events are happening already, and we’re busy planning more:
For Adults: Presentations, films, and discussions to probe issues we care about (e.g., current events that relate to social, racial, and environmental justice) as well as our new Butterfly Hours casual open-mic storytelling via Zoom .
For All Ages: A variety of special multi-generational events, including holiday parties, beach cleanups, and Family Butterfly Hours (a multi-generational version of our casual open-mic Zoom storytelling).
For Children & Youth:
For Babies & Preschoolers: Professional child care in the nursery (once we are in the Meetinghouse again)
For Children: Stories read aloud, arts and crafts, and activities inside and outside
For Middle Schoolers: Popular UU programs – OWL, Neighboring Faiths, and Coming of Age – as well as Youth Group
For High School Youth: Social, racial, and environmental justice projects, and get-togethers just for fun – all determined by the youth and their Youth Group advisor.
Underlying our activities are our shared values, expressed in the Unitarian Universalist Principles, and the desire for personal growth and connection.
