We Hold Hope Close

In this community, we hold hope close.IMG 1538
We don’t always know what comes next, but that cannot dissuade us.
We don’t always know just what to do, but that will not mean that we are lost in the wilderness.

Despite all of the changes and adjustments this year, we come together as a community of love and learning, embracing hope and curiosity. Thank you to everyone who helps & supports our RE program and the wonderful students who remind us to hope!

Our RE classes were online this month due to the Omicron surge, but that didn't stop us from having fun, singing songs, experiencing mindfulness, considering intentions, exploring UU Principles and Wisdom Tales from around the world!

Emma, our early childhood educator, and Jessica Q, our youth childcare provider, led family gatherings with songs, stories, activities and reflections about UU principles & the monthly theme: Living with Intention. Our elementary class acted out wisdom tales from faiths and cultures around the world as a way to learn about UU Principles and values. Each participant got an activity bag (pictured above) with stories, supplies for art activities, and fidget tools.

 Hopefully, you had a chance to watch the Coming of Age service on January 16: Be A King. Congratulations to our Coming of Age class for planning and sharing this inspiring service. Up next for COA: mentor matches! A huge thank you to our mentors for this year.

Jessica, our Director of Faith Development and Community Engagement, is on maternity leave but you will still get a response if you email her at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
