There are several workshops each year; two focusing on a World Religion and two focusing on Social Justice. There are also a number of group lessons and holiday lessons planned throughout the year. Group Lessons & Workshops allow for inspiring hands-on learning, cooperation and community building with all youth.
- The World Religion Workshops focus on the world religion of the year; introducing children to the different traditions, customs and the beliefs of that religion. Through stories, visual aids, activities and crafts the children learn about the ways of others; making connections to their own lives while recognizing and appreciating any differences as well.
This Year’s World Religion Focus: Hinduism
- The Social Justice workshop(s) focus on applying UCC & UUA values, recognizing current issues/events, helping others & making a difference. The lesson(s) that take place help the children gain a better understanding of the issue/event at hand and helps them to appreciate the importance of values-theirs and those of others.
- Group Lessons are flexible and fun. The lessons revolve around a theme, usually seasonal based-not necessarily religious-focusing on the time of year.
- Holiday Lessons are based on a specific holiday and focus on how that holiday is celebrated. Holiday Lessons may include: Advent, Hanukkah, Christmas Around the World, Easter, Passover/Seder, and more.
