Return to Programs for Children and Youth

Pre-K and Kindergarten

Our Chalice Children (as we call them) program strives to provide experiences around the strength of community, the wonder and awe that transcend everyday understanding, and life issues we all share. Early childhood is filled with curiosity and wonder. In a group setting, with loving adult guides, young children can engage in spiritual seeking, develop their openness to sharing, and experience the benefit of a supportive community. Their time in Chalice Children can set a pattern for the rest of their lives and bring lasting benefits.

Sunday Mornings Schedule. Sometimes our Assemblies are meant to be multi-generational and our families stay together through the entire Assembly. These are usually special holidays.

On most Sunday mornings, young children begin in Assembly with their families at 10:30 and are present for our chalice lighting, some music, and an all-ages story time. Around 10:45, young children are sung to their Chalice Children Program by the congregation. Parents are asked to escort their children to the art gallery (just outside the Assembly Hall) to connect with Chalice Children leaders and sign their children into the program each Sunday. Later, parents are asked to sign their children out of our Chalice Children room at 11:45. Visiting families are welcome and encouraged to attend children’s programming together.

Family Music Time: ​First Sunday of Each Month, 9:30-10:15am featuring Early Childhood Music Education Specialist, Maureen Hunt. Families with babies and toddlers are invited to connect with their little one and other families through music.  Older siblings welcome.

​Meetings. If a parent of a young child wants to attend a committee or Board meeting at the Society, childcare can be arranged by advanced request (at least 7 days in advance, please). Did you know? FUS can bring most meetings to you in the comfort of your home while your little one takes a nap or plays at your feet. Using the Zoom Meeting online platform, committee meetings are more accessible to every member.
