Important! Please Read!

We have been experiencing a growing issue with peanut residue in the building, especially in the library.  Please, do not bring peanut products into the building, and if your little ones enjoy their peanut butter snacks before coming, please be sure their hands are clean before they touch surfaces used by everyone.  We are seeing almost daily allergic reactions, so we ask you to please be diligent. It may be an inconvenience to you, but it can be life-threatening to those who are allergic.

Registration – Faith Development

2019-20 Faith Development Registration is open now! All youth ages 6 months to 18+ need to be registered with our Faith Development Department to attend classes. Please signup right here online at

LOOK WHAT UUCC Sunday Faith Development classes have for youth!
Spirit Play ages (3yrs – 3rd grade)  – Spirit Play is a Montessori-based learning/classroom model developed to foster exploration in our youngest youth. 
Harry and UU (3rd grade – adult) – Get ready for some fun as we join Dumbledore’s Army and fight Horcruxes all year long! It’s going to be a blast… wait till you see our Harry Potter classroom!!! Come join the fun!

Families of 3rd graders – The Faith Development team learned that we have lots of 3rd grade youth who really would like to have a choice of what class they attend this year. Since we’re starting off our very first Spirit Play classroom, we’d love to have the youth attend in Spirit Play, but we realize the excitement around the Harry Potter curriculum is overwhelming great. If your 3rd grader would like to attend the Harry and UU class, they are welcome to check them out. Our 3rd grade youth will have the choice of attending either the classrooms this year.

Have fun and find your inner wizard if you’d like! OR come hang our with the younger crowd. We’ll explore all kinds of faith based UU stories and traditions through our Spirit Play curriculum. More about each curriculum can be found here.

Come check out our Book Swap area in the lobby. Some amazing new chapter books have been added! Bring a book to swap or just grab one that looks interesting. This area is kind of our rendition of a ‘Free Library” for youth. Please, help Dumbledore’s Army fight the Illiteracy Horcrux! READ A BOOK TODAY!!!


Faith Development Needs You!!! UUCC needs your help and commitment to bring our community the most vibrant and valuable faith experiences for our youth. Our two main offerings for Faith Development this year are NEW for us. Youth ages 3 years to 3rd grade will be experiencing the much awaited SPIRIT PLAY classes. The older group ages 3rd grade  to adult are exploring the Harry and UU curriculum based on social actions awareness programs and the famous Harry Potter books written by J.K. Rowling (teachers and guides are invited to dress up in a HP costume every single week if they’d like to add to the full experience). Please stop by the registration table in the Social Hall during this weeks (Sept 8th) Pot Luck or contact Mary Scherden, DFD @ for more information.
