Curriculum

Fall 2017

Pre-Kindergarten – First Grade: Room 1

Love Surrounds Us by Christy Olson and Lynn Kerr

At the core of our Unitarian Universalist community are our seven Principles. The Principles encompass all the ingredients of a good and faith-filled life based on equality, freedom, peace, acceptance, truth, care, and love. This program explores all the Principles in the context of Beloved Community of family/home, school, neighborhood. Participants engage in activities that emphasize the love they feel in community.

Second – Fifth Grade: Room 2

Toolbox of Faith by Katie Covey

Toolbox of Faith invites youth to reflect on the qualities of our Unitarian Universalist faith, such as integrity, courage, and love, as tools they can use in living their lives and building their own faith. Each of the 16 sessions uses a tool as a metaphor for an important quality of our faith such as reflection (symbolized by a mirror), flexibility (duct tape), and justice (a flashlight).

Youth Group, 6th-12th Grade: Room 3

Riddle and Mystery by Mary K. Isaacs

The purpose of Riddle and Mystery is to assist sixth Graders in their own search for understanding. Each of the 16 sessions introduces and processes a Big Question. The first three echo Paul Gauguin’s famous triptych: Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going? The next ten, including Does God exist? and What happens when you die?, could be found on almost anyone’s list of basic life inquiries. The final three are increasingly Unitarian Universalist: Can we ever solve life’s mystery? How can I know what to believe? What does Unitarian Universalism mean to me?

High School

Our high school age youth are invited to participate at Tapestry in several ways: attend worship services, attend Youth Group, volunteer as a greeter, volunteer in the classrooms and/or join the choir.
