Children and Youth
"The great end in religious instruction is not to stamp our minds irresistibly upon the young but to stir up their own."
~Rev. William Ellery Channing (1780-1842), father of American Unitarianism
We at Fourth Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Westchester see it as our task to nurture faith formation. Our respect for the children teaches them respect -- for themselves, for others, and for this fragile interdependent web of which we are a part.
At 10:30 each Sunday morning we begin with 20 minutes of time designed with young, active families in mind. All are welcome as we create space for families together and others to explore topics of Unitarian Universalism in ways that are active and transferable to home.
At 10:50 young families have a choice to remain in the sanctuary as adults and older youth arrive for a more "traditional UU service". Or they may participate in hands-on activities in the staffed nursery or lobby area, or head home as helpful to the family.
