Around the Church Around the Year is a yearlong curriculum that helps the children feel that they are part of this Unitarian Universalist Community. The children will begin to understand the faith and practices of Unitarian Universalism. The program deals with the children’s experiences of life and death, the environment, human relationships, and personal identity in age appropriate ways. The children will gain an appreciation for Unitarian Universalist people, buildings, rituals, and celebrations. They will also have fun becoming friends with our classmates!
