Courageous and Beloved Conversations: Creating Unity in the Face of Divisions

How can we “create one sacred family,” as our Mission statement calls us to do, when the barriers that divide us remain so entrenched? The death of unarmed teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, this August and the response of communities all over the country bring into stark focus just how much “race” and ethnicity still shape how we see ourselves and each other, how we interact, and what kinds of experiences we encounter every day. Let us have the courageous, beloved conversations that acknowledge the source of what divides us and that offer solid ground for our real connections. Come join the conversation! We will also welcome the Coming of Age mentors and hear a rousing new song from the choir.
Worship Leader: The Rev. Nancy Palmer Jones; Worship Associate: Alice Lynch

Valientes y Amadas Conversaciones: Creando Unidad Frente a las Divisiones

¿Cómo podemos “crear una sagrada familia,” mientras nuestra Misión nos llama a hacer, cuando las barreras que nos dividen siguen siendo tan arraigadas? La muerte del adolescente desarmado Michael Brown en Ferguson, Missouri, este agosto y la respuesta de las comunidades en todo el país ponen en escueto enfoque de cuánto “raza” y etnicidad todavía son parte del cómo nos vemos a nosotros mismos y a otros, cómo nos relacionamos y en qué tipo de experiencias nos encontramos cada día. Permitámonos tener el coraje, amadas conversaciones que reconocen el origen de lo nos divide y lo que ofrecen las firmes bases para nuestras conexiones reales. ¡Únete a la conversación! También son bienvenidos los mentores de la mayoría de edad y escuchar una conmovedora nueva canción del coro.
Dirige: La Rev. Nancy Palmer Jones; Asociada de Culto: Alice Lynch

[back to top]

Nursery: Birth - four years

Location: Nursery, Church’s Lower Level
Childcare Staff: Kimberly Fernandez

We provide a safe, clean environment in which to support each child in initiating play activities at the developmental level they manifest. Each week our paid staff, Kimberly Fernandez, provides a loving presence, engaging children in games, stories and crafts with seasonal and holiday themes throughout the year.

Three- to five-year-olds: The Spiritually Growing Child

Young children learn about religion through relationships. Each week the children look and listen to an engaging picture book that reflects the week’s central theme with accompanying activities. Themes from September to June include: Individuality, Earth Day, Cycles of Life, Harvest, Thanksgving, Christmas, Hannukah, Winter Solstice, Family, Golden Rule, etc.

Grades 1-4: Spirituality for Children and Faithful Journeys

Spirituality for Children (September-December 2014): The program helps children recognize their potential, focus on goals and understand the impact of their choices.
Faithful Journeys (January-May 2015): hands-on activities as well as guided discussion, reflection, and self-expression to engage participants with various learning styles. Each session of this program includes rituals: sharing opening words, a chalice-lighting, centering in silence before hearing a story, and singing.

Grades 5-8: Junior High Youth Group – Building Bridges

Building Bridges is a world religions program to deepen youth’s understanding of the dynamic, fascinating, and varied world in which they live. It seeks to broaden their knowledge of humanity and embolden their spiritual search. Participants will visit other religions as well as engage in class activities.

Grades 9-12: Senior High Youth Group – Sundays, 11:30-12:30

The group offers its members a safe place to share their lives and find support and friendship among open-minded and loving peers. The group engages in discussions about issues relevant to youth’s lives and communities. They plan social and service projects throughout the year, and participate in youth conferences in area Unitarian Universalist churches under the auspices of the Pacific Central District of Unitarian Universalist Congregations and Young Religious Unitarian Universalists (YRUU). The youth group’s empowering philosophy educates youth to be leaders within the group, church community and denomination.
Youth Group Advisors: Rev. Geoff Rimositis, Rick Morris

Grades 8-10: Coming of Age Program

September 2014 - May 2015
Youth are paired with adult mentors to challenge themselves both physically and spiritually; develop meaningful relationships; gain a greater undertanding of Unitarian Universalism; and to have lots of fun. They'll go on three retreats, including a street retreat with the Faithful Fools Street Ministry in the Tenderloin section of San Francisco, and share their credo statement on Coming of Age Sunday, May 17
