We offer a wide variety of RE and worship options to adults, children and youth at USNH, including hour-long classes during both of our Sunday services, a “Young Religious Unitarian Universalist” youth group, monthly children’s chapels, small group ministry sessions for parents, multi-generational worship, Our Whole Lives health and sex education, adult class series, three “rite of passage” ceremonies, and regular multi-generational afternoon/evening activities. We offer nursery care for our youngest UU’s and multi-age classes with a two-year curriculum rotation for Kindergarten through 7th grade students.
Our third graders participate in “stepping up” which is a rite of passage ceremony centered on basic UU rituals and principles. Our 8th graders participate in an Affirmations/coming of age class, with a culminating service and travel experience to Boston, MA.
Multi-generational activities include community events such as our annual UNICEF/Halloween party, “Lego Night”, and The Buddy Program, which links children up with older members of the congregation for letter exchanges and shared activities. We emphasize community service as well, sponsoring fund raisers for UNICEF, Guest at your Table, local shelters and an annual reading-based campaign for our Philippine pen-pal, whom we sponsor through the Unitarian Universalist Partner Church Council.
