Harry & UU: Based on the Harry Potter series of books by J.K. Rowling that immerse children in the idea that one can work to make the world better. The curriculum includes many fun wizarding activities, but the main purpose of the curriculum is social action. The class forms a chapter of Dumbledore’s Army and fights against seven Horcruxes during the year. The Horcruxes are real world social action projects.

Multigenerational One Room Schoolhouse (MORSH) | Social Hall
On the second Sunday of every month, adults, children and youth gather to explore the ministry theme through song, story, mindfulness practice & activity stations. There will be activities suitable for adults & children. This is a great opportunity to get to know community members of all ages- you never know when you will make a new friend. Please plan to join us and support our efforts to grow community through religious exploration – together!
