Youth

  • CazUUm – Friday, May 14 at 3:00 pm – Sunday, May 16 at 5:00 pm PST

    CazUUm is the online counterpart to CanUUdle, the beloved annual national conference for Unitarian Universalist youth (ages 14-19) and their adult advisors.

    This year’s theme is Finding TreasUUre! Inspired by pirates and others who find treasure in unlikely places, together we will uncover the precious gems that are hiding in these difficult times. Zoom will allow us to gather virtually to experience many of our favourite things about this community. Activities will include

    • youth-led worship
    • connecting in small groups
    • imagining the future of Canadian UU youth organizing
    • and of course, plenty of fun and games!

    There will also be opportunities for multigenerational connection with junior youth, young adults, and others during the traditional Bridging Ceremony and Sunday morning worship. Find out more.

All Ages

  • Social Justice Storytime – 8.30 am Saturday mornings
    Routine and connection are vital as we all move through this time. With that in mind, we are offering a daily Time For All Ages where all UU’ers, from newborns to the elderly and everyone in between can light a chalice, breathe, and enjoy a social justice themed picture book. Find out more.
  • Spiritual Exploration at Home 
    Sign up to receive a monthly package of activities to do at home as a family. The package will explore our church theme for the month and will activities suitable for all ages. Register now.

Parents

  • POP: Parents of Preschoolers
    POP offers a weekly pre-recorded video (about 3 minutes long) and a short/simple worksheet that focuses on incorporating spirituality and UU principles and values into everyday family culture.  We will also have an optional monthly check-in/ discussion time where we can chat about anything that came up in the videos or anything else that has come up over the month (times to be established). Find out more.

We are continuing to explore how to make connections and offer children’s programs online for Spring 2021. If you have any suggestions please let me know.
