Combination of three print Unitarian Universalist curricula: We Are Many, We Are One and Chalice Children.

"We Are Many, We Are One"--Stories, games and projects encourage children to honor themselves, their religious community, nature and cultures from around the world. Features rich array of games, songs and family newsletters to build relationships between teachers and home. 

"Chalice Children"--Based on the premise that children learn best through experience, this program helps nurture spiritual growth, creativity, and a sense of community through imaginative activities and rituals such as rhymes and fingerplays. Includes 36 sessions (plus 5 alternates) that introduce children to concepts such as birth and death, dreams and the natural world. 

K-2nd Grade

Wonderful Welcome (Tapestry of Faith)

By Aisha Hauser and Susan Lawrence
In this program, children identify intangible gifts central to Unitarian Universalism such as friendship, hospitality and fairness, and share these gifts with others.

3rd-5th Grade

Windows and Mirrors (Tapestry of Faith)

By Gabrielle Farrell, Natalie Fenimore and Dr. Jenice View
The metaphor of windows and mirrors represents the dynamic relationship among our awareness of self, our perceptions of others, and others’ perceptions of us.

6th-8th Grade

Amazing Grace (Tapestry of Faith) 

By Richard S. Kimball
This program guides youth through ways to determine right from wrong with a Unitarian Universalist perspective, and act on their new understandings.

9th-12th Grade

A Chorus of Faiths (Tapestry of Faith)

By Renee Ruchotzke and Hannah McConnaughay 
Part of a joint venture of the UUA and the Interfaith Youth Core (founded by Eboo Patel) and funded by the Shelter Rock congregation, these sessions develop UU youth as interfaith leaders. Youth explore values of service to our community and religious pluralism through stories from our Sources and personal storytelling, and coordinate an interfaith service.

Children's Chapel

Several times each year we offer Children’s Chapel for PreK – 5th grade. In Children’s Chapel we explore other cultures to help us learn more about ourselves -- and perhaps find a new celebration or concept that speaks to us.
