Kids

New! Check out our Summer 2019 RE Activities.

We are a welcoming congregation that strives to provide responsive, inclusive, and engaging programming for kids ages 6 months – 18 years. Our foremost goal is to empower students to find their own voices and develop their own power to make change.

Visit us! New children are always welcome. Dress your kids for messy projects and spending time outside, so they can join in all the fun. Typically, children begin the morning in the Meeting Room with their families and move to kids’ activities after a story for all ages. At any time, you are welcome to join your children in activities downstairs. Your children are welcome to be with you in the Meeting Room (upstairs) if that’s more comfortable for your family. We have activity bags at the entrance to the Meeting Room for anybody who wants to keep their hands busy.
