We strive to integrate children and youth more fully into the congregation of UUFF. When children are present in the service, they get to truly be part of congregational life—to feel and see and hear what we UUs do on Sunday morning. They take part in our rituals and ceremonies, like chalice lighting, and they hear stories and speak up with their ideas during Time For All Ages, and they hold hymnals and sing—or pretend to sing, until they can read or know the songs by heart—our songs, learning our ways and our goals and our shared values in all of these experiences. This is an important thing to do, engaging them, embracing them in the heart of our life here, welcoming them into the circle of light of our chalice – teaching them about what it’s like to be a grown-up UU.
