Welcome to the wonderful world of Faith Development at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Cherry Hill (UUCCH).
Families of all types and sizes, and people of all ages are welcome at UUCCH! It is our hope that everyone will feel accepted here, and that children and families know they are a vital part of this congregation.
The Lifespan Faith Engagement Fall 2019 Catalog was released on September 15. More classes will continue to be added for fall, as well as Spring, as the calendar is developed. Check back frequently for updates! You may view, download, or print the Catalog at this link. Do you have a course offering or suggestion for the Director of Lifespan Faith Engagement? You may submit your ideas here.
CHILDREN AND YOUTH PROGRAMMING
In addition to welcoming our children and families during worship, we strive to offer programming and events in the church that will broaden your experiences here, including a Back to School event, Family Fun Night, Holiday gatherings, Lock-Ins for youth, and more.
As far as Sunday mornings go, you have many options for your family. First, you are always welcome to attend worship together. The service is always broadcast into our Commons area (right outside of the sanctuary) if you choose. We have a nursery available for children under 5.
Also, UUCCH has wonderful Religious Education programming for children, from pre-K through 12th grade. About once a month, the children and youth remain in the larger service for a planned multigenerational worship experience. Every other month, the children have Children’s Chapel, a worship experience for children and youth geared directly toward them.
Most Sundays, following a part of worship called Time for All Ages, the children and youth go to their classroom for programming. Our current classes are split as follows: Chalice Children (ages 3-5), Spirit Play (1st - 3rd grade), Spirit Quest (4th – 5th grade), Jr. Youth (6th – 8th grade), and YA! (9th – 12th grade). I’d be happy to talk with you further about the content and curricula for any of the classes.
More than anything, we’re thrilled you chose to look at our programming, and hope to see you soon in person! It is the people of the congregation that make it come to life, and we’d love to have you and your family be a part of UUCCH.
If you would like to know anything more about our programs or have any questions, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com.
