WHAT'S HAPPENING IN YFM?

Last Sunday we defined "What is Love?" by asking how the children to define love and how they know they are loved. Then we made flowers as a reminder to recognize what we Love about ourselves so that we can bloom (see the orange flower).

This Sunday, we will begin writing "Love Flowers" to other people so that we can recognize what we love about another person (see the yellow flower).  And hopefully that flower can be a reminder of how our friends, parents, siblings, and other family members can be reminded about how to Love themselves. 
 
Join us and share the Power of Love in our YFM community!
 

ABOUT UCP'S YFM PROGRAM
We invite you to join us at Unity Center of Peace on Sundays at 11:00am with your younger family members. While you enjoy our Celebration Service in the sanctuary, they will benefit from participating in our robust, loving, nurturing curriculum for children and youth. All programs are age-appropriate and are led by our carefully selected, and fully background checked, Spiritual Education staff members.

Our YFM rooms are in the upstairs part of the building and Sunday School resides from 11am-12:10pm. Please be sure to sign your child in using the clipboard on the door. Near the end of service, the children will be brought downstairs by the Youth Ed teacher to give a brief announcement about what they did and what they learned and to receive a special UCP blessing by the minister and congretation. We currently do not have a program for teens (Y.O.U). Teens are encouraged to sit in the Sunday Service with their parents at this time.
