The main CVUUS service is from 10 to 11.  Kids stay for the first 15-20 minutes of the service to typically hear the welcome, a reading, sing a hymn with the congregation, and hear the “Time for All Ages” (a story or something designed with kids in mind).  The kids are invited to sit up front for the last part (but they don’t have to and some as the more cautious just stay in their seats).  After that, we sing an exit song and they leave to go right next door, for Religious Exploration (RE), which is the name for our programs for kids.

In the summer, RE is one all-ages group. They circle up, share a little bit if they want, and then do an activity all together.  At around 11, the kids have snack together, and then come back to join the adults at Coffee Hour at 11:15.

Activities are different every Sunday.  Here’s what is coming up for the summer of 2018:
