Children & Families
Welcome! At First Church in Boston, we offer programs for children and parents to celebrate our “World of Wonder.” Together we explore life’s big questions, make friendships, and encourage spiritual growth. Our goal is to create a supportive community for families and to inspire kids with open minds, loving hearts, and helping hands.
Children in WOW Kids (ages 4-8 years) start in the service with their families. After the “Time for All Ages” we will head downstairs for our lessons, activities, and play. The 2016-2017 program is based on the UUA’s Love Surrounds Us curriculum, and is facilitated by RE teacher Lara Profitt.
Childcare is available every Sunday from September through June. Parents are welcome to bring infants and children under 4 years old downstairs before the 11:00am service. Josi, our childcare provider, looks forward to welcoming you!
June 4 – Making a difference: Today we read a Thai folktale called “It’s not my problem” that teaches us that all things are interconnected and that our action or lack of action does make a difference to the rest of the world. We’ll make magic wands and talk about what we would do if we had magical abilities to solve problems, and then talk about concrete ways we can actually make a difference in those scenarios.
June 11 – Working together: Today we read “A Bundle of Sticks,” and talk about how fighting between people can complicate the world in important ways. We’ll make our own bundles of sticks that will represent and acknowledge each person in the group, that we can keep to remind us of the importance of working together.
