Religious Exploration– In the Islamic culture, the Kaaba is a huge black stone structure that sits at the heart of the Grand Mosque, Islam’s most sacred place of worship. Some of its parts are connected to important episodes in Islamic tradition. The Kaaba is said to have been built by the prophet Abraham and his son Ishamet; this week the children of First Parish will learn about this important piece of Islamic history and make their own replicas of the Kaaba!
Please Note – Religious Exploration at First Parish is in need of adult volunteers to lead and assist in spirit play and nursery! Please contact us at if you are able to volunteer!

Religious Exploration – As many of you know last week we kicked off our Harry Potter UU curriculum and the kids got sorted into their houses! This week we will be brushing up on our UU principles with a very special potions class. For those ‘students’ who have never studied the UU principles not to worry this is an entry-level potions course. Each student is required to complete a full set of UU principle potions and the Professors will be there to help them craft and label their colorful creations.

Spirit Play – Once again this week our spirit play class will be joined by Sonia! She’s got a fantastic story picked out as well as some activities after. We are in need of an assistant so if you are available please click the link below and sign up!
