CHILDREN’S PROGRAM & FAMILY MINISTRY
Children and their families are an important part of the Saskatoon Unitarians communities–when we say all are welcome, we mean babbling babies and crazy toddlers too.
Our family programs meet at the same time as the Sunday service. We meet on the building’s front lawn or in the lower hall and do activities that touch on UU principles, like making sandwiches to share with our community, or painting rocks for a pebble meditation, as well as taking the time to have fun together.
With our family programs, guardians may join the activities, or they may drop the children off with the family program and join the service in the sanctuary. Or, bring everyone to the service in the sanctuary and try out our “make-while-you-listen” corner in the back of the hall.
Get Outside! Family Meetups
On the third Sunday of the month, our Sunday morning family programs are outdoor meetups in or around Saskatoon. We have a small ceremony and activity, and then we go play and explore. Places we’ve visited include Beaver Creek, Cranberry Flats, Gabriel Dumont Park, and Chappel Marsh. Come dressed for the weather on these days–and maybe bring a sled!
Family Supper…and More
On the first Wednesday of the month, we host a family potluck dinner with a play time or activity afterward. This is a great time to relax and get to know each other.
