High School
Fall Con registration is live! We're lucky enough to be hosting Fall Con this year. This is a great opportunity for our youth to meet over 70 other UU youth from around the mountain west. Would your youth like to help plan the con? Email Amanda Esko at 

UU at Home
Do you want to learn more about Unitarian Universalists? Have you ever wondered what it means to be a Unitarian on the other six days of the week? Well, you're in luck! On the last Sunday of each month, Amanda and Lissa will be teaching UU@Home, for both parents and children, in Little Chapel between services. We will look for opportunities to live our principals out in the wild. We will check in with each other on steps we've taken as a whole family to honor the inherent worth and dignity of all people, or to celebrate the web of interconnected life! We will ask questions and learn about our history. We'll play with sequins and glue, and sing songs. Join the last Sunday of every month at 10:15 am!
