Sunday Mornings: Our Online Offerings

In every Sunday service, we include a Children's Focus—a story and/or object lesson for children and people of all ages.

Please join us for our online Sunday service via Zoom beginning at 11:00 a.m. After Children’s Focus, children and youth of all ages will connect to a separate Zoom room for a multi-age religious education class based on the Soul Matters program. The Zoom log in information will be sent to families each week and posted in the chat during each Sunday service. If you are new, please contact Joanne Dingus at dre@uufp.org to get log in information for RE classes and events.

> February 28, 2021 Children’s Focus: Martin's Big Words: The Life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

by Doreen Rappaport, illustrated by Bryan Collier

Martin’s Big Words tells the life journey of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with reverence and dignity -- beginning with his childhood experience of seeing "White Only" signs throughout his hometown, presenting his efforts as a civil rights crusader, and ending abruptly with his assassination.

By using simple, direct language -- much of it King's -- the text offers young readers an accessible yet profound introduction to King's legacy. It explains that as a child, he listened to his minister father's "big words" and vowed to inspire others with such words when he grew up. The book's final sentence: "His big words are alive for us today," testifies to King's success -- and to the timeless importance of this great leader's ideals.
