Spirit Play training coming to town

Mark your calendars on April 29, 2017

The First Unitarian Fellowship of Nanaimo is offering a training day to learn the Spirit Play curriculum Saturday April 29, 2017.

This methodology is based on Maria Montessori’s theory of children’s learning processes.  The curriculum incorporates hands-on, aesthetic story and art materials to help the children make sense of life’s religious questions and spiritual experiences.  The stories come from our six Unitarian Sources and our seven Unitarian principles. Check out our Children and Families page for more information and registration.

Gather Around the Flame at the Messy UU Church

This month’s Messy UU Church is happening Friday, Feb. 17th, 5 pm to 7:30 pm, and it’s going to be a blast! The theme is Gather Round the Flame. We will be creating an indoor campfire, eating camp food, and sharing camp stories and songs. Older kids and adults will make a homemade fire starter and build forts together. There will be baked beans and s ‘mores – yum! We will focus on coming together around flames – representing the centre of our community.  Everyone welcome.  Please RSVP by e-mailing messyUUchurch@gmail.com or call 250 755-1215.
