Each fall, all UU Santa Fe families should complete a registration form for children and youth actively participating in the Family Ministry program. Current information enables us to keep you informed about church events and activities throughout the year and, most importantly, helps keep children and youth safe while under the supervision of Faith Development staff, childcare workers, and program volunteers. Please register your children and youth if you begin to attend regularly (doesn't matter if you are a church member or "friend").
FAmily Ministry Program Calendar 2018
Children and Youth join the adults in the sanctuary for the first 15-20 of the worship service unless otherwise publicized.
All of our rooms can be reached as you go to or through Fellowship Hall (Red Door). As you enter our main lobby entrance, you can make your way to Fellowship Hall by following the short corridor on your right, past our drinking fountains.
GUIDELINES FOR CONDUCT
We all make mistakes at times or fail to live up to the promises we have made to one another. At those times, we will lovingly remind each other of our better selves, get the help from someone we trust, and listen to one another. It may be helpful to apologize and make amends for what we have done. If we see these principles not being followed, we each have a responsibility to respond because we want this place to be safe for all. If anyone has difficulty keeping the covenant while they are in group meetings or worship, the following will happen…
- First…A responsible adult immediately offers a quiet reminder that the behavior is out of bounds.
- Next…The adult and child/youth hold a private conversation.
- Then…The child/youth has a private conversation with the Lifespan Learning Director (LLD) who will be in touch with the parents.
- After a family conversation, the parents contact the LLD to indicate the child or youth understands the behavior was unacceptable and agrees to work harder to keep the covenant.
