United Parish of Lunenburg believes that an active faith is developed in a learning environment that teaches
compassion through involvement with others. In this atmosphere we all experience our church as an extended family, which
is a loving, fun, forgiving, and accepting community.
Developing and promoting youth activities is important at the United Parish, and so we have a near-full-time
Education Coordinator. UPL offers activities for our younger members every Sunday, and often on weekends. Each group offers actives that are geared to make the lessons age-appropriate educational as well as fun. The
more popular activities are:
Sunday School (grades pre-K to 6)
- meets before worship in the Andrew Hall with
volunteer teachers (rotational basis)
- classes are grouped according to age
- classes follow a planned curriculum, using themes of music, story telling, computer skills, art, cooking, science, and drama as methods to encourage the students' different aptitudes
Junior Breakfast Club (grades 7-8)
Young people make a growth transition as they develop more independence, appropriate social skils, and greater Christian learning. We are always making
small changes in order to make sure the program remains effective for our teenagers.
