Your First Visit

Welcome to Mount Vernon Unitarian Church

Join us for a Sunday service.  We are a casual and friendly congregation. Dress for adults and children is whatever each person is comfortable wearing. We wear name tags to help us get to know each other.

During the school year, Sunday services are at 9:15am and 11:15am, with classes and activities children during the second half of the service.  In between services is a coffee hour where you can relax and enjoy refreshments and conversation.

As you get to know us, you may want to attend a special events for newcomers.

Children and Youth – Welcome!

During the Summer, Spirit Play is offered to Pre-K – 5th Graders and Nursery care is provided to children under 3 years old during the service.

Religious Education for children and youth is offered during both Sunday services during the regular church year (September – May).

During the 9:15 service, Pre-K through 5th graders meet for Spirit Play, a Montessori-like approach to UU religious education.

During the 11:15 service, curriculum-based classes for pre-kindergarten through 12th grade are offered.

Nursery care for children ages 3 and under is available during both services.

Children and youth are encouraged to participate in the first part of the worship service. Early in the service, there is a special segment called For All Ages in which children are invited to join in front of the stage for a story related to the sermon topic. Following For All Ages, children go to their religious education classes and youth go to their meeting room.

For first-time visitors, teachers and greeters are present to show you to your child’s classroom. You’re welcome to accompany your child if you want to sit in and listen.

Dress for children, except for very special occasions, is the same as for parents: whatever is comfortable.
