Unitarians talk about basics
Rev. Kit Ketcham will speak about the Unitarian Universalist principles and how this denomination’s non-creedal faith is shaped by an emphasis on how we treat each other. All are welcome. Values-based children’s religious exploration classes and childcare will be provided. The service is at 10 a.m. at 20103 Highway 525, just north of Freeland.

Church offers kids’ programs
All children ages 4 to 8 are welcome to join the Montessori-based Godly Play program beginning Sunday, Sept. 18, at St. Augustine’s-in-the-Woods off Honyemoon Bay Road near Freeland.
Understanding that children guide their own formation, the program seeks to instill in young people a love for the stories of the faith. Children ages 9 and up are welcome to join Tween Time, project-based learning to explore Christian life; or J2A which seeks to honor the transition from childhood into adulthood within the context of the Christian community. Visit www.staugustinesepiscopalchurch.org for more details.
