The K-1 OWL class will begin February 2015.
Our Whole Lives is a comprehensive values-based sexuality education program, with age-appropriate curricula for: grades K-1, grades 4-6, grades 7-9, and grades 10-12. The curriculum is rooted in our Unitarian Universalist value of the inherent worth and dignity of all people.
Our Whole Lives helps participants make informed and responsible decisions about their sexual health and behavior. It equips participants with accurate, age-appropriate information in six subject areas: human development, relationships, personal skills, sexual behavior, sexual health, and society and culture. Grounded in a holistic view of sexuality, Our Whole Lives not only provides facts about anatomy and human development, but also helps participants clarify their values, build interpersonal skills, and understand the spiritual, emotional, and social aspects of sexuality.
Grade K-1 Supports parents in educating children about birth, babies, bodies and families. Following a Parent Meeting and Parent/Child Orientation, the 8 sessions engage children with stories, songs and activities and include a weekly HomeLink - a homework project for parents and children to do together. Promotes dialogue between parent and child.
Grade 4-6 A program for learning about and discussing the physical and emotional changes of puberty. Participants will read “It's Perfectly Normal” by Robie H. Harris, and examine topics such as values and sexuality, communication and decision making. Each session includes a HomeLink - a homework activity for parents and children to complete together.
Grades 7-9 A sexuality education program for youth that models and teaches caring, compassion, respect, and justice. A holistic program that moves beyond the intellect to address the attitudes, values, and feelings that youth have about themselves and the world. Unlike many other sexuality curricula currently available, this program is comprehensive and progressive. In an inclusive and developmentally appropriate manner, it addresses sensitive topics that are typically excluded. Topics include sexuality and body awareness, relationships, gender and diversity, sexual orientation and gender identity, and responsible sexual behavior and safety.
High School Using a comprehensive approach, this program helps senior-high youth gain the knowledge, life principles and skills they need to express their sexuality in life-enhancing ways.

Feburary’s Theme: “Love”
THE KING'S BRIDE - An intergenerational Worship Service which is designed to be a soap opera of how to find 'true love' and points out that 'love' and 'drama' often go hand in hand. By looking at the struggle for love in the kingdom, a king and the good people of the land learn a lot about themselves, each other, and the importance of love. QUESTION: What about love do we learn when we strip off all the drama often found within romance?
February 8 (One service at 11:00 a.m.)
HERE IF YOU NEED ME - Have you ever been needed by someone who was facing an unthinkable situation - one in which it seemed like the universe was unbearably cruel and unkind - and were afraid to show up because you knew not what to say? And yet, you had to show up, because the love you felt for the person made it unthinkable to stay away? What is it that allows us to say, "I'm here if you need me" and what do you bring with you when they call?
Congregational Meeting in the Social Hall immediately following the service.
THE MYTHS AND REALITIES OF TRUE LOVE - Valentine’s Day, at least as it's described by Hallmark, is filled with swooning and fawning, batting eyes, and falling in love. But what happens after the card has been read, kisses have been shared, and all the candy hearts have been finished off? That's when we get to see if the love we worked for is the love that's true. QUESTION: What is 'true love' and how does it differ from the schmaltzy, commercialized, 'Hallmark' understanding of love?
Bob Miess, Ministerial Settlement Representative (MSR) from the Pacific Central District, preaches on how to find the next settled minister.
