_MG_0174Parenting is a profoundly rewarding and often times grueling spiritual practice. We have support and discussion groups for parents, plus workshops on issues like discipline, talking with kids about sex and drugs, and cultivating spiritual practices as a parent. We know that being a family can be hard work, and that it is easier, more rewarding, and more meaningful in community.

Parents’ Discussion Circle: We gather to share our personal and spiritual paths as parents on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month at 10 am.  Each session is centered on a discussion theme that fosters thoughtful and authentic dialog.

Parents’ Support Group: We are a supportive and listening space for parents of children with special needs, or for those facing particular challenges in parenting.  We meet on the 3rd Sunday of the month at 9:45 am.

Parents Night Out: Provides a evening of free childcare for a parent’s night out once a month from September through May on second Saturdays. Before stepping out, we share a brief time together to explore UU Principles in relation to parenting.

Special Speakers have joined UUCB’s family community to talk about such topics as raising gender non-conforming children, building respect in and for girls, and keeping kids safe in schools and communities as they develop their authentic selves.
