Worship

In the Sanctuary: Children are always welcome to remain with their parents and worship in the Sanctuary on Sundays. UUCF provides many opportunities throughout the year for families to worship together in meaningful multi-generational services. Our high school youth are also given additional opportunities to attend worship service throughout the year as they transition into young adults in our congregation. This year, monthly Friday night worship services will create additional opportunities for family worship. (Child care is always available for infants, toddlers and younger children.) Through regular attendance at worship service, families can strengthen connections in our community across generations and foster an appreciation of spiritual worship in our youngest congregants.
