Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Chalice Children: A Program about Our Unitarian Universalist Community for Preschoolers


This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine. — from "This Little Light of Mine," Hymn 118 in Singing the Living Tradition

There are many beautiful ways to express religion. One of our ways is the symbol of the flaming chalice. In this session, preschoolers will make a play-dough chalice to take home.


This session will help preschoolers:

  • Understand the shape of the chalice
  • Experience the Chalice Children group as safe and caring
  • Feel a growing sense of belonging in the group
  • Feel a sense of identity with a Unitarian Universalist congregation.

Participants will:

  • Become familiar with the chalice as a symbol of our Unitarian Universalist faith
  • Begin to develop a sense of identity as a Unitarian Universalist
