Rainbow Promises

 

In addition to teaching our children about the monthly themes of our Sunday Services, our UUFD children's curriculum includes teaching values that are represented by colors of the rainbow, a symbol for unity and community. Each color represents an important value that children can use to develop unity and community throughout their lives.
