Intergenerational

Our special Intergenerational Church School days intentionally take into account the fact that there are learners of different ages and experiences in attendance. The programs seek to teach to the hearts of everyone present.

Intergenerational teaching and learning benefits both adults and children. It provides opportunities for all generations to understand the material differently and benefit from another perspective. It is a unique opportunity for the young to learn from the old, and for the old to learn from the young.

Examples of past Intergenerational programs include: World Communion Bread Making, Advent Wreath Making, Advent Spiral, and Holy Week Walk.

While we would like to strongly encourage participation from people of all ages, United Parish Safe Church Policy requires that children be accompanied by an adult.

Join us for a Sacred Stroll at Brookline's Riverway Park this Saturday, July 17 from 10am-12pm. Our Sacred Stroll this weekend will start at the Longwood T stop on Chapel Street at 10am and together we will enjoy nature and art as we walk! The Studios Without Walls is presenting its annual exhibition of outdoor sculptures at Brookline’s Riverway Park with the theme “The Light Gets In”. We will take a leisurely walk around the art and the park, and then share in a time of contemplative worship and discussion of the art we experience. People and animals of all ages are welcome! The entire route is accessible and paved. Parents, please accompany your children. Please RSVP to Deb H. at adultdeepening@upbrookline.org if you plan to attend, to help us plan for worship materials and water. Having RSVPs also helps us notify folks if we need to reschedule due to bad weather.
