Mountain Desert District congregations are busting out all over: the Unitarian Universalist Church of Ogden, Utah, has also been designated a Breakthrough Congregation by the UUA for 2014. Click the right and left arrows on the image above for more pictures!

From the UU World:

Look around the sanctuary on a Sunday morning at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Ogden, Utah, and you’ll see children of all ages sitting with their parents. If you weren’t paying attention, you might have missed that they weren’t sung out to religious education classes early in the service. As the Rev. Theresa Novak’s sermon winds down, they’re still there in the pews—more or less attentive.

It goes against conventional wisdom to have children in the full hour of UU worship as a matter of course, but it works at UUCO. And the church’s embrace of multigenerational worship—and religious education for all ages—has drawn attention from across the Unitarian Universalist Association.

The congregation will be featured along with UU Boulder at General Assembly in 2015 in Portland, OR.
