Religious Education for All Ages
What We Offer Through the Lifespan
We provide children, youth, and adults opportunities to explore, reflect, and learn in a nurturing spiritual community. Unitarian Universalist religious education programs offer all ages, inspiring:
- Ethical growth – internalizing enduring values like justice, equity, and compassion, and gaining tools to act on them in everyday life.
- Social growth – connecting with peers and people of all ages on a deeper level. Finding acceptance among people who see beyond the superficial.
- Spiritual growth – feeling a connection with the sacred within, among, and beyond us.
Religious education programs include more than classes. On a Sunday you might find the preschoolers singing songs about kindness, the 2nd graders engaging with a story about loss and bereavement, the 5th graders talking with a Muslim couple about Islam, the 7th graders learning about responsibility in a lesson from our progressive sexuality education program, and the high-school youth raising money for the local homeless shelter. Many programs incorporate social justice activities, worship opportunities, service projects, fellowship, and fun.
Our religious educator oversees programs for children and youth, which are led by parents and others members of the congregation. Our minister along with other adult volunteers lead adult programs. Teaching across the lifespan can be a very fulfilling way to deepen one’s own faith.
Religious education programs for children and youth are typically offered on Sunday mornings. Adult programs are usually offered on afternoons or evenings.
We invite you to explore these pages and contact our religious educator to learn about programs for children and youth, and our minister to learn more about adult programs.
