What We Offer Through the Lifespan
We provide children, youth, young adults and adults an opportunity 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 second graders engaging with a story about loss and bereavement, the fifth graders talking with a Muslim couple about Islam, the seventh graders learning about responsibility in a lesson from our progressive sexuality education program and the high-school youth working on social justice issues. Many programs incorporate social justice activities, worship opportunities, service trips, fellowship and fun.
Parents and other members of the congregation work together with our director of religious education to lead these programs. Teaching can be a very fulfilling way to deepen one’s own faith.
