We affirm and promote the search for truth and meaning as a life-long endeavor.
A Typical Day in Religious Education (RE)
After the Story for All Ages portion of the general service, the congregation sings the hymn “Go Now in Peace” as the children leave for class. Parents and guardians may choose to have children five and younger attend general service through the Story for All Ages or bring them to the nursery before the service begins.
In the Activities Building, children begin classes by lighting the chalice and sharing joys and concerns. Lessons follow. RE then ends with a snack. If time allows, children can create art, read, or play together.
In the Nursery
While in the nursery, children are attended by fully trained babysitters who help promote learning through play-time and sharing. The Religious Enrichment Program for toddlers teaches the youngest members of our congregation songs and rituals.
Chalice Children and Stepping Stones
6-8 Years and 9-12 Years
Each Chalice Children and Stepping Stones lesson emphasizes a UU principle and is modified to accommodate a wide spectrum of learning levels as needed.
Teen RE and Youth Group
Teen RE focuses on Unitarian Universalist education. Participants collaboratively choose the curriculum to be studied with the Teen RE teachers. The Coming of Age and Bridging programs are included in Teen RE.
Youth Group provides a social function for the teenagers of the congregation. In Youth Group teens also explore religious education beyond Unitarian Universalism and are encouraged to take part in social justice and community leadership.
