Religious Education

We want our kids to see church school as a warm, welcoming place where they feel accepted and loved.

Spirit Play

Overview

UUC offers a vibrant, high-quality religious education program for children and youth. Our Sunday church school provides engaging, educational curricula for all ages, from infants and toddlers to high school students.

Our primary goals for our children and youth are to help them develop a strong Unitarian Universalist identity, to build deep relationships within the UUC community, and to nurture their spiritual lives. We want our children to enjoy learning about the UU faith tradition and feel comfortable explaining to others what it means to be UU. We work hard to build strong relationships between students and to cultivate a feeling among our children and youth that UUC is their home.

Our classes are lead by volunteers from our church, who are selected, trained and supervised by Religious Education staff. We look for teachers and advisers who enjoy working with young people, have a strong UU identity, and have effective communication skills. They are not expected to have all of the answers, but to have open hearts and to be able to relate well to our kids.

One of the advantages of being a Unitarian Universalist is that we are supported in making individual choices. We are sensitive to the reasons why families may not attend church every Sunday and also, in order to help create a quality religious education experience for all of our children and youth, we ask our families to make a strong commitment to our church school. If you register your children, we expect that you will bring them to church school on a regular basis throughout the entire church school year (September-June) and that you will attempt to be involved in whatever ways you can, with the church school, such as volunteering to be a room parent, a teacher, an assistant, or even to bring snacks.
