Religious Education for Children & Youth
Unitarian Universalist religious education is dedicated to deepening spirits and empowering minds to live fulfilling lives and to transform our world towards the good. ~ Rev. Hilary Landau Krivchenia
Our religious education classes are designed to enrich the spiritual lives of children, youth and families. We strive to help one another grow in spiritual practice, deepen understanding and respect of our religiously diverse world, and live UU principles in daily life. We encourage parents to ask questions, visit classrooms, and participate in a variety of programs to support your spiritual growth. We look forward to working with you to nurture the spiritual lives of our children and youth!
Worship is an integral part of what we do as a spiritual community. Most Sundays, children in Kindergarten through Grade 6 attend the first 20 minutes of worship with their families. We also offer All Church Worship throughout the year, when all ages attend the full service. We hope you will join us for these important times of sharing worship together.
Our religious education program is supported through the annual church budget, so your generous pledge to the annual fund is requested. The vitality of our program also depends on the generous support of many dedicated volunteers. When you register your child, please let us know how you’d like to share your gifts with our community. Helping in the religious education program is a great way to get acquainted and learn more about our living faith. Successful background checks and a signed covenant of ethics are required of all volunteers working with children and youth. Those planning to teach, may obtain the background check form here; please complete it & submit it to Jules or Pratik.
Join us for a series of workshops designed to help young people put their beliefs into action. This program is open to all Kdgtn-12th grade students. Each FIA Sunday will include: opening worship; sharing of experiences; and age-appropriate activities for service learning. The goals of Faith-in-Action are to:
- Provide opportunities for young people to experience their power to make a positive difference in the world
- Experience learning and service as an integral part of our UU beliefs and practices
- Cultivate young people’s natural sense of justice, empathy, and compassion
Faith in Action Dates for 2017-18: Oct 8, Dec 3, Feb 4, Apr 1. On these dates, young people begin in their classrooms.
