Religious Education (RE) is provided for children who are at least 4 years of age. Our current curriculum encourages children to:
- express their feelings about themselves and others
- see the fellowship as a place for making and caring about friends
- appreciate how we are all alike yet different
- view nature as a source of gifts that needs our care
- celebrate the different religions and cultures of the world
The first unit emphasizes the purposes and affirmations of our Unitarian Universalist community and promotes our Unitarian Universalist principles and values.
Unit two builds on children’s natural interest in the wonders of nature. These seven sessions encourage participants to recognize the miracles of the earth as their own special treasures, which deserve our appreciation and rely on our care.
The third unit celebrates the uniqueness and value of each participant while fostering group identity. These sessions form the core of this curriculum, promoting Unitarian Universalist relationships and anti-bias values.
Unit four introduces the values of various religions and cultures and reveals the diversity of human experience.
If you have any questions about our Religious Education program for children, please contact the Children’s RE Coordinator.
As Unitarian Universalists, we believe that Religious Education is a life-long experience. We do our best to offer support for every person on their path toward truth and meaning.
Currently, our adult Religious Education offering is our discussion forum on Sunday mornings. Additional classes focusing on specific topics are formed as individuals are interested.
Past and possible future topics include the following as well as many others:
- New UU
- Building Your Own Theology
- Articulating Your Faith
- What Do You Stand For?
Regardless of your age, abilities, level of education, or place along your spiritual journey, there is a place for you in our religious education program. If you are interested in a particular topic, please let the Adult RE Coordinator know.
