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.

Supporting Children and Youth’s Spiritual Growth

Choosing your child’s religious education program is an important decision, just as important as choosing your own religious home. If you are searching for an open and affirming community in which your child can grow in spirit and in love, you have found the right place! This is not your typical Sunday School.

Our program our goal is to offer…

• A safe place for children and youth to wonder, ask questions, and discover their own
unique spiritual nature.
• A focus on personal spiritual growth, open faith exploration and living values in the
larger world.
• A diverse and multi-age community – truly a village to support your family.
• Meaningful, age-appropriate worship for children and youth.
• Exploration of themes such as Unitarian Universalist identity, world religions, Jewish
and Christian heritage and social justice.
• Special events that serve to bring our all-ages community together and enhance the
experience of every child, youth and adult.

Please see more information about nursery, preschool, elementary, middle school, high school, young adult, adult and family programming on their individual pages.
