Children’s Religious Education
Choosing your child’s religious education program is an important decision, just as important as choosing your own religious home. At First Unitarian, we take children’s spiritual, emotional, and social development seriously. We offer a safe place for children and youth to wonder, ask questions, and discover. We do this through the exploration of themes such as Unitarian Universalist identity, world religions, peace & justice, the web of life, and social justice. For a better understanding of what we teach, please read our Unitarian Universalist Kid’s Principles.
Children’s Religious Education classes are offered during our worship services throughout the school year, offering meaningful, age-appropriate worship for children and youth. Our curriculum facilitates spiritual growth and faith exploration in the context of a caring community.
Special Notes to Parents:
- Please register your child. This is the best way for us to keep in touch about activities.
- Good behavior is expected in classes. If problems arise, parents may be called to help.
- When a given curriculum contains sexually sensitive materials, parents will be advised.
- In accordance with our Board policy, all teachers read and sign the UUA Code Ethics, as well as agree to a background check.
- Please remember to pick up your children from the classrooms immediately following the church service.
