Religious Education Overview
What We Offer Through Lifespan Religious Education
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.
Religious education programs include more than classes. Many programs incorporate social justice activities, worship opportunities, service trips, fellowship, and fun.
Our Director of Lifespan Religious Education leads most of our congregations’ lifespan programs. Parents and other members of the congregation often lead them, too. Teaching can be a very fulfilling way to deepen one’s own faith.
Children’s religious education programs are offered on Sunday mornings during all services that aren’t multigenerational, middle and high school youth programs are during the 11:00 a.m. service on Sunday mornings September – May, and adult programs are usually offered on afternoons or evenings.
We invite you to explore these pages and contact our Director of Lifespan Religious Education to get connected.
