Religious Education for Children
We gather together to explore Unitarian Universalism through worship, conversation, games, art, and music. Together we create a community where both children and adults learn to understand the world as a place of wonder. We nurture leadership skills, helping all to create the tools to think creatively, act compassionately, and engage courageously with the world.
During this time of quarantine and social distancing, it is all the more important to find ways to connect with one another. Though we aren’t meeting in person, our church is not closed–we continue to learn, grow, worship, and support one another through creative online connections and sharing of physical resources.

Resources for Families: Visit our Family Ministry page for links to our children’s lending library, our parent support group, resources for discussing our commitment to racial justice with your children, and resources for deepening your faith at home.
Grounded in our seven UU Principles, our religious education classes help participants better understand and articulate our faith and explore answers to some big religious questions.
Religious education classes are available for children and youth (teens) during the 10:30 worship service. Curriculum is selected to support each stage of children’s faith development in exploring monthly congregational themes. Visit the links below to see what each of our age groups is learning about.
Our summer classes bring multiple ages together to explore a special theme or topic.
Looking for resources on a specific topic? Visit our online resources section for age-appropriate information on Unitarian Universalism, life issues, spiritual practices, and more.
We welcome visiting families! Children and youth are always welcome to visit our religious education classes. They are also welcome to bring a friend with them if they wish.
Please register your children once you know you plan to attend regularly. Registration helps us keep your children safe and keep you informed about all the wonderful things going on each week in church. Packets are available in the foyer of the Lighthouse building, or register online.
Cost of the Program
This program, like other core church programs, is funded by the generous giving of members through annual pledges to the church operating budget. There is no fee or tuition required. In addition, the program receives support from dedicated volunteers from all corners of the church community. Please consider supporting this and other church programs through your own time, talents and financial resources.
Attending worship, religious education classes, and special events regularly can help provide resources for your children and youth that they can’t get anywhere else. The friendships children create in their church communities help enrich and support their search for meaning in their daily lives. Please ensure you and your kids come to church as often as possible—we miss you when you’re not here!
