Religious Education for Children and Youth
Unitarian Universalists have a long history of supporting and welcoming children with special needs. We are committed to working together to provide a welcoming and safe environment and Religious Education experience for everyone.
Everyone begins each Sunday together in the meeting room. Children are invited forward after the chalice lighting for a Time for All Ages, but are also welcome to stay in their seat with their parents. The congregation then sings the children out to their Religious Education (RE) classes. Children may also stay and attend the full service with their parents. Religious Education classes end at 10:30am and 12:30pm. During summer months, we require parents to escort children in 5th grade and under to their class and sign them in and out. Newcomers and visitors are especially welcome to attend classes.
Newcomers and Visitors
Newcomers and visitors are encouraged to visit RE Classes and to bring a guest ticket with them to their class. Guest tickets are available from the greeters and help us to know who the child and adults are and any important information. We also use this as a way to follow up with you about your experience and answer any questions you may have.
Registration is ongoing and encouraged after three visits. We have tried to make it quick and easy– you can register ONLINE
To ensure your child / youth feels welcome, we would like to have the opportunity to introduce them to their teachers prior to class. If you have specific questions, please contact the Director of Religious Education (DRE). We strive to do our best to serve every child in our program including those who may have special medical, accessibility or other needs. The RE team and volunteers love when families help us to know more about their child through this optional survey. Please reach out to us so we can partner with you.
