Religious Education for Children and Youth
Unitarian Universalists have a long history of supporting and welcoming children with special needs. Please contact our Director of Religious Education to discuss your family’s circumstances and your child’s need and how we can work together to provide a welcoming and safe environment and RE 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 attend the full service with their parents. Religious Education classes end at 10:30am and 12:30pm. Parents of children in second grade and under are responsible for escorting their children to and from class. Newcomers and visitors are especially welcome to attend classes.
- Middle School- Young Unitarian Universalist Middle Schoolers (YUUMS)
- High School –Young Religious Unitarian Universalists (YRUU)
All children must be registered in the RE Program annually. Newcomers and visitors are encouraged to visit RE Classes. Registration is ongoing and encouraged after three visits. We have tried to make it quick and easy– you can register online, download a paper form or pick up a copy when you are here on Sunday.
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 see the Director of Religious Education (DRE). It is recommended you contact the DRE in advance to discuss any specific circumstances or special needs.
