Religious Education for Children and Youth

Summer RE

Summer Religious Education experiences for children and youth begin after the Story for All Ages in worship. Children exit to the RE wing for a different activity or guest star each week. (Children are also welcome to stay with their parents during service, or parents may accompany their children to RE.) Our schedule of activities is subject to change if something awesome comes along that we must include!

July 9: Rainbow UU Keychains
July 16: Deb and Her Guide Dog, Ocho
July 23: Slime
July 30: Making Music with Austin
August 6: Big Bubbles
August 13: Veggie Creatures
August 20: Tinker, Create, and Explore
August 27: Bubble Painting

We can use an extra set of hands on some of our RE days, so consider joining your child to explore with us.

Nursery Care for Babies and Toddlers up to Age Four

The nursery is staffed by childcare providers during Sunday morning worship services. We hope each child develops a sense of belonging in this warm and welcoming place.

Preschool, Fall through Spring

Our preschool program is drawn from classic UU curricula. It provides children with opportunities to grow in their sense of trust and caring and to develop a self-identity and a sense of connectedness with all of life. They learn about our congregation and religious tradition as they discover and express their own uniqueness.

Elementary Grades, Fall through Spring: Workshops on Theological Themes

Each class explores our church's theme of the month in a series of workshops and fun activities.

6th Grade, Fall through Spring: Amazing Grace

7th-8th Grades, Fall through Spring: 

7th-8th graders alternate each year between the Our Whole Lives (OWL) comprehensive sexuality education program and the Coming of Age program to explore life’s big questions and articulate personal values and beliefs. Contact Teresa Putnam, Director of Lifespan Faith Development, for more information.

High School, Fall through Spring

The high school youth engage throughout each year in learning experiences, worship, community building, social action projects for both the church and the larger community, and fun. They create a much-anticipated worship service each year with the leadership of the Teens on the Committee of UU Leadership (ToCUUL).
