Our children our the future of our liberal faith and values. We emphasize and encourage curiosity in a safe learning atmosphere, where warmth, love, acceptance and joy can be found.
We offer religious education for children in pre-school or older from September through May during the 10:30 AM Sunday Service only. We encourage all children to join the congregation for the start of the service. After opening words, our chalice lighting, a song and a story for all ages, the children are sung out to their classrooms by the congregation.
In our religious education program, we use the UUA developed curriculum,Tapestry of Faith. This is a series of programs and resources for all ages that nurture Unitarian Universalist identity, spiritual growth, a transforming faith, and vital communities of justice and love.
Our Spirit Play Room (formerly known as the Nursery) is supervised and offers a loving, nurturing environment for our youngest children.
