We provide children  an opportunity to explore, reflect, and learn in a nurturing spiritual community.

Unitarian Universalist religious education programs offer:

  • Ethical growth – internalizing enduring values like justice, equity, and compassion, and gaining tools to act on them in everyday life.
  • Social growth – connecting with peers and people of all ages on a deeper level.
  • Finding acceptance among people who see beyond the superficial.
  • Spiritual growth – feeling a connection with the sacred within, among, and beyond us.

Our Children’s Director of Education  designs each Sunday’s instruction programs around the Unitarian Universalists seven Principles as they relate to children:

  1. We believe that each and every person is important.
  2. We believe that all people should be treated fairly and kindly.
  3. We believe that we should accept one another and keep on learning together.
  4. We believe that each person must be free to search for what is true and right in life.
  5. We believe that all persons should have a vote about the things that concern them.
  6. We believe in working for a peaceful, fair, and free world.
  7. We believe in caring for our planet Earth, the home we share with all living things.

Children’s religious education programs are offered on Sunday mornings.

Children present their songs and projects at the 4th Sunday Service of the month.

FROM THE OUUF CHILDREN’S RELIGIOUS EDUCATION PROGRAM NOVEMBER 3, 2019: 
Harmony Rutter, Teacher Assistant
W
e celebrated and explored Dia de los Muertos in Religious Exploration. Here is the ofrenda that we made to pay homage to our ancestors and loved ones who are no longer with us. The kids had a really fun time decorating sugar skull cookies and learning more about this beautiful tradition. We danced to La Bamba (one of my grandfather’s favorite songs) and dissected marigold flowers which are the traditional flower used to decorate the ofrendas on this holiday. The kids all took some marigold seeds of their own home to plant in
the Spring.
