Children & Youth Education Pre-K to Grade 12
We want our children to develop a strong sense of personal values and to feel confident in expressing and acting upon them. Our Religious Education (RE) and Youth Group program for children and youth is grounded in Unitarian Universalism’s Seven Principles. It is informed by the spiritual practices and wisdom of the world’s religions including Earth-centered traditions. It looks to the words and deeds of prophetic people and to our own direct experience. Our goal is to provide children with a framework they can build upon to help them grow up to become responsible adults who make wise decisions about what to believe and how to live. We encourage our young people to define and live their values and to make a difference in the world.
