For our children and youth’s religious education program, we envision a welcoming, safe, and exciting environment in which young people develop a rooted Unitarian Universalist identity and sense of community along with a personally meaningful, vibrant spirituality.
Our mission is to engage children and youth in fun and meaningful activities that help them develop a positive religious identity, an ethical approach to life, a personal spirituality, skills to live in a world of religious diversity, and a sense of interconnectedness with all people and the entire universe.
Our children learn:
- about their rich Unitarian Universalist heritage and its traditions;
- about people and groups of people who have devoted their lives to noble causes;
- that they are unique, precious individuals;
- that it is okay to ask questions and to think for themselves;
- compassion and respect for all people, regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, or culture;
- skills for living in community with others;
- that the natural world is full of marvel and mystery;
- to think critically about religious ideas and ethical decisions; and
- to work for peace, social justice, and eco-justice in our world.
