Children and Youth Religious Education
We offer Religious Education classes for K-12 children and youth throughout the school year. Every family is encouraged to register so we have important information about your child and can best serve their needs. Click the link below to register your family.
Sunday class times: Each Sunday, classes for children and youth take place during the Sunday service (11-12:15). K-5th grade children always join their family in the service at 11 and leave for their classes after the story. 6-12th grade youth begin their classes at 11, downstairs in the RE Commons.
Read about our class offerings for different age groups below:
Kindergarten-1st grade and 2nd-3rd grade children do Spirit Play: a Montessori-based curriculum that invites children to explore wisdom stories and learn through play.
4th-5th grade children will work with a “Soul Matters” curriculum which uses stories, experience-based learning activities, mindfulness practices, games, craft ideas, skits, videos, and more to explore our shared Unitarian Universalist values.
Middle School youth this year will explore a “Crossing Paths” curriculum, which invites our youth to deepen and clarify their Unitarian Universalist identity while exploring neighboring faith traditions.
High School youth this year will participate in a new coming of age program, “Becoming,” which supports youth as they explore, develop and articulate their personal values and faith identity.
