Exploring Beliefs. Nurturing Spirits.
For Unitarian Universalists, religious education includes all of the ways that children, teens and adults grow toward their potential as compassionate, ethical and fulfilled human beings. Our Religious Education (RE) program is grounded in our Unitarian Universalist principles and sources, and in our relationships with one another.
Children’s Religious Education is about much more than learning. It’s about growing and the wonder of being alive! First Unitarian Church provides an environment where the spirit of each child will grow and they can confidently explore life’s most puzzling questions. Above all, we’re committed to providing a program that encourages young people to learn and respect what is religious about their own lives.
Your family is invited to join in the exploration and celebration.

Annual Religious Education Survey: this survey allows RE leadership to evaluate the program and improve it to meet the needs of our families and work towards the congregation’s Ends. Anyone who has participated in an RE program or event this year, including parents, students, volunteers, and more, is invited to share their feedback in this brief survey.
