Finding the right religious education program for your child can seem daunting to many parents. Often, parents are seeking a community of shared values, and a way to help children form their own religious beliefs.
The Children’s Religious Education program at UUC includes classes on our Judeo-Christian heritage, other world religions, our Unitarian Universalist identity, and social action / justice. We do not teach children what to believe, but help them to discover and travel their own personal paths.
Nursery care is offered for infants and toddlers who have not reached their third birthday by September 1st. Nursery involves play and storytelling in a warm, nurturing atmosphere. Our Nursery is supervised by experienced, paid caregivers.
Religious Education Classes
RE Classes are available for preschool through grade 8 students. Our RE program seeks to encourage spiritual growth; provide religious literacy; encourage a social conscience; and help our children to develop their own UU identity. Our curriculum reflects our Jewish/Christian heritage; the religions of the world; social responsibility; concepts of God; and a UU identity. Classes are available for:
Coming of Age

Requires registration by September 1 and a commitment to attend all year. Learn more.
