Why Liberal Religious Education
We provide children, youth, young adults, and adults an opportunity to explore, reflect, and learn in a nurturing spiritual community. Unitarian Universalist religious education programs offer all ages, inspiring:
- Ethical growth – internalizing enduring values like justice, equity, and compassion, and gaining tools to act on them in everyday life.
- Social growth – connecting with peers and people of all ages on a deeper level. Finding acceptance among people who see beyond the superficial.
- Spiritual growth – feeling a connection with the sacred within, among, and beyond us.
We invite you to explore these pages and contact our religious educator to get connected.
Aisha Hauser, Director of Lifelong Learning for general information.
Felice Nightengale, RE Assistant for registration.
Visitors and guests are welcome to attend Religious Exploration Classes on a drop-in basis. On the third visit we request that the family registers their child for class. The only exceptions to this policy are the Our Whole Lives (OWL) and Coming of Age classes, these programs are not open to drop-in attendees but require pre-registration to participate.
