We provide children, youth, young adults, and adults consistent and continual opportunities to explore, reflect, and learn in a nurturing spiritual community.
Our 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 beyond the superficial.
Spiritual growth – feeling a connection with the sacred within, among, and beyond us.
Parents and guardians, please register children and youth for religious education programming.
We ask families to register their children for religious education. This is essential to our programming and ensures that care providers receive information about classes, weekly emails, and timely updates.
For information about scholarships contact Reverend Stephen Furrer.
