What We Offer Through the Lifespan
We provide children, youth, young adults, and adults an opportunity to explore, reflect, and learn in a nurturing spiritual community. Unitarian Universalist religious exploration programs are offered for 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.
Religious exploration programs include more than classes. On a Sunday you might find the younger children engaging with a story about loss and bereavement, the older children building a model of “our world”, or all of the children working together planting a keyhole garden. Many programs incorporate social justice activities, worship opportunities, service trips, fellowship, and fun.
Our parents and other members of the congregation lead our congregations’ lifespan programs. Teaching can be a very fulfilling way to deepen one’s own faith.
Children’s religious education programs are typically offered on Sunday mornings, and adult programs are usually offered on afternoons or evenings.
