About Our Children's Ministry

We strive to create a safe and nurturing community here for children and youth of all ages and abilities, and to affirm the value of each individual while we also encourage a shared sense of responsibility to the community. Our curricula draw on many sources of wisdom; our Jewish and Christian heritage and all world religions, humanist and scientific understandings, the traditions of earth-centered religions, and each individual's own direct spiritual experience of awe and wonder.

In each of our classes, we highlight Unitarian Universalist principles to strengthen our children’s understanding of our own living tradition and foster a sense of shared identity.  We also offer opportunities for service and social action that express our values and make a difference in the world.

Children's Religious Education classes meet on Sunday mornings during adult services.  We begin in worship as a whole community for the first fifteen minutes, then dismiss the children to class.  Children also attend the full congregational worship several times per year. One a month, children gather for a child-friendly worship service in our children's chapel.
