Ministry for Children and Families
United is a multigenerational community. Our children and youth are an integral part of us who we are and we are proud to offer a compelling and engaging religious education ministry. We believe in fostering an environment where our young people feel accepted for who they are, where they are encouraged ask questions and think deeply, where they learn about Unitarian Universalism and the world religions, and can develop their own spiritual paths and ideas.
Our children begin each Sunday in worship, where we sing, greet each other and begin centering for worship. Following a story for all ages, children are led to our religious education classes. This year we are learning and exploring other world religions as well as our own Unitarian Universalist principles.
If you have any questions or would like to register your child in our program, we hope you'll be in touch with our Church office at firstname.lastname@example.org. A registration form is required for all children taking part in any of our activities, Religious Education, Youth Group or childcare. We hope to see you and your family soon!
Childcare is available for most services. Please contact the office at email@example.com for more information.
SUMMER SPIRIT YOUTH PROGRAM
United UUC is excited to announce Summer Spirit, a new ecologically based summer program for youths aged 6-18. Under the guidance of our Director of Religious Education, Dennis Reynolds, kids will be able to understand the world around them and their place within it. They will be able to connect the ecological crisis to the crisis of poverty, create their own strategies to be more ecologically focused in their own lives and focus their spiritually through an Ecological lens.
See below for a curriculum. Programs start at 1pm with the exception of June 19 when we will meet at United at 12:30pm.
Registration is required. Please download a copy of the form here.
