Values Without Doctrine
seeking a religious education program are often looking for a community
of shared values in which to raise their children. These values are the
most important things we teach, but we also give children building
blocks to form their own beliefs.
We celebrate all cultures and family structures. You will be welcome here!
What kinds of things will my child learn in UU Sunday school?
UU Principles Taught to Children:
1. Each and every person is important.
2. All people should be treated fairly and kindly.
3. We should accept one another and keep on learning together.
4. Each person must be free to search for what is true and right in life.
5. All persons should have a vote on things that concern them.
6. We should work for a peaceful, fair and free world.
7. We should care for our planet, the home we share with all living things.
We use a variety of Unitarian Universalist curricula that explore values, beliefs, and spiritual practices, including:
“The great end of religious instruction is not to stamp our minds irresistibly upon the young, but to stir up their own.” ~Rev. William Ellery Channing
What to Expect on Sundays
Families begin the service together for 10-15 minutes which includes lighting the chalice, sharing joys and concerns and a story for all ages.
Children then leave for an educational program (2nd and 4th Sundays, ages 5+) or child care (other Sundays and ages 0-4).
All ages gather for snacks and conversation at 11:00.
While some children enjoy wearing their “Sunday best,” comfortable, washable school clothing is recommended.
2nd and 4th Sundays have children’s programing All other Sundays have child care.
