Children’s Programing

Values Without Doctrine

Parents 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.
Our programs engage the child’s body, spirit, curiosity, and imagi-nation through stories, games, art, drama, music, and more.

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 7 UU principles
  • World religions
  • Power of the elements for social action
  • Love as faith and as guide
We see it as our task to nurture children’s sense of spirituality not to indoctrinate.

“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.
