Religious Education Classes

Our religious education classes offer young people up to age 18 the opportunity to explore and develop their own spirituality. Sunday morning classes focus on our UU principles, ethical decision-making, Judeo-Christian heritage, world religions, social justice, science, the environment and other topics related to the world our youth inhabit.

Classes are taught by a cooperative of caring volunteer teachers and assistants, with one of each in every classroom during the lesson. Our religious education program is facilitated by our Director of Religious Education, Chris Johns.

From late June through mid-September we have a Summer RE program. During Summer RE there will be nursery for babies and pre-k, a kindergarten through 2nd grade class, and a 3rd through 6th grade class. (This refers to the grade just completed.)  All classes will meet from 11:00-12:00 during the summer service, therefore those in 6th grade and below will go directly to their classrooms rather than beginning the morning in the service. The 7th through 12th graders are invited to enjoy the services during the summer. Volunteers for the nursery and for teaching classes are still needed. If you can help, please contact Cathy McNichols, coordinator of the Summer RE program.

Beginning January 5, 2014, we will return to one service on Sunday mornings at 10:30.The new RE schedule for fall will be as follows:

10:30 a.m.
Nursery (ages 0-2)
Pre K/K (ages 3 – 5)
Multi-Age Elementary (grades 1 – 5)
Middle School (grades 6 – 8)
High School (grades 9 – 12)
