Religious Education:

Unitarian Universalists value a “free and responsible search for truth and meaning”. Our Religious Education program provides a framework for our children as they begin their path of lifespan faith development. Religious Education classes for children include a wide range of religious and philosophical traditions, and integrate a variety of learning styles.  We welcome all families and children, infants through 12th grade.
