Children begin to understand Unitarian Universalist (UU) principles, both in theory and practice, through our age-appropriate religious exploration classes. UU Principles for Children

During each Sunday's class, children explore religious and spiritual themes and spend time together to build community. Teachers help each child develop a personal search for truth and meaning through storytelling, art, music, drama, dance, writing, sharing, and play. Several times throughout the church year, special worship services are created by and for our children.

We include some ceremony, some singing, a bit of dancing, a lot of stories, and always healthy snacks every Sunday morning! More...
