Life Span Faith Development
As a faith that expects its members to engage in a life-long search for their
own religious and spiritual truth, Unitarian Universalism has always placed
great emphasis on the importance of religious education for people of all ages.
UU religious education attempts to provide an intellectual and spiritual
community that will encourage and assist both children and adults to ask and
answer their own religious questions in ways which are personally meaningful to
them. The following religious education opportunities are available on Sunday
mornings this year in these classes, all named after famous Unitarian Universalists:
Beatrix Potter Class
For babies and toddlers during the 11:15 a.m. worship service.
Dr. Seuss Class
For children in pre-school through 6th grade. These children attend the first
20 to 30 minutes of the 11:15 a.m. worship service with their families, then go
to their RE class after the Children’s Sermon. Since children's schedules in the
summer are often interrupted by vacations, camps, visits to relatives, etc., our
summer program will consist of crafts, games, stories, movies and other
activities that will still be enjoyable for children despite any irregular
Our topics this year for adults and teens will include Book Two of Building Your Own Theology and The Great Courses video lectures. We will switch back and forth from sessions with BYOT including email readings prior to meeting followed by discussion during class, and video presentations from Great Courses followed by discussion. The video lectures may include "Cultural Literacy for Religion: Everything the Well-Educated Person Should Know", "Emerson, Thoreau, and the Transcendentalist Movement" and "Long Strange Trip: A Journey Through Two thousand years of Unitarian Universalist History".
The lessons will begin promptly at 10 a.m. and finish at 10:55. Participants are welcome to stay later to continue discussion. Coffee is provided. Come and bring a friend.
