Religious Education for All: Sunday morning programming
Our Sunday mornings feature an hour of religious education programs for children, youth, and adults, beginning at 9:30 a.m. Children’s religious education programming is offered in two classes: Sprouts (Pre-K and Kindergarten), and Explorers (1st-5th Grade). Middle and high schoolers are invited to join the Youth Group. And adult programming is offered in two tracks (one class per track): Social Justice and Spirituality/Religion.
RE for All begins on the first day of the church year in September and concludes on the last day of the church year — just before Sunday services move to the Enoch Pratt Parish Hall. Each year, we offer a new set of programming. See pages for individual ages and programs for more information.
Adult programs may be held in the evenings or on a weekend. Those special offerings are included in our church calendar.
In addition, we offer Our Whole Lives (comprehensive sexuality education) for 7th-9th graders and 10th-12th graders, on alternating years. Parents of middle schoolers can request a Coming of Age program for their children.
Through our Religious Education Program, we provide children, youth, and adults an opportunity to explore, reflect, and learn in a nurturing spiritual community. Unitarian Universalist religious education programs have something to offer all ages, and we aim to inspire:
- Ethical growth – internalizing enduring values like justice, equity, and compassion, and gaining tools to act on them in everyday life.
- Social growth – connecting with peers and people of all ages on a deeper level. Finding acceptance among people who see beyond the superficial.
- Spiritual growth – feeling a connection with the sacred within, among, and beyond us.
Our religious educator and minister lead many of our congregation’s religious education programs. Parents and other members of the congregation often lead them, too. Teaching can be a very fulfilling way to deepen one’s own faith.
