Religious Education

UUCF offers a program for children and teens during the Sunday service. Our Religious Education Coordinator and volunteer staff engage children and youth in lessons centered around our values as Unitarian Universalists. We encourage children and teens to learn about the traditions and values of world religions in order to see the commonalities among us. Students are supported during their individual spiritual and philosophical journeys.

We recommend first time visitors arrive at least 15 minutes before the scheduled Sunday service to give your student time to settle in and get to know us before class begins. Children and teens are also welcome to join their adults in the meeting house for service if they choose.

Nursery care is available for young children. A comfort room, with a tv to view the service, is also available for caregivers who need a private place to tend to young children.

Preschool & elementary school

Younger students explore UU values and world religions through a variety of activities that engage both mind and body. We read stories, create art, play games, listen to music, and regularly enjoy our outdoor playscape.

Middle & high school

Older students learn to apply UU values and principles in their daily lives through leadership development, spiritual growth, and social action. Activities include discussion, films, games, art, drama, and social justice work.

Attending UUCF’s religious education program

After a few visits, we ask parents to register their children so we can get to know them better and communicate with caregivers. You can do so by contacting the Religious Education Coordinator.
