Children’s RE

Religious Education at First U.U. offers  a curriculum-based Pre-K through grade 12 program for children, and adult education classes for members. The seven Unitarian Universalist principles, called Rainbow Principles, and the sources of our beliefs are the foundation of student learning.

Adult Religious Education
Unitarian Universalists do not consider revelation to be sealed, therefore, we are life-long learners on our faith journeys.  There are many choices for continued learning here! Learn how you can expand your horizons by getting involved.

Multigenerational Programs
In addition to Sunday morning religious education classes the church offers a number of multigenerational services throughout the year. These allow our entire congregation to come together – so that we might learn from and enjoy one another’s company in worship.
