Lifespan Religious Education
Parents and caregivers choose Unitarian Universalist congregations for their child’s religious education because of the community dynamic that helps raise children to become kind, respectful, fair-minded, caring – but strong enough to side with love and fight for justice. Participation in UUCW’s religious education programs is supplemented by worship, social justice work and multi-generational gatherings that re inforce the lessons taught at home. We nurture truth-seeking, spirituality and progressive moral values that will continue to shape and support our children as they grow.
In the interest of everyone’s health and safety, in-person Sunday school classes are canceled until further notice. The Religious Education Director continues to send periodic suggestions for spiritual enrichment at home to parents through the monthly newsletter and other sources and we look forward to the time when we can be together (in-person) again.
Youths in the 5th – 8th grades are welcome to join our Youth Group that meets via Zoom on Sundays at 11:30 am. UUA curriculum, “Principled Music” keeps our discussions lively with many opportunities to explore music and its many messages. Current events, informed by history and perceived through Unitarian Universalist values, is central to our meetings as we learn about our own communities and the social justice actions that promote positive change. Please contact Leslie O’Connor, firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about this exciting program for youth.
Learning never ends, so UUCWNC has a vibrant education program for adult members and friends. Learning about UU history, reading the Bible through a UU lens, poetry reading, book groups and earth-based spirituality are some of the educational opportunities that we provide. Please see a current Beacon newsletter for a calendar of events and program contact details.
