UUCSR is a family-friendly congregation that values faith formation for children and youth. With this in mind, we offer a variety of religious education experiences.
Children and youth begin each worship service in the Sanctuary with their families and are then led to the Religious Education wing of the building for age-appropriate faith exploration after the Time for All Ages.
Children and youth are also welcome to stay in the Sanctuary for worship services.
Summer Religious Education Makerspace for ages 6-13
The Summer RE Makerspace provides a wonderful combination of independent, child-driven creativity and design with our Seven Unitarian Universalist Principles.
We begin each session by lighting a chalice and doing a quick check-in. Then, children have access to a variety of materials to create art, tools and other creations that demonstrate UU beliefs.
The RE Makerspace is supervised by the Director of Religious Education, childcare staff, and adult volunteer “guides” who help to facilitate the making process.
Make-and-Play is an opportunity for preschool-age children to enjoy open-ended building play and guided crafts in a relaxed atmosphere. Children participate in a chalice lighting activity at the end of their play to reinforce UU traditions and a sense of belonging.
Infant Care for Babies and Toddlers
Infants and toddlers are lovingly cared for by experienced childcare providers. Our nursery provides a safe and friendly environment for exploration and play. With a range of developmental stages in the group our staff provides a flexible, loving, and child centered program.
Please note, from June 15-September 8, 2019, Children’s Religious Education classes will be held during the 10:00 am service as part of our congregation’s summer schedule.
