Religious Education Classes

Religious education (RE) classes at UUCM are child centered. Our curriculum works to develop awareness of the powers within the self as well as those that impinge upon us. While our religious education does not dictate specific doctrinal beliefs, children are encouraged to identify their personal beliefs with the understanding that it matters what we believe. Through our RE classes, students are allowed to discover the process of UU religion at their own pace. Becoming skilled with that process offers students tools for relating to the world. Key elements of UU religious education are credo and covenant. The credo is the development of personal beliefs. Covenant is our promise, and it sets our relationships with each other and our world as a basis for religious life.

RE classes are held each Sunday, September through mid June, unless a multigenerational service or multiage activity is planned. Volunteer teachers in our RE program participate in a shared ministry that is cooperatively provided by parents and non-parents alike.
