At Community Church, we believe that religious education (RE) is a lifelong process of exploration, learning, and growth. We offer opportunities for children, youth, and adults to learn about Unitarian Universalism, explore their own spirituality, and find ways to put their beliefs into action. If you have any questions about our program, or if you wish to discuss your family’s needs with us, please email Brennan Hadden at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Parents! Please take a couple of minutes to fill out this online form to register your kids for our RE program. Registration helps us to ensure that we have the right volunteers, that they have the information they need (like allergies), and that we know who the responsible adults for each child are. Thanks for your time!

Our Mission Statement
As religious educators, we strive to accomplish the following goals for the children in our community:
- To enhance self-awareness in an environment in which each person feels supported
- To promote an understanding of Unitarian Universalist religious heritage, principles, and values, as well as familiarity with other religions of the world
- To provide a tolerant, open environment in which to explore religious education, growth, moral development, and experiences of tradition and ritual
- To enhance the development of tools with which to deepen one’s spiritual life
- To provide opportunities for our church community to demonstrate Unitarian Universalist principles in action by contributing to the larger community in which we live
- To promote the development of our congregation, youth, and adults, into a joyful, loving community that offers routine and crisis support for all its members.
Religious Education Classes for Children
We offer age-appropriate religious education every Sunday morning. Most mornings, children and youth begin the worship hour at 10:30am in the sanctuary with their family. Following the children’s benediction, they go to their classrooms for classes. Our lessons are chosen to complement the monthly theme used in the worship services. We draw from all six of our sources: children’s natural sense of wonder and awe, Christian and Jewish heritage, world religions, words of prophetic individuals, science and reason, and earth-based religions.
Want to get involved?
Many of our parents and other members of the congregation volunteer as teachers and classroom helpers, and/or serve on the RE Board. To find out what opportunities are available, please email Brennan Hadden at email@example.com.
