Sunday Religious Education Classes
At UUCC, we want our children and youth to feel part of a supportive and caring community as they freely explore the concept of religion, develop their own spiritual beliefs, and build relationships among their peers.
Most Sundays, children and youth join the adults in the Sanctuary for the first 15 minutes of the church service. This is an opportunity to experience several important moments: the lighting of the chalice, words of affirmation, and a song or two. Kids listen to a “Story for All Ages” then head to their religious education (RE) classes. On the way, they collect non-perishable food items brought by congregants for the local food pantry at Respond Now. Caregivers may take infants to the “Under 5s” room (nursery and preschool) at this time.
From time to time, we hold intergenerational services, which are specifically designed to interest and engage kids in kindergarten and older. They stay in the Sanctuary for the entire church service. Childcare is offered for infants and preschoolers.
