What is Religious Education?
Religious Education is a collaborative process that extends across the lifespan, a cooperative venture involving children, youth and adults, supported by staff and dedicated volunteers in our UUSS community.
Our Religious Education Program seeks to impart our Unitarian Universalist principles and heritage to all who are involved in our program so they may live responsibly, compassionately, and intentionally in a complex world.

A Message about Religious Education from Our Minister
A church is a learning community. At its best, it is a nurturing and challenging place in which children, youth and adults create the foundation to live their values in the world. Religious Education is a central part of our Unitarian Universalist faith tradition, supporting our commitment to open-minded inquiry, reason and spirituality.
