What We Offer through the Lifespan
We provide an opportunity to explore, reflect, and learn in a nurturing spiritual community. Unitarian Universalist religious education programs offer all ages, inspiring:
* Ethical growth – internalizing enduring values like justice, equity, and compassion, and gaining tools to act on them in everyday life.
* Social growth – connecting with peers and people of all ages on a deeper level. Finding acceptance among people who see beyond the superficial.
* Spiritual growth – feeling a connection with the sacred within, among, and beyond us.
We are a growing congregation and speakers at our sunday services come to us from a variety of backgrounds, often members of our own congregation. Teaching can be a very fulfilling way to deepen one’s own faith.
While our services welcome all ages, children’s religious education programs & childcare are typically offered on Sunday mornings, after the Story for All Ages, except during July & August Summer Song Series.
We invite you to learn more and get connected!
