9:15 Religious Education Classes

Preschool

Children spend their Sunday morning in a  Unitarian Universalist Montessori-influenced learning environment called Spirit Play. Here they creatively engage the story of the human family, stirring their curiosity and creating space to explore their own thinking, learning and responses to the world.

Sacred Spaces (K-5th Graders)

From September through June, our spiritual theme-based learning ministry encourages each participant to teach and reach and create and make and ask and query and share and serve. All children cycle through each learning perspective: create, explore; act and practice, pausing when needed to reflect.

Middle School (6th, 7th, and Non-OWL 8th Graders)

Our sixth and seventh graders meet together and alternate between two curricula, “Amazing Grace” which is a UU values based curriculum and “Heeding the Call: Qualities of a Justice Maker” which focuses on social justice and our faith.

Our Whole Lives (OWL) (8th and 9th Graders)

This curriculum teaches 8th grade participants to make informed and responsible decisions about their sexual health and behavior. It equips participants with accurate, age-appropriate information in: sexuality, sex, sensuality, anatomy, friendships, dating, communication, health care and more.

High School Youth Group

Our high school youth group Sunday morning time is youth-directed and adult assisted.
