Who We Are
The Religious Education program (RE) at Valley Unitarian Universalist Congregation focuses on enriching the lives of the congregation through educational and experiential activities and classes for people of every age. The RE program is a vital force in congregational life, and everyone is encouraged to participate.
Our purpose is to create and sustain a program of spiritual and personal exploration and learning that will both support the mission of the church and enhance the life of adults and children in our congregation.
What We Do
The program lifts up Unitarian Universalist values and enhances the community experience by providing various Unitarian Universalist-based courses with other classes or activities determined and scheduled as interest, time and resources permit.
The Three Pillars of our Sunday morning Religious Education Program for children and youth are:
- Unitarian Universalist history and identity
- Christian and Jewish history, tradition and ritual
- World Faith Communities, tradition and ritual
Each year one of these three pillars is the focus of all of the religious education programs. Children and youth that grow with our program will encounter each of these pillars several times and through the various stages of chronological, emotional and spiritual development. 2013-14 Pillar is Christian and Jewish history, tradition, and ritual.
