Welcome to religious education at UUCCN. Here, we offer your child the chance to grow and learn in a classroom community. While parents are attending the adult Sunday service, the children will be in a warm, friendly environment among their peers, where they are encouraged to explore important religious questions. Our teachers are trained volunteers from our congregation. The Religious Education Committee works very hard to choose curricula appropriate for each age group. We select material from various sources that will help our young people understand Unitarian Universalism. Our focus for the coming year is Unitarian Universalist Principles, Values, and History. The congregational theme this year is Lean On Me! Working together, we help each other learn and create. We will continue to address the seven principles of our faith especially during Worship Circle (Children’s Worship) as we discover how to bring with us the “tools” of our faith into the world. This theme will be a common thread woven into a variety of lessons, events and social action activities. We are here to nurture and support your child’s religious experience however we need your help in order for your child to reap the maximum benefits from the educational and social opportunities we provide. It is essential for your child attend Sunday school in a regular and timely manner. We also encourage you to take note of what your child is learning and “bring” it home. We invite you to participate in family events offered by the RE committee and UUCCN (please note Special Events calendar in the RE brochure). We are a community that is here to support your child and we could use your help in a variety of ways. Please feel free to share your gifts with us and the children.
We welcome you to a new beginning!
