Religious Education Programs at the UUCOC

Ministry of Lifespan Religious Education

The Religious Education (RE) program at UUCOC embodies the principles of Lifespan RE.

The Religious Education Program for Children and Youth takes place in the Hope Building on Sunday mornings from 11:15 a.m. to noon.

The integration of adult, youth and children's themes each week is meant to encourage dialogue between parents/guardians and their children outside of our Sunday morning gathering.

Worship (Ministry of Word) and Religious Education (Ministry of Teaching) are equally valued as curriculum for our children. Children and youth remain in the service each Sunday, learning UU principles and practices through participation in the rituals, stories, music and prayers of worship.

Religious Education is a COOPERATIVE process!

Parents: Besides engaging in our RE program at church, they continue a child’s religious education where it matters most — in the home.

Congregation: Each person who attends our church is a religious educator.

Teachers: They provide a safe and loving environment in which our children are encouraged to grow.
