Religious Education at UUCLV

One of the foundational ministries of the UUCLV is our Religious Education Program for Children and Youth. Congregants covenant with one another to nurture a sense of joy and wonder as we grow together as Unitarian Universalists in a multi-faith world. We commit to providing an experience that fulfills the spiritual needs of participants, is developmentally appropriate, and fosters connections between individuals regardless of age.

Sunday Morning Schedule

    As a congregation of many ages, adults and children begin Worship together at 10:30 on Sunday mornings.  The children are then invited to the front of the sanctuary for the Children's Moment.  On Multigenerational Sundays, children return to their pews.  On Sundays when classes are held, the children and their adult leaders leave for their classrooms in the RE wing. We ask that you fill out the  Registration and Permission Form ahead of time so that our teachers know the child's name, any pertinent information about him/her and your contact information.

    Sanctuary Worship ends at approximately 11:30. Adults have a few moments for coffee and conversation in the Community Room before RE dismisses at 11:45. Parents of younger children pick up their children directly from their classrooms. Our youth join their [arent/guardian in the community room.

    

    On Festival Sundays, children in Pre-K through 6th grade go directly to the Festival at 10:30. 


    The Nursery provides loving care and supervision for children ages 6 months through 5 years of age from 10:00- 11:45 am.  RE Classes are available for children age 4 and up. Contact Jansen Wendell (lec@uuclvpa.org)
