Teaching Sunday School
One of the great experiences of life in a religious community is helping new generations discover themselves within their faith. Unitarian Universalist religious education is unique in exposing young people – not to a required creed or doctrine – but to a set of life principles and the full range of religious wisdom, from Christianity and Judaism (our early roots) to Hinduism, Islam, nature worship and other traditions.
Religious education culminates in a year in which high school students develop their own faith credos, and the Sunday worship service where these are presented is one of our most popular of the year. Year to year, our goal is not indoctrination but religious education, so that our youth can move into adulthood understanding issues of morality and faith, and prepared to act on their principles.
We encourage all members of our congregation to volunteer to each Sunday School, whether they are the parents of children currently in the program or are eager to contribute to an activity that helped shape their adult children or young friends. All teachers are vetted as part of our Safe Congregations policy. If you wish to volunteer as a teacher, contact our director of religious education.
