Children’s Religious Education
We offer religious education (RE) for pre-school through 12th grade during Sunday services. Children attend the first 15 minutes of the service with their families. After the children’s story, the children leave the sanctuary to attend religious education classes.
We have excellent nursery care at both services for children under 3 years old. If you prefer, you may take your infant in to the service with you or, if the child becomes fussy, to sit in the foyer, where the service is broadcast.
Religious Education classes end at 10:15am or 12:15pm. This gives parents about 15 minutes to have a cup of coffee and chat downstairs in the Crossings Room after services. We ask that you not pick up your child early because it is disruptive to the rest of the class.
If you are new to UUCWC, you are welcome to attend RE classes with your child until both you and your children feel comfortable. Your children are also welcome to attend the whole service with you.
Children may wear anything they want, but most come prepared to sit on the floor. RE classes may paint, use glue, or go outside on Sunday mornings.
During the months of June through August there is only one service at 10:00am. Childcare is offered to children from birth through age 4. We have one religious education class for all children ages 5-11 and we use a summer curriculum.
