Religious Education for Children & Youth

Welcome to our program of religious education for young people. You and your family are invited to join an exciting journey of questioning, searching, challenging and wondering about the meaning of life with all its mysteries, great and small.

Our Religious Education Program provides the opportunity for the deeper meanings of life to be explored and experienced in a safe, loving and fun community. We offer a basis for spiritual development, which augments the religious growth and learning each family is engaged in at home. The goal of our program is to give each young person a firm ground of belief, rooted in our Unitarian Universalist principles, from which they can stretch and grow, question and explore.

Together as a religious community we learn love of one another and ourselves, to search for truth with an open mind, and to work to make the world a better place.

We invite you to participate fully in this journey, this adventure of life.

Tapestry is a cooperative, volunteer-led Religious Education program. Its success depends on the talents and energy of our congregation. We kindly request a donation to help cover the cost of supplies. The suggested donation is $60/child or $85/family.

Virtual Religious Education

Weekday Story Time

Every Tuesday and Thursday 11:30am Story Time is an opportunity for us to get together for a few minutes to say hi and listen to a quick story from a picture book. The gathering lasts for about 10 minutes or so depending on the story and any possible discussion we have afterwards.

Sunday RE Classes

Every Sunday 10am (prek-1st Grade) and 11am (2nd-5th Grade) Similar to our weekday story times on Sundays we generally read a story then have some discussion based on the story and how it relates to our UU principles. We then usually do some sort of craft or activity so I always recommend have some art supplies nearby and ready. A piece of paper and a pencil is enough, but any crayons, markers, colored pencils, etc, would be appropriate as well. These usually last about 30 or 40 minutes depending on discussion and craft time.

All meetings are online. See the weekly Order of Service or email Rob at dre@tapestryuu.org for the link.
