What We Offer Through the Lifespan

We provide children, youth, young adults, and adults an opportunity to explore, reflect, and learn in a nurturing spiritual community. Unitarian Universalist religious education programs offer all ages, inspiring:

  • Ethical growth – internalizing enduring values like justice, equity, and compassion, and gaining tools to act on them in everyday life.
  • Social growth – connecting with peers and people of all ages on a deeper level. Finding acceptance among people who see beyond the superficial.
  • Spiritual growth – feeling a connection with the sacred within, among, and beyond us.

Religious education (RE) programs include more than classes. In the past on Sunday you might find the preschoolers singing songs about kindness, the 2nd graders engaging with a story about loss and bereavement, the 5th graders talking with a Muslim couple about Islam, the 7th graders learning about responsibility in a lesson from our progressive sexuality education program, and the high-school youth raising money for the local homeless shelter. Many programs did incorporate social justice activities, worship opportunities, service trips, fellowship, and fun. We want to grow our programs so that we can do all those things. We need YOUR help. The video above is a service that highlighted our newly restarted RE program. If you would like to register your kids fill out the form here (Click the Blue Text)

The lead teachers right now are, Scott Redman and Staci Kopcha, they are long time, beloved teachers. We are so lucky to have them back!

Parents and other members of the congregation often lead RE, too. Teaching can be a very fulfilling way to deepen one’s own faith. If you are interested in volunteering please fill out this background check form (Click the Blue text) and email it to admin@tahomauu.com.

The children and youth religious exploration programs are typically offered on Sunday mornings, while the adult programs are usually offered on afternoons or evenings.
