“The Great end in religious instruction is not to stamp our minds upon the young, but to stir up their own; not to make them see with our eyes, but to look inquiringly and steadily with their own; not to give them a definite amount of knowledge, but to inspire a fervent love of truth... In a word, the great end is to awake the soul, to excite and cherish spiritual life.”

- William Ellery Channing

General Information

Here at Unity Church, it is our goal that each young person receives a structured liberal religious education. Our Religious Education program aims to:

  • Shape the Heart
  • Nourish Character
  • Liberate the Spirit
  • Affirm the wondrous potential of each unique and precious child

The children are included in the first part of the service with the entire congregation on Sunday mornings.  After a sharing time with our children early in the service, church school meets until the service is over, approximately from 10:45 am to 11:30 am.

Children's Chapel is offered once a month. On those Sundays, children meet in the Chaffin Room at 10:30 am.  Dates for Children's Chapel are announced in all church publications.

Nursery Care is provided for children under three from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m.

Cooperative Church School
Our church school is a cooperative one.  Adults are actively involved as teachers and rehearsal leaders, or they make an equivalent commitment to the program.

When children see their parents actively and enthusiastically involved in the church school, they become more actively involved themselves. We strongly urge both fathers and mothers to participate. Each year, nearly 40 people are needed to act as teachers, assistants, rehearsal leaders, and to provide other kinds of help.

Remember, there is no "they."  "We" must be available to our children. We hope you will consider the church school one of your priorities.

Our Program
At Unity Church, each child can expect to be exposed to the following themes:

  • Unitarian Universalist History and Identity
  • Our Judeo-Christian Heritage
  • World Religions
  • Peace and Social Justice

We explore these themes through formal curricula in the fall, through play rehearsal and performance in the winter, and through special events, mini-courses and activities in the spring.
