We welcome all ages in our worship services and one of the ways we nurture community and Unitarian Universalist identity is by worshiping together. The children's area in the sanctuary offers a space for children to be comfortable in worship while feeling part of the community while learning the words, music and rituals of our faith.
Religion is about understanding our connectedness. When you suffer, I suffer. Religion is about binding us together to take heartful and inspired action to make the world better.

Religious Exploration at FUSW
The Religious Education Program at First Unitarian provides an extraordinary spiritual, intellectual, educational, and social experience for the children and youth in our congregation. Creating a safe and nurturing environment in which they feel free to learn together, develop their own theology, build community, and work for a better world with caring staff and volunteers. We also support parents and caregivers in their role as the primary religious educators of their children.
Our program year begins in September and concludes in June. Please visit us anytime. Religious Education classes coincide with the 10:30am worship service. Children begin in the sanctuary and participate in the first part of the worship service. About once a month, children remain to worship with their family for the whole hour. Other Sundays, the congregation sings children and youth to their classes where they participate in age-appropriate educational experiences. Children's classes and youth group are always staffed with at least two adults, as outlined in our Safe and Sacred Policy. At the end of classes, children and youth join the adults at the coffee service.
