6th grade thru High School
We welcome all families who are looking for a spiritual home.
Students will use Soul Matters themes to explore the same questions we explore as a church community with an age-appropriate curriculum. The Soul Matters Sharing Circle is a network of Unitarian Universalist congregations who follow the same monthly themes; the classes our students enjoy reflect the same themes being experienced by the adults in our congregation. These students have the opportunity to work with a wide variety of subjects within our Sunday morning classes. Subjects can include all UU sources, Unitarian-Universalism, Community activism, Religious Symbolism, current events, climate change, and many more.
Youth Groups 6-8 and 9-12:
Classes meet Sundays at 11:45.
Youth Groups play with and discuss our Soul Matters monthly themes. Middle and High School Youth groups may meet together as determined by theme and activity.
When we resume in-person classes:
A member of the Religious Education Committee will gladly take you on a tour of the classrooms as well as answer any questions you may have.
On Sundays when Religious Education is in session, our students join their families for the beginning of the Worship Service in the sanctuary at 10:45. Children will be invited to their classes with a song, at which point they will adjourn to their classrooms for their Soul Matters activities from 11-12pm.
Covid update for OWL:
OWL classes will resume when our congregation resumes meeting in person.
