Families & Faith Development, Family Programs

Unitarian Universalism affirms all families and helps them live more resilient, connected, and joyful lives.

Our programs for all ages are built on this vision:

All people are lovable beings of infinite worth, imbued with powers of the soul. We are obligated to use our gifts, talents, and potentials in the service of life.

Our sexuality education programs for children, youth, and adults are positive, holistic, inclusive, and founded on our values.

Faith Development with Children

Religious education can help us grow in faith. Yet faith development happens elsewhere, too...especially at home. Parents and caregivers are our children's primary religious educators. Along with the explanations and advice we give children, every day we act out our values and beliefs and model a way of living that children notice and copy. In Unitarian Universalism. we support one another to discover and rediscover a seeking, active faith in the context of real life. We help parents talk with children about difficult topics and connect with the soul of parenting.

  • Tapestry of Faith 
    The first, ever online collection of lifespan curricula for our congregations invites seekers as well as members to engage in faith study at home. Each religious education (RE) program includes stories, activities, worship, and social action ideas to nurture our growth in ethics, spirit, and faith. Parents can go online and read the Tapestry of Faith stories and activities their children experience in RE programs. Taking It Home and Find Out More sections help you explore further.
  • Family Pages in UU World 
    Four times a year, the pull-out section of UU World magazine presents a timely theme through stories, activities, and thoughtful reflection, often drawn from Unitarian Universalism's Tapestry of Faith lifespan curricula. The Family pages offer inspiration and ideas for parents to share with children, elders to share with grandchildren, and UUs and seekers of all ages to explore.
