Children’s Religious Education Program

As part of the service, a children’s story is read, and then the children leave the service and go to their own space.

The children’s time together then starts with lighting their own chalice and sharing their joys and concerns.

This is followed by the day’s activities which may include crafts, singing, and learning about Unitarian values, and about other religious festivals and practices around the world.

Identifying the needs of our children’s spiritual development, and focusing upon giving our children a meaningful experience here at our “Capital” congregation, we endeavor to teach our children a free, open and non-dogmatic faith based upon the Seven Principles of Unitarian Universalism in their terms:

  • That each and ever person is valid in their own right
  • That all people need to be treated fairly and kindly
  • That we should accept one another and keep on learning together
  • That each person must be free to search for what is true and right in life
  • That all persons have a say about the things that concern them
  • To work for a peaceful, fair, and free world
  • To care for our planet Earth, the home we share with all living things
