The great end in religious instruction is not to stamp our minds upon the young, but to stir up their own.                                                                  -- William Ellery Channing

Many families find UUI when they are looking for a church home that will celebrate them for who they are and support them through the joys and sorrows of life.  

At UUI we are proud to offer a religious education program that encourages children to grow into the unique individuals they are.

In addition to learning about the Unitarian Universalist faith tradition, our program is designed to inspire our children and youth to embark on a life-long search for what is true for them, to learn about world religions, acquire the knowledge they need for making a difference in the world, and learn a sense of responsibility for others and for the Earth. We want to equip them with resources that will allow them to face the challenges of life with compassion and integrity and feel they are part of something larger than themselves.  

We are excited and honored to accompany your child on this important part of their journey as they explore the big questions in life.

We hope you will join us this Sunday!
