Children and Youth
Due to guidance from the Unitarian Universalist Association as well as our local health department, we have suspended all at-church Religious Education programs through December. Stay tuned for online ways to connect and grow in spirit!
Welcome from Director of Religious Education Katy Carpman
Children and youth at Emerson know that they are unique and wonderful and LOVED. Our members have a wide range of backgrounds and beliefs, and we know we all can learn from one another.
We proudly provide liberal religious education, creating opportunities for our children and youth to ask questions, hear stories, and be joyful with each other. We teach the values and stories of many religions—as well as our own unique heritage—and celebrate each person’s gifts as important to our world.
We look forward to meeting you!
So we can best prepare for all families, please take a few minutes to register for our program!
Our Cooperative Program
Every year volunteers contribute over 2000 hours to our Sunday School program.
We ask all guardians* to contribute their time as they are able—as teachers, assistants, and playground helpers, and organizing special events and ongoing projects.
Learn more about your opportunities, sign up online, or stop by the RE Office (Room 102) to chat with Katy and learn more.
*Parenthood is NOT a requirement to volunteer! We joyfully welcome all ages and stages!
Children & Youth Program Vision and Mission
Our youth grow up together in a community of joy and wonder, building Unitarian Universalist identities that draw on diverse faith traditions and take individual and collective action to help others.
We create an environment encouraging and nurturing self respect, community development, comprehensive religious literacy, spiritual growth, and faith in action.
