Lifespan Religious Education
The Piedmont UU Church provides opportunity for learning for people of all ages to help explore our faith, to build our own theology, and to help each of us find our path.
Religious Education for Children & Youth
Children and Youth (Teens) participate in the beginning of the worship service with their families. Approximately ten minutes into the service, after the Time for All Ages (a time with a story, song, or activity that highlights a shared learning topic for everyone), the children and youth join their group leads in a separate room for an age-appropriate religious education or spiritual exploration session. Children are picked up by a parent or guardian ten minutes after the service is over.
Group leads are comprised of volunteers and staff who follow a Unitarian Universalist faith development program along with customized sessions based on the needs and interest of the youth. Volunteers and staff who spend time with our youth abide by our congregation’s Safe Congregation Policy and are background checked.
On Multi-generational (Multi-gen) Sundays, children, teens, and adults worship together for the entire service. Multi-gen Sundays often center on a Unitarian Universalist ceremony, a faith-based or spiritual celebration, or a service project for the community.
(Note: Nursery care is still provided during multi-generational services.)
