Unitarian Universalist Religious Education Philosophy

We believe that the search for truth begins as soon as a child can think and spans one’s entire lifetime. As Unitarian minister William Ellery Channing wrote, "The great end of religious instruction is not to stamp our minds irresistibly upon the young but to stir up their own." Understanding that parents are the primary religious educators of their children, Unitarian Universalist congregations covenant to support families in their free faith journey.

Current Curriculum - CLiF Notes: A Curriculum for Families and Small Groups

CLiF Notes is a lively, explicitly Unitarian Universalist curriculum. Each week includes an opening and closing words, a centering exercise, a story, activities, and discussion questions. Sessions explore both Unitarian Universalism and other religions of the world, and use stories, art, drama, worship, games and more to help children explore their own beliefs, the beliefs of other religions, and what it means to be a Unitarian Universalist.
