Children’s and Youth Religious Education

Wildflower strives to support parents in that role by providing a meaningful religious education program that makes a positive difference in children’s and youth’s lives.

Ages of Children We Serve

Our children’s religious education program serves babies and children through 18 years. We provide childcare every Sunday from 9:30 am to 1 pm for children 1-4 years of age. Children age 4 and above may begin in the Pre-K class when they are developmentally ready. Grades 2-5 attend class together, and youth from 6th-12th grade. Currently, infants remain with their parents. Childcare is available for all ages from 9:30-11:30 am and during Sunday afternoon meetings when requested.

What Happens on Sunday?

Children stay with their parents for the first 15 minutes of the worship service, which begins at 11:30 am. After the congregation “sings the children out,” teachers lead them to their classes. The children’s program ends at about 12:45 pm, usually 15 minutes after the Worship Service ends. Childcare begins at 9:30 am and continues until 1 pm. Children attending childcare do not have to begin in the service. To promote child safety, two adults are present in childcare and all classes. In accordance with our Safe Church policy, all RE teachers and care providers undergo background checks.

The Unitarian Universalist faith doesn’t pretend to give children all the answers to the big questions. Unitarian Universalism puts its faith in people’s ability to explore the unknown together.
