Youth Religious Education

The UUCOV Youth Religious Education (YRE) program
grounds itself in The Seven Principles of Unitarian Universalism:

Each person is important

Be kind in all you do

We’re free to learn together

We search for what is true

All people have a voice

Build a fair and peaceful world

We care for planet Earth

Inclusivity

We welcome all persons, regardless of:

  • race, ethnicity, national origin;
  • gender or gender identification, affectional preference or sexual orientation;
  • age, physical or mental challenge;
  • social, economic, or marital status.

YRE 1 June 2017So, What Are They Learning?

On April 30th, the YRE teachers and children shared highlights of their YRE curriculum with the congregation. The younger children used the curriculum “Love Surrounds Us”. The younger children were joined by the older children as they waved their 7 Principles wands and chanted, "Love surrounds us every day, the Principles show us the way!" The entire congregation joined in as our lead teachers and children stepped onto the chancel. It was upbeat, energetic, and fun!
The older children shared highlights of their curriculum and led the entire congregation in singing Now Let Us Sing (a staple of their “Sing to the Power” curriculum) with the zipper verses Fire Within and Listening Ears.YRE 2 June 2017
The younger children end each YRE session with the following statement. It is powerful and a lesson for all of us, too.

"Be good to yourself.
Be excellent to others.
Do everything with love."
