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


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.

Youth Religious Education News

Youth Religious Education - Welcome Newbies!

Newbie"Welcome newbies! You will love and be loved." This was part of an e-mail response from YRE Committee member Carol Zoernack on the news that we have two new teachers/helpers with Sunday YRE: Olga Hebert and Tim Saltonstall. We are also thrilled to have Kathleen Gerstner joining us to help with special events and field trips.

The YRE Committee, along with the DRE, hosted a YRE Volunteer Refresher and Orientation in February. The group got to role-play being the children in order to experience the opening circle for both age groups served on Sundays. Teachers shared their experiences and joys in working with our kids. Obviously, those new and returning volunteers had a great time with lots of laughs and enthusiasm. It's not too late to join us. Contact DRE Jaye Williams if you want to find out how you can get involved.
