UUSSD_Learning_01Spiritual growth takes a lifetime and happens both within and beyond a congregation’s walls. We support one another as individuals, families, and communities in an ongoing search for truth and meaning. We strive to guide one another—all ages among us—in religious questioning, personal change, and discovering ways to live better in faith.

Children’s Programs

  • Children attend worship service with their parents/guardians at 10 a.m. for about 20 minutes, then leave to go to their lessons after a special children’s story. Occasionally, we have full services that are multigenerational or holiday parties and service projects during lesson time.
  • Two adults teach each group from curricula developed by our national organization, the Unitarian Universalist Association or other UU sources.
  • Children explore our UU Principles, how they are reflected in other faiths, and continue developing values, like justice and compassion.
  • During the summer, classes are often mixed in ages and consist of special activities, such as drum circles, exploring nature, or photography.
  • With stories, games, and activities worked into their lessons, they also have fun!
  • Families are kept informed about upcoming classes and special events through weekly emails from Amber Peterson, Director of Lifespan Faith Development.
  • For additional information about our children’s or youth programs, see other pages in this section or email our Director of Lifespan Faith Development or call her at 302-853-0846.
  • Read our brochure, Guide for Adults Who Worship with Children for more information.

Adult Learning

  • Classes are held in the evening or during the day. Most are open to the public.
  • Teachers are members of the congregation and invited special speakers who want to explore thought-provoking topics.
  • The class format leaves time for questions and discussion.
  • Class participants get to know each other and become actively involved in our wonderful nurturing community.
