Religious Education Committee
Do your children have questions?
“My child was asking about religion and wanted to go to church,” said one adult.”
“My children were asking about God, and I didn’t know what to tell them,” stated another adult.
At UU St. Pete, we are here to assist you as your child explores life’s questions. Our purpose in the Religious Education (RE) program is to foster the full spiritual and faith development of children and youth so that they may lead healthy, happy, helpful lives. Our program aims to encourage exploration of humanity’s many wisdom traditions and involvement in our church and community.
For pre-K children through and high school youth, we offer a variety of age-specific classes: discussion, art, yoga, meditation, music, and more. Everyone gathers in the sanctuary to participate in the beginning of the church service. During the Time For All Ages, children and youth are invited to gather at the front for an activity. Then, RE staff members lead the students to their classes.
In Nursery Care, our youngest children receive warm and loving care. Parents need to bring bottles, diapers, and any special instructions. Parents are welcome to visit. The nursery is open from 10:15am to noon on Sundays. Additional hours are available upon advance request so that adults can attend church activities outside that time.
