Religious education is a journey that begins in childhood, but never ends. Lifespan Religious Education Ministry Team is led by the Director of Religious Education, working with a team of volunteers. The team meets together once a month and collaborates to create Sunday-morning religious education classes for children, organize groups for youth and families, coordinate “Our Whole Lives” sexuality education, multi-generational and adult education classes, and coordinate religious education efforts with other groups and teams.
OUR VISION OF RELIGIOUS EDUCATION
For our children and youth’s religious education program, we envision a welcoming, safe, and exciting environment in which young people develop a rooted Unitarian Universalist identity and sense of community along with a personally meaningful, vibrant spirituality.
Further, we envision a community where the spiritual, religious, and intellectual lives of members and friends of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Midland are continuously enriched, and the sense of our community as “beloved community” is continuously enhanced, as a result of lifelong learning opportunities of high quality
provided in a safe and supportive environment.
To create a religious education program that engages children and youth in fun and meaningful activities that help them develop a positive Unitarian Universalist religious identity, an ethical approach to life, a personal spirituality, skills to live in a world of religious diversity, and a sense of interconnectedness with all people and the entire universe.
To provide structured adult programming that promotes spiritual, religious, and intellectual enrichment within the context of Unitarian Universalism.
