Welcome to the Religious Education program of the Unitarian Church of Sharon (UCS). We trust that you will find a comfortable community here in which your child’s spirit can grow.
We recognize that parents are the primary religious educators for their children. The Religious Education (RE) program of the Unitarian Church of Sharon aims to support parents and families in this effort.
Our vision is to create a community:
- where our young members are full participants
- which fosters respect, acceptance, carefully considered values, ethical thought and action
- which is safe, fun, and comfortable
- which supports self-realization within a framework of discussion, questioning, and learning
The entire congregation provides the underlying curriculum of the RE program. Our actions speak louder than our words; our interactions and relationships teach children what we truly value.
-We encourage children and youth to participate in worship each Sunday service to share adult rituals.
-We respect the joys and concerns children voice each week.
-We thoughtfully appreciate all contributions during the 10 am worship service.
-We offer children and youth a “larger family” of congregation members who know them and care for them, both in church on Sunday mornings, as well as throughout the rest of the week.
What are your goals for your child’s religious education? We encourage you to share your questions and concerns with Christine Bulman, our Interim Director of Religious Education (DRE) firstname.lastname@example.org or Kate Oldshue, our Youth MInistry Coordinator email@example.com.
