Children in Pre-K through grade 6 begin most Sundays as service participants in the sanctuary for our 10am service. They then proceed with their teachers and leaders to their respective RE classes at about 10:15. Nursery care is available from the start of the service in the lower level of the Minnie Brown Center for children under 4 years of age. All children must be picked up from the lower level of the Minnie Brown Center at 11:15.
A Religious Education prospectus detailing our curricula and programs for all ages and registration information are available at any time by contacting the church office.
Our Director of Religious Education (DRE) is Nicole Shanks. Nicole has a strong background in youth education and programming, including two years as Director of Lifespan Religious Education at the UU Church in Bangor.
