Religious Education


The Nursery is a safe and fun place for our youngest members and visitors. We maintain a staff of trained and consistent sitters. Babies and Children are lovingly cared for each Sunday morning from 10:15 to noon. Our youngest participants will have age-appropriate activities, art projects, songs, and snack while forming their first community at UUSO.

Religious Education begins at Kindergarten and lasts through 12th grade. In RE classes, children and youth can be part of a supportive, questioning, open-minded, justice-seeking community of friends that can prop them up in ways which are not found anywhere else in their lives. The curricula are popular, dynamic, and fun. Please encourage RE participants to come to church as often as they can. The more they attend, the more they will benefit from the RE Program! All religious education programs end at noon. Whether coming to RE for the first time, once every so often, or for every possible class, everyone is always welcome!

Each year on Easter Sunday, the children participate in an Easter egg hunt, but instead of eggs, they search for cans of food, which are then delivered to local food banks.

Where do I go on a Sunday Morning?  Most weeks, we offer “Start Together” Sundays. K-6th grade RE participants will begin their day in the Sanctuary. After the “Time For All Ages,” the congregation will sing the children out and RE classes will begin. We occasionally have “Stay Together” Sundays, where children participate in an intergenerational worship service with the rest of the UUSO congregation. This information will also be listed in your order of service. The JR/SR YRUU, Young Religious Unitarian Universalists, group begins at 10:30. They meet most often at the nearby Olympia Brown House at 16 Ford Ave. Check “Next Sunday’s Classes” to view their activities.
