Lifespan Faith Development
What We Offer Through the Lifespan
We provide children, youth, and adults an opportunity to explore, reflect, and learn in a nurturing spiritual community. Unitarian Universalist faith development programs offer all ages, inspiring:
- Ethical growth – internalizing enduring values like justice, equity, and compassion, and gaining tools to act on them in everyday life.
- Social growth – connecting with peers and people of all ages on a deeper level. Finding acceptance among people who see beyond the superficial.
- Spiritual growth – feeling a connection with the sacred within, among, and beyond us.
Lifespan Faith Development includes programs for both children and adults but Faith Development is so much more than classes. We also offer book discussion sessions, meet-up styles field trips with some geared towards families and others geared for adults, Small Group Ministries, special interest groups that explore topics and experiences such as meditation, a UU mystic group and exploring various spiritual practices. We offer special services throughout the year including specially designed Multi-Generational services and Children’s Chapel. Many programs incorporate social justice activities, worship opportunities, service trips, fellowship, and fun. Most importantly, our program offerings are planned with the interests and requests of our congregation in mind. How can we help support your search for truth and meaning?
Our Director of Lifespan Faith Development and Minister lead many of our congregations’ faith development programs. Parents and other members of the congregation often lead them, too. Teaching can be a very fulfilling way to deepen one’s own faith.
While Children’s Faith Development programs are typically part of our Sunday mornings, our teen youth group meets on Sunday evenings. We strive to offer Adult Faith Development programs with various schedule options and commitment levels to best meet the needs of our congregational community. Special programs and meet-up style field trips are planned periodically at a variety of times.
