Lifespan Faith Development
Our Purpose and Goals
As the Unitarian Universalist Association says, “the search for truth and meaning is a lifelong search. We are never too young or too old to be learning.” Our Lifespan Faith Development (LFD) Program promotes the spiritual growth of children, youth and adults, and nurtures the religious life of congregation members, their families, and the community. Faith development for the heart and the mind is part of all we do at this Fellowship.
The purpose of the Lifespan Faith Development Program is to uphold the principles of the Fellowship. We strive to be a community where people of diverse beliefs can worship in a spirit of reason, tolerance, freedom, loving fellowship, and a commitment to social justice.
A Program for All Ages
Our program is designed with the understanding that learning is a life-long experience. The religious education program includes monthly intergenerational services where the children have a role in the service, such as for holidays and the “secret friend” celebration in February.

Responsibility for development of our Fellowship’s Lifespan Faith Development program is shared with the Director of Lifespan Faith Development, the Lifespan Faith Development Committee of volunteers and the minister. Faith Development curricula are selected and developed from resources provided by the UUA and developed by our Director of Lifespan Faith Development.
