Founders on Education

Special importance is placed upon the education of our youth for mental and moral freedom, and for the development of their plastic young minds and their first, lasting impressions of all that is true, good, and beautiful. It is therefore the first duty of a teacher to diligently and consistently provide instruction to our young people in history and ethics, lead them to the acquisition of a self-reliant view of life in the family, the state, and among nations; strengthen their moral judgment and feeling; awaken their respect for and good will toward all human beings; imbue them with contempt for serfdom and love for freedom; and practice them in self-control. For this purpose it is the teacher’s duty to acquaint them with the development of mankind in all its ways and byways, its aberrations and adjustments of judgment, and to place before them as models the lives of noble and high-minded men and women from the history of pagans, Jews, and Christians,… [for] upon youth rest our hope, the self-government of the people, and the welfare of the citizen.

Children’s Education

We will begin the next semester of children's education classes in September of 2020.We will be using Unitarian study guides. Please see our "Founders on Education" above to find out more about our philosophy.

Fall 2020 classes will meet on the second and fourth Sundays of the month beginning September 12. Our Unitarian Universalist program begins at 10:10 a.m. After opening music and a welcome, children will be invited to sit in the aisle and listen to a "Story for All Ages". After that, the teacher will take them to our schoolroom in the lower level for class.

There is no charge and you do not need to be a member of the congregation. Childcare is provided for the toddlers.


Call Susan Larkin, President of the Board of Directors should you have any questions.
