A Vibrant Program We have a vibrant program for children from pre-school through 9th grade, with over 500 children enrolled in our classes and over 120 volunteer teachers. Our classes meet during each of our worship times—Saturdays at 4:30 p.m. and Sundays at 9 and 11 a.m.
through Ninth Grade
In the early years, we focus on building a trusting community, helping children to feel safe and secure at FUS, and introducing them to UU principles. During the elementary school years we learn more about our UU history and traditions, the beliefs of other traditions, our evolutionary history, and the stories of the Bible. In middle school, youth compare the basic tenets of the worlds’ religions, deepen their understanding of their own beliefs and Unitarian Universalism, and learn about relationship development and sexuality. Our curricular program culminates with our 9th grade Coming of Age year. These students explore some of the BIG QUESTIONS in life and develop a statement of their personal beliefs.
