Unitarian Universalism affirms all families, of origin and of choice. Parents and caregivers find support to embrace their role as children’s primary religious educators—to open authentic conversations with children about difficult topics—to grow in faith together through religious practices, truth-seeking, justice work, service projects, and more.
When the congregation and families work in partnership, possibilities abound. UU family faith development is a journey of relationships. Family members connect and reconnect with one another, the faith community, and the universe itself to discover and rediscover a seeking, active faith.
In addition to our Sunday Small Group for children and youth, we offer families opportunities to explore the congregation’s monthly themes together. Our resources and events are designed to help families connect with Unitarian Universalism at home and in the world.
Supporting Families as They Explore the Sacred in Everyday Spaces
Families receive content organized around eight distinct family “spaces” with ideas and resources to fill those spaces with UU theme-based exploration. It’s about creating memorable and amazing moments, through a design that is manageable, faithful and fun!
The best way to engage with Soul Home is to join the UUCMC Learning Community on Mighty Network if you are not already a member.
