Thank you for visiting our Religious Education program. We hope your children and/or youth enjoy their time with us. We encourage new families to visit RE classes together to meet the teachers and other young people. After visiting three or so times, if you decide our community is a place your family could be a part of, please complete the registration process so we can get to know your family and have important information to serve you children and youth better. Unitarian Universalist Congregation at Willamette Falls wishes you and your family a warm welcome!
Our vibrant Children and Youth Religious Education Program is led by our teacher council and staffed by many volunteers. Sunday morning groups from birth through high school youth are held from 10:30 to 11:45 a.m.
Warm and loving nursery care for babies through young three year old’s is provided by the Nursery Coordinator, Nursery Care Assistant staff members as well as congregational volunteers.
Sundays mornings, children grades Pre-k thru 6th grade attend the first fifteen minutes or so of the worship service with their parents or guardians, and then are “sung out of the service” to go to their classes. Children ages five and up contribute to Sunday services by lighting the chalice and our fifth graders take the monthly collection for the local food pantry. Junior Youth and Senior Youth classes begin at 10:30 in designated classes.
We have several All-Ages Services throughout the church year which are planned to be especially inclusive for children and youth. They are the Welcoming and Water Ceremony in September, Thanksgiving service in November, Holiday service and Christmas Eve service in December, Flower Communion service and the Worship and picnic in the park in June.
