We offer a safe and creative environment in which children and youth become compassionate, knowledgeable, and involved members of our spiritual community as well as of the world at large. To achieve this, our program provides opportunities for fellowship, free inquiry and expression, ethical and spiritual growth, and service for our communities.
Classes for 3 year olds through 6th grade meet during Sunday services at 9:15 a.m. (10:15 a.m. during the summer.) A single class is offered at 11:15 a.m. for K – 6th grade. Nursery care is available for infants and toddlers (and preschoolers at 11:15 a.m.) Each class uses a carefully selected curriculum. Programming for junior high- and high-school youth is offered at 6:00 p.m. from September – June. Most teachers and assistants are volunteers from the congregation (we have a paid teacher for the Pre-K class at 9:15 to provide greater consistency for the children than rotating volunteers can provide); some are parents or guardians of children in the program, and others not.

We have a lovely collection of picture books and other books for children in the RE Office. These books are for RE teachers to use in classes, kids and families to look at on Sundays, borrow and take home, or even for folks who work with kids elsewhere to borrow and use. Click the above link to access the Goodreads list. Note: if we own the book, it is tagged “re-library”; some books are instead tagged “bcfl” indicating that we use them with a curriculum, but get them from the library.
