The religious education program for young people in the Unitarian Universalist Church of Meadville is the foundation for a dynamic, lifelong, spiritual journey. We strive to create intergenerational experiences that build bridges, celebrate diversity and provide opportunities for growth. Students are taught about UU principles, history and other world religions. They are given the tools and nurturing environment they need to develop and articulate their own personal beliefs.
Nursery care is provided upstairs in the Parish House during church services for children up to 4 years of age.
Classes for Pre-K through Junior High School students are presented upstairs in the Parish House each Sunday. Young people attend the first twenty minutes of the church service with their parents before proceeding to class.
