Children’s and Youth’s Religious Education at CVUF!
The children’s and youth’s program at CVUF creates a fun, nurturing and connecting space where children and young people confidently explore making meaning in their life experiences and the world around them.
Families in all shapes and sizes are welcome here and you do not need to be a CVUF member to participate. Child-minding is provided for families with children in programs, parents attending programs or weekly services and often during special events.
Healthy spirituality in children is scientifically proven to be a source of great resilience and power carried into adulthood and can reliably predict fulfillment, success and thriving. Children who have a positive active relationship to spirituality are:
- more likely to have positive markers for thriving & high levels of academic success
- 40% less likely to use and abuse substances
- 60% less likely to be depressed as teenagers
- 80% less like to have dangerous or unprotected sex.
Weekly youth group and children’s programs are available at CVUF every Sunday. Special programs and events like Our Whole Lives sexual health program and Spiritual Parenting workshops are also offered.
Children’s Version of 7 Unitarian Principles
That each and every person is important; That all people should be treated fairly and kindly;
That we should accept one another and keep on learning together;
That each person must be free to search for what is true and right in life;
That everyone should have a vote about things that concern them In working for a peaceful, fair and free world;
In caring for our planet earth, the home we share with all living things.
Parents are welcome to volunteer assistance, observe sessions anytime, or use the chance to attend CVUF Sevices.
Child minding for younger children is available.

After a few visits registering your children provides the information about contacts, health needs, emergency contacts etc., so we can do our best to plan for your child’s continued participation.
