“The aim of education is the knowledge, not of facts, but of values.”

– William Inge

 

At the Amarillo Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, our mission is to provide a well-rounded, liberal religious education for all ages in an environment where they feel safe, accepted, respected, and happy.

In our religious community we encourage children, youth, and adolescents to learn, grow, and practice Unitarian Universalist principles:  respect the inherent worth and dignity of each person; offer fair and kind treatment to everyone; say yes to spiritual growth and learning together; grow by exploring ideas and finding your truth; believe in community ideals and use your voice; insist on peace, justice, and freedom for all; and value our responsibility in the web of life.

Join our beloved child and youth community each Sunday at 11am as educators guide the journey to an accepting and loving moral and religious foundation.

Youth Religious Education at the Amarillo Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will focus on teaching and practicing morals, values, and ethics for all ages.
Our Nursery and Early Childhood classroom will be learning about UU principles through reading moral stories from around the world.
Our Elementary classroom will be following the Tapestries of Faith curriculum Moral Tales, encompassing the values of forgiveness, generosity, courage, and acceptance.
Our Junior High and High School classroom will be discussing Tapestries of Faith curriculum Virtue Ethics, directed at making ethical decisions. This classroom will also pull from the Tapestries of Faith curriculum Amazing Grace, aimed at understanding right and wrong and making good decisions.

We invite you to review our Policy for the Safety of Children, which applies to all AUUF activities which involve children and youth.
