What’s happening in Children’s Religious Education?

Our Youth Religious Education (YRE) program is divided into three groups by age. In YRE, which meets each Sunday at 11 AM, we challenge our children with interactive studies.  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.
