The Unitarian Universalist approach is unique in that it focuses on human and spiritual values rather than a set creed, thus providing thoughtful assistance as each individual develops a personal concept of his or her place in the world.
Children are able, at different developmental stages, to deal with different aspects of the same topics: birth, death, values, emotions, environmental concerns, sexuality, our heritages, religions of the world and many more. Religious Education classes at West Shore are geared to encourage UU faith development and identity.
On Sunday mornings, West Shore offers Religious Education classes for children and youth from 10:15 – 11:25 am. Click here to register your child.
Religious Education for Children
Dedicated adult volunteers provide a warm and welcoming space for children to build friendships and grow in community. Our classes allow children to explore topics and values important to Unitarian Universalism such as respect, love, learning, science, justice, and much more.

High school youth in Grades 9-12 meet at 10:15 am on Sunday mornings. West Shore’s youth group builds community and friendships while engaging youth in a curriculum that explores UU identity, faith formation, and justice issues.
The Youth Group is co-led by the youth as they are able and willing, giving the youth opportunities to grow as leaders with adult guidance and support. Throughout the year, we’ll deepen our understanding of some of life’s challenges and big questions, and perhaps find answers. Youth will begin to grow into young adulthood as they lean into their growing edges with the support of the youth community and advisors.
Sunday Evening Youth Group (6:00 p.m. – 7:15 p.m.) This group is for youth in Grades 7-12. It meets one Sunday each month for games, activities, and worship. Contact Youth Ministry Coordinator Melinda McGucken for more information @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
