Our Philosophy

We strive to be a deeply connected and supportive religious education community that teaches the values of our religion and helps our children and youth find their own spiritual identity within an environment where they feel safe, accepted, respected and happy. Unitarian Universalist religious education is a process which celebrates our religious identity and forms a foundation for a lifelong search for truth and meaning. In our program we endeavor to:

• Instill a belief in the sacredness and interconnectedness of all life.

• Encourage participation in celebrations and rituals that mark life’s passages.

• Build religious/spiritual knowledge based on Unitarian Universalism and other religions.

• Encourage adult participation in the life and growth of our youth.

• Develop leadership and democratic skills.

• Foster a sense of belonging to a wider community and the Universe.

This year, we are committed to serving families through in-person and online children’s and youth programming, supporting parents in religious and spiritual exploration at home with their children, and through online and in-person multigenerational worship services.

We look forward to meeting you and your family. If you would like additional information or if you have questions, please contact Margaret Rogers, Director of Lifespan Religious Education by email or 425-822-0171. Margaret also coordinates educational opportunities for adults.

 

GENERAL INFORMATION

GENERAL INFORMATION

NURSERY

Northlake Unitarian Universalist Church provides childcare from birth through preschool, from 10:15 to 11:45 a.m. for parents and caregivers attending the Sunday worship service. Children will be supervised by our nursery staff, and welcomed to play together and read. Parents and caregivers are invited to stay with their children as long as needed for everyone to feel comfortable in their surroundings and to check in any time. Children of visitors are welcome.

VISITORS

We love visitors!

Help your child have a better experience by bringing them often. Regular attendance allows children to build relationships at church and permits more continuity between lessons. Please make Sunday morning church a family ritual.

REGISTRATION

After you’ve visited a few times, we ask that families register for our Children’s and Youth programming, which allows us to know more about the children that we are serving and to collect contact information for sending out weekly program updates. You can register online here or by emailing Margaret Rogers, the Director of Lifespan Religious Education.

CHILDREN'S COVENANT OF RELATIONS

We light this chalice to remind ourselves

 

    • to treat all people kindly, because they are our siblings in spirit;
    • to take good care of the earth, because it is our home;
    • to live our lives full of goodness and love because that is how we will become the best people we can be.
