We do aim to teach basic religious literacy, but facts about religion are a small part of what we teach. Most importantly, we want to teach children to become sensitive, moral, and joyful people, people who have intellectual integrity and spiritual insight.
— Rev. Dan Harper, Associate Minister of Religious Education
The Unitarian Universalist Church of Palo Alto provides for the religious education of young people from preschool to 12th grade. In our Sunday school classes, we have four big goals:
• We want children to have fun and feel they are part of a community.
• We want children to gain the basic religious literacy expected in our society.
• We want children to learn the skills associated with liberal religion, things such as public speaking, singing, basic leadership skills, interpersonal skills, etc.
• And finally, we aim to prepare children to become Unitarian Universalist adults, should they choose to become Unitarian Universalists when they are old enough to make their own decisions.
