"With one another, we teach Unitarian Universalist principles, and we aspire to understand ourselves and our evolving world."

Parents who are looking for a faith community to support and affirm them in teaching their children life’s most meaningful values will find a home in the DuPage UU Church Religious Education Program. What ever your religious background – or if you have never participated in a faith community – there is room for you and your children in our congregation.

Children are indeed our future! Here at DuPage UU Church we provide a religious education program that nurtures and stimulates our children’s spiritual and personal growth, and teaches the principles that unify us as Unitarian Universalists. Throughout our program, children and youth are encouraged to seek their own truths, to clarify their values, and to live intentional lives inspired by those values. We help children honor the differences among us – e.g., diversity of race, ability, sexual orientation, and opinion – while celebrating our shared humanity, and we strive to foster their delight in the mysteries and miracles of the world.

Social justice work is central to Unitarian Universalism, and empowering our youngsters to find ways to work to make the world a better place is of great importance to our congregation and is emphasized in our religious education program.
