School-age youth

Youth religious education campfire is held each September.Youth and their families gather at end of summer each year for a campfire and tie-dye event, right, to kick off the new school year.

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. Whatever your religious background – or if you have never participated in a faith community – there is room for you and your children in our congregation.

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.

Children and adults remove debris along the DuPage RiverSocial 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.
