What We Offer Through the Lifespan


The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Erie is a nurturing spiritual community in which  children, youth, and adults explore, reflect, and learn.

In discussions, lectures, and classroom activities, and during Sunday worship services, our congregation provides opportunities for

Ethical growth – internalizing enduring values like justice, equity, and compassion, and  gaining tools to act on them in everyday life.

Social growth – connecting with peers and people of all ages on a deeper level.

Finding acceptance among people who see beyond the superficial.

Spiritual growth – feeling a connection with the sacred within, among, and beyond us.

Religious education includes more than classes. Social justice activities, worship opportunities, community service, fellowship, and socializing in a safe setting instill and strengthen the values of Unitarian Universalism.

During Sunday services, we offer classes for teen and children as well as a nursery service for our wee ones.  All classrooms and the nursery are staffed with a minimum of two (2) adults per room as per our Safe Congregation policy.  Our teachers all have their clearances and are trained as mandated reporters.  Parents are required to fill out an enrollment form prior to their child’s participation in the Sunday Morning Programs.
