Religious Education for Children and Youth

Winter Chalice Clubhouse!

The fun never ends at USH! Whenever, and however, you come, we’ll be happy to see you!

The Chalice Clubhouse RE meets weekly during the Sunday service. Worship services start at 10:30 am on Sundays, both in-person and streaming online.

Religious Education @ The Unitarian Society of Hartford

The Chalice Clubhouse is a fun, child-centric curriculum fostering individuality and free-thinking, using the Seven Principles as our guiding compass. We have a variety of activities available from week to week for children and youth to participate in, including arts and crafts, opportunities for dramatic play, cooperative games, meditation sessions, and much more!

Our Clubhouse is open on Sunday mornings to all children and youth present. Youth and children who wish to participate in RE programming should be downstairs in Fellowship Hall when service begins at 10:30 am, or be dropped off there when their family arrives for service.

We hope to see you!

Welcome to the Unitarian Society of Hartford! 

As Unitarian Universalists, we strive to engage in a “free and responsible search for truth and meaning.”   A key purpose of our religious education program is to provide a framework for our children as they begin their path of lifespan faith development.   As such, each of our classes is designed to include a wide range of religious and philosophical traditions, and to integrate a variety of learning styles.  We welcome all families and children, including those with special needs, and will make every effort to accommodate all children in our program.

We lived in the world of virtual church during the Covid-19 pandemic, offering options online for youth and young adults to stay connected and engaged in a variety of activities. As we navigate beyond covid we welcome your ideas and enthusiasm as we work together to create a post-pandemic community for religious education. Join us in this exciting planning phase.

What Our Children Learn

Our children are taught to think for themselves, while receiving guidance on moral and ethical behavior.   We allow their individual beliefs to unfold without any dogma. Our children will learn that all big religious questions have many answers, and that it is their duty to search responsibly for their own truth. Ultimately, we want our children to become mature adults who make their own decisions about what to believe and how to live.
