The church relies on all adult congregants, not just parents, to take turns teaching our 300 children and youth, pre-school through high school. CRE teachers explore sources and traditions of our UU faith, search for meaning about life’s big questions, and take time for worship and reflection with their Sunday school class. We value the uniqueness of every child and young person, encouraging creativity and self-expression as well as community building and service. Teachers are provided age-appropriate lessons and paired with a co-teacher.
The Children’s Choir exposes children to singing, integrates music into the CRE curriculum, provides music for the Children’s Chapel, and occasionally performs in the Sanctuary and at other venues.
Join us as we create Beloved Community at Camp Tockwogh, two hours from All Souls on the eastern shore of the Chesapeake Bay. WOB brings congregants together for spiritual reflection, relaxation, outdoor fun, and a chance to make new connections while strengthening established friendships. Highlights include a Friday night bonfire and Vespers service, Saturday workshops, Saturday evening talent show and dance party, and Sunday outdoor worship service.
The CRE Committee supports and participates in the creation of a faith development program plan which strengthens and clarifies the ethical, moral, and spiritual lives of children and youth in collaboration with the Children’s Religious Educator and the Director of Children's Religious Education. We meet once a month to support teacher training and development, plan and implement religious education events, represent the interests of the children and youth within the church, and work with other adults in the wider congregation to build a religious community.
