If you are new to First Universalist, welcome!
We are glad you are interested in registering your child in our Religious Education program. If you haven’t had the opportunity to visit us on a Sunday morning, that’s the best place to begin. We ask families to formally register their children for nursery care or Religious Education (RE) classes after two to four visits. When you register your child, you help us plan and staff our classrooms appropriately, and you make a commitment to giving your child the gift of a welcoming, accepting church community.
When you register your child at First Universalist, you engage in a supportive and affirming faith community. Together, we celebrate, grieve, grow and seek to build a peaceful and just world for ourselves and our children. In this spirit, each family is asked to take an active role in the work of our Children, Youth & Family Ministries; consider the volunteer options and select your top choices on the RE registration form.
This year, Religious Education registration is online.
Please complete separate forms for each child in your family. Once you've submitted your RE registration request online, you can expect a confirmation email within five business days. Follow the link that will be provided in the confirmation email to pay your child(ren)'s registration fees through our secure online payment system. The registration process is finalized only when payment has been received.
All families, new and returning, will be invited to attend an orientation session in the fall, where you will have the opportunity to learn more about our 2013-2014 classes for children and youth. Please look for the announcement in your email in late summer and plan to attend.
Please note that we will make every attempt to register your child for the service time you request. Class assignments are made on a first-come basis. Some classes may reach their enrollment capacity, but there is always room for every family at one of our service times.
First Universalist recognizes that Religious Education classes are but one aspect of a child’s spiritual toolbox. There are many opportunities for parents and families to worship, work and play together. We hope that your involvement in our Children, Youth & Family Ministries programs will enrich your family, support you as a parent, and encourage you on your spiritual journey.
