Lower School Religious Education (Birth- 6th Grade)

At First Unitarian Church of Salt Lake City, children, teens and young adults are among the most important resources in our church community. We strive to embrace them throughout the year. Here, children and young adults gain insights into Unitarian Universalist roots in ways that are both inspiring and meaningful.

In class, children explore the meaning of the word “community.”

We want our children to develop a strong social conscience, and we provide them with opportunities to learn together.

The First Church classroom is, by design, a safe and supportive environment in which children are encouraged to develop friendships, be themselves and, above all, have fun!

We are delighted to welcome new families who would like to connect with a stimulating, faith-based community that promotes free and responsible thinking.

From toddler to adulthood, we invite you to experience our welcoming approach to religious education. We depend on volunteer teachers at all levels and encourage participation from the entire community. We look forward to having you join us!


 During the elementary years, our programming is designed to help children explore the values and principles of Unitarian Universalism through many different kinds of experiences while building a sense of community within and connection to our church.

Currently, all Religious Education classes and offerings are being held online. For the remainder to the 2019-2020 church year, Lower School RE will continue to have weekly themes and activities. A copy of each week's activities can be found below.
