During the regular CYRE program year, visiting children and youth are asked to sign-in with the CYRE Greeter on the lower level before the beginning of the worship service. After a few visits, families who wish to continue their children's involvement will be asked to register for the program, which entails volunteering and pledging as able. Please see the annual CYRE Prospectus below for more details about our program. There are some other important documents below as well.

Our youngest are learners too! While these children receive safe comfort and care during the 10:00 AM worship service, they will also begin learning some early group skills and simple Unitarian Universalist rituals as they grow.

Children and youth are warmly welcomed to UUCM! School age children and youth regularly join the congregation for the beginning of the worship service before going to classes.  Children and youth are also welcome to attend summer services when classes are not in session. In addition to Sunday morning classes, there are periodic fellowship and social justice activities for children, youth and families. Youth fellowship activities are primarily planned and implemented by individual youth and their families. Watch the church calendar, as well as for announcements and flyers on the lower level. Contact Andrea if you have an activity you would like to see happen.

Children and Youth Religious Education is under the guidance of Director of Religious Education for Children and Youth, Andrea Purdy Heier. The Religious Education Program for Children and Youth is one facet of the Lifespan Religious Education Ministry whose mission is: "to be a catalyst and support for spiritual growth, transformation and progressive change within our congregation and the wider community". The mission of the CYRE program is to journey with families in their Unitarian Universalist faith formation by inspiring open minds, loving hearts and helping hands.
