“Forget conventionalisms; forget what the world thinks of you stepping out of your place; think your best thoughts, speak your best words, work your best works, looking to your own conscience for approval.” ~ Susan B. Anthony
Welcome to Religious Education programming at Buckman Bridge Unitarian Universalist Church!
We offer children, teens, and adults opportunities to nurture their spiritual and personal growth and to explore values that encourage love and fairness. Active listening, compassion, and a willingness to try are the keys to growth. Religious Education (RE) is a supportive community effort of the BBUUC. We provide a nurturing community that encourages lifelong growth in spirit and mind with UU Principles being the foundation. The discussions in RE promote critical thinking skills, empathy, understanding, and intersectional development. Our fellowship is formed to inspire a growth mindset and a love for learning in each heart.
We offer a safe and creative environment in which children and youth become compassionate, knowledgeable, and involved members of our spiritual community as well as of the world at large. To achieve this, our program provides opportunities for fellowship, free inquiry and expression, ethical and spiritual growth, and service to our communities.

“When it comes to our children, we do not have the luxury of despair. If we rise, they will rise with us every time, no matter how many times we’ve fallen before. I hope you will remember that the next time you fail. I hope I will too. Remembering that is the most important work as parents we can possibly do.”
