The Role of Parents and Caretakers
Arrive on time and come to church regularly. Children develop a sense of belonging by attending regularly. They get to know their peers and we get to know them if they are here often. Follow the activities of your child’s class.
Talk to your child about what is happening in class. Talk to the DRE and teachers. Talk to your child about things that matter. You are their primary religious educator. Tell your children about your beliefs and what you value.
Be a good listener to your children. Let them know that their ideas and thoughts are of interest to you.
Participate in intergenerational activities. Spending time with members of the congregation at dances, dinners, and gatherings other than Sunday Services helps strengthen our UU community.
Share your time and ideas. Our program needs the energy and creativity of many people in order to be a success.
A Parent’s Potluck Picnic (PPP) takes place on the playground and in the Small Dome on the 3rd Sunday of each month following worship service. At each PPP we celebrate that month’s birthdays with a cake! Please bring a dish to share. This is a great opportunity to connect with other UUCT parents.
Philosophy of Religious Education (RE)
Unitarian Universalist Religious Education is a lifelong process that facilitates each individual’s path of spiritual growth and promotes an understanding of how to live our principles and values. It extends beyond the classroom and is dependant upon the whole congregation’s support and participation. The goal of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Tampa religious education program is to provide a safe space to explore, question, wonder, listen and reflect in a joyful, affirming environment.
We envision children, youth, and adults who:
At UUCT, we take children’s safety very seriously. Please click here to learn more about about our congregation’s Child and Youth Protection Manual.
Childcare (ages 0-3) is available in the Beatrix Potter Nursery to the right rear of the sanctuary from 10:45 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. No prior arrangements are needed. We do ask that you sign in, providing contact details and any known allergy information. As soon as the service concludes, please be sure to pick up your child.
