Religious Education Committee

The Religious Educaiton Committee is comprised of members who work to support the religious educaiton program at Emerson. The purpose of our Religious Education program for Children & Youth is to provide students with a thorough knowledge of the UU faith and a sense of belonging to a greater UU community with shared values and support for their spiritual journeys. Our goal is to foster UU faith development that will serve children & youth as they grow to be life-long Unitarian Universalists. The RE Committee and RE teachers are caring volunteers who are members of Emerson and often parents themselves. All teachers have training opportunities and have passed criminal background checks. They have also signed our Code of Ethics Statement for working with children and youth.

If you have any questions about the Religious Education Committee please email Angela Miles.
