Our Goals for Religious Exploration at UUFLB

The young people of the UU Fellowship of Lower Bucks will:

  1. Understand the seven UU principles, and be able to incorporate them in their daily lives;
  2. Be able to understand and explain Unitarian Universalism, both as it has been historically, and as it is today in our congregations and as a larger movement;
  3. Explore the world’s religions, in an effort to become effective and respectful partners in dialogue;
  4. Learn to put faith into action through social service and social justice opportunities;
  5. Cultivate deep self-knowledge and self-worth in an atmosphere of acceptance and encouragement;
  6. Develop a lifelong eagerness to learn, with open minds and open hearts;
  7. Experience the joy of belonging to a welcoming multigenerational religious community that can become a deep-rooted spiritual home.

Vision Statement

We, the Religious Education Committee of the UnitarianUniversalist Fellowship of Lower Bucks, envision our focus on spirituality to incorporate what is Unitarian Universalism in the spirit of guidance and with time for reflection, while having the freedom to question.

We want our children to feel excited about being in an environment of love and support, while experiencing friendship and respect, in an exceptional Unitarian Universalist community that models shared values in the context of emotional, psychological and physical safety.



Mission Statement

UUFLB will provide relevant lifespan Religious Education for Preschool through High School in a nurturing and accepting environment. We commit to helping our children build a spiritual foundation that embraces diversity of thought, and encourages faith in action based on our shared values and Unitarian Universalist principles. We will expand their horizons by teaching them our UU heritage, as well as exploring other world religions and their development. By participating in social action projects, and focusing on peaceful interactions, we will encourage our children to find their place in the world and foster their individual Unitarian Universalist identity. We accept this mission fully respecting our privilege to guide our youth in releasing their talents, gifts and creativity.
