There are many opportunities for people of all ages to learn and grow spiritually at First Unitarian Church of Dallas. We believe that no person stops growing, and so we offer learning opportunities for you across the lifespan.
Our lifespan faith development programs help participants to:
- Experience a sense of the sacred
- Develop an understanding of our religious heritage
- Learn what it means to be a Unitarian Universalist
- Explore the religious traditions of others
- Clarify personal religious values
- Express religious convictions through action
Sunday classes are open to all, and meet during the 10 and 11:30 am services, while other classes are offered on weeknights.
Our programs for children, youth, and adults include more than classes. On a Sunday you might find the preschoolers singing songs about kindness, the 2nd graders engaging with a story about loss and bereavement, the 5th graders discussing a story from the Quran, the 8th graders learning about responsibility in a lesson from our progressive sexuality education program, the high-school youth raising money for the local homeless shelter, and adults exploring spiritual practices together. Our programs incorporate social justice activities, worship, service and learning trips, fellowship, and fun.
Volunteers lead our congregation’s lifespan programs. Our volunteer teaching faculty is diverse: single people, young adults, retirees, parents, members of the Board of Trustees, and LGBTQ congregants have all been trained for this special role. Teaching is an opportunity not only to nurture and inspire those in your class, but also to deepen your own faith.
We invite you to explore these pages and visit the welcome desk in the children’s classroom building on Sunday morning to get connected.
