Learning is like light.
It shows us paths we never knew existed! Whether young or not-so-young, our commitment is to the open heart and mind. We learn in worship, we learn in gatherings, we learn in fellowship.
Childcare is available in a warm and loving environment from 10:30 until the end of the worship service; this is reserved for children three and under. Please honor our Well-Child policy by caring for sick children at home to avoid spreading illness.

Welcome To Religious Education
at The Unitarian Universalist Church of Weymouth.
Feel free to visit us any time! Once you’ve visited a few times and feel ready to settle in, it’s time to register.
We ask that all families register for the RE program each year in order to keep our family contact information updated and also have accurate records about children’s allergies, dietary restrictions, medical concerns, and special needs.
We will have RE registration throughout the church year (September-June). Our registration forms are on the right as you enter the social hall.
Our RE Mission is to provide, through the participation of parents and other members of this congregation, guidance for our children and youth in their personal, ethical, and spiritual exploration, in a safe, nurturing, inclusive, and engaging environment.
Our RE Vision is to continually evolve toward a multi-generational community of aware, involved individuals who live the values of our faith.

2. Offer fair and kind treatment to all
3. Yearn to learn and grow throughout life
4. Grow by exploring ideas and values together
5. Believe in your ideas and act on them
6. Insist on peace, freedom and justice for all
7. Value our interdependence with nature
