Faith Development

Faith Development at UUCA

One of the key tenets of Unitarian Universalism is that all of us are responsible for our own spiritual development. Our congregation’s mission statement includes the phrase, “we nurture individual search for meaning.” As a direct response to that mission, we provide faith development opportunities for members of our congregation of all ages.
Our work is grounded and guided by our Seven Principles and Six Sources.
We believe faith development is a lifelong process that is nurtured in community.
We support all ages in that process by:

  • Developing Unitarian Universalist identity
  • Offering opportunities for spiritual growth and religious education
  • Creating congregational experiences that include and value all ages
  • Equipping families to continue faith development at home and in family life
  • Encouraging all to practice UU faith values in daily life and in the wider world
