Children & Youth Ministry

The Children & Youth Ministry (CYM) at UUSE offers a thriving program for all young people from infancy through senior high and more!


Classes are held on the Garden Level at UUSE, concurrently with the second (11am) service from September through June. In the summer months, we offer a lighter schedule which runs concurrent with the 10am service.

New or Visiting?

Be sure to let a greeter know if you’re visiting a service and would like to know more about our program. They will be happy to put you in touch with a member of our staff or committee! Or if you prefer, email us at:

Volunteers Needed

The Children & Youth Ministry is run by professionals and volunteers working together. We ask that families who enroll their children in the program offer to help – there are LOTS of options designed to fit different comfort levels and availability. Adults without children in the program often help as well! Many hands make light work – and allow all volunteers a chance to become connected to the program, while still having the ability to attend services and feel spiritually nurtured! 

To sign up to volunteer please select from these links:

Nursery (ages 3 and under) 

Workshop Adventure (Grades 1 through 5) 


Advanced Workshop Rotation for 5th Graders 


Twilight Zone (6th, 7th and 8th grades) 

High School Youth Group (Grades 9-12)
Faith In Action (Grades 10-12)
