K-5th Grade | Thematic Moral Tales | Parent-led

K-5 lessons are based on the UUA curriculum "Moral Tales," but have been adapted to connect with BUC’s monthly themes. These easy to follow, no-prep lesson plans are emailed directly to parents so families can explore the theme together through stories and activities. See a sample lesson here. Two volunteers and the RE Coordinator check in frequently to support and encourage parents.

6th & 7th Grade | Building Bridges | Every other Sunday from 1:00-2:00 pm

The Building Bridges curriculum explores world religions and spiritual practices to contextualize and inspire 6th and 7th graders’ own spiritual search and beliefs. This class includes activities, virtual tours, and full-family components.

Building Bridges meets on Zoom, every other Sunday from 1:00-2:00 p.m.

8th Grade | Coming of Age | Sundays from 1:00-2:00 pm

The Coming of Age curriculum helps youth explore Unitarian Universalist theology, history, and practices. In this important ritual of transition from childhood, youth reflect on and define their own beliefs in a credo.

Coming of Age meets on Zoom, Sundays from 1:00-2:00 p.m.


9th-12th Grade | GUUSH | Every other Sunday from 1:00-2:00 pm

GUUSH (Great Unitarian Universalist Senior High) is youth-led and adult-guided. Youth decide how much to focus on each of the core GUUSH areas: curriculum, worship leadership, social justice, and community building. Adult facilitators guide meetings, but GUUSH is intentionally youth-led.

GUUSH meets on Zoom, every other Sunday from 1:00-2:00 p.m.
