Children and Family Ministry
The Unitarian Universalist Church of Spokane offers a vibrant and engaging Children and Family Ministry Program which includes community and family events, opportunities for multigenerational spiritual growth, and ongoing religious education for children and youth.
The Unitarian Universalist Seven Principles are at the heart of all the programming we provide and we hope to provide all our children and youth with a strong UU identity. A big part of our mission is to give our children and youth, and their families, the tools to move through this world with compassion, integrity, and the ability to think critically. Please take this opportunity to explore our website and take a look at the Sunday Religious Education classes, as well as parent groups, OWL, Coming of Age, and more.
Welcome to our community!

Children and Family Ministry Registration:
Registering your family each year with the Children and Family Ministry Office allows us to keep you up-to-date on events and programs. We will use the information you provide to inform the types of programs we offer and to best serve our community. This will also help us insure that we have all of the information we need to keep your child safe.
Paper registration forms can be found in the Children and Family Ministry Office or by contacting the DCFM, Aria Curtis. You are also encouraged to register online [here] . We encourage all of our families to get in touch with our Membership and Programs Coordinator to sign up on Breeze.
Between supplies, snack, and other associated expenses, it costs about $75 per child to provide meaningful ministry to children and families. We encourage families to make a donation of $25-$50 per child when registering, to help offset those costs.
