Our vibrant and thriving Religious Education (RE) program provides a wide variety of rich opportunities for learning to guide faith development in children, youth and adults.

We serve everyone!

Here, you will find opportunities for learning that suit every age group from pre-school to senior adults. Our programs range from Sunday morning classes for children and youth to service projects and activities, to movie nights, workshops, and class meetings that explore theological concepts.

We value our principles.

Together with a wonderful group of volunteers, instructors, and lay leaders, we engage in an ongoing process of discovering ways (through experience, learning, and discovery) to live out our Unitarian Universalist principles.

We offer spirituality support.

UUFN children create a timeline of events in the Middle East that affected girls’ lives.

Supporting parents and guardians as primary spiritual teachers of their children…

Supporting teachers and volunteers in their passion for creating an environment conducive to learning…

Supporting our fellowship in educating spiritual seekers inspired to promote a just and compassionate world…

We are a welcoming program.

We encourage and respect diversity of religious thought, and responsibly open the way to a healthy pursuit along whatever path (spiritual or not) an individual may be inclined to take.  Whatever your age or religious perspective (or, lack thereof), YOU BELONG HERE!

At UUFN we cultivate wonder, imagination and the courage to act.

 

We started looking for a spiritual home when our children were young. I was raised Jewish and my husband was raised Catholic. We wanted something different for our children. We were so happy to find UUFN. The religious education program taught about world religions and also to be a good person. Our children knew “the reasons for the seasons” for Easter and Christmas. They also did service projects and were exposed to adults (mentors) at UUFN. We made many lifelong friends at UUFN.     ~ C.B.

 

You know you’re at the right “church” (aka: fellowship) when the service includes music from the Grateful Dead! I have been attending the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Newark for almost a year now. The journey to finding a spiritual home began when my children started asking me “Who is God?” I didn’t know how to answer them. All I knew was that I wanted my children to be able to decide for themselves. I wanted them to have an understanding of religion and fellowship, regardless of what they end up ultimately believing.  Who knew there was a place for us right here in Newark, Delaware. I had been curious about it for a while, but was afraid to attend a “church.” It had been SO long since I stepped into a church on a Sunday morning. It is very obvious that now we are in the right place on Sunday mornings.       ~ T.W.
