Religious Education

Religious Education or RE (as it is often referred to as), here at Boone Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (BUUF) provides people of all ages a chance to reflect on our seven guiding principles and to learn from the teachings of the world’s religions, including Judaism and Christianity, as well as Earth-based religions and humanist philosophies.

Youth/Children RE Program 

BUUF seeks to provide religious education to all ages. We offer children and youth classes from 11:20 - 12:15 (while adults are in service) to help children understand and develop the values and principles we as UUs see as the vehicle of seeking one's truth in their own need for faith and spirituality.

Parents can register their children at coffee hour or by downloading the form below. This ensures we have the most updated information and contacts. Our teachers are committed to teaching your children and want to be sure and see that you have an understanding of what your child's needs are or may be on Sunday mornings.

We also feel the need to share with you our BUUF Childcare Policies. These can be found in a link below or by contacting the DRE.


RE Leadership

Our Director of Religious Education (DRE) is Allison Rollans. She can be found at BUUF on Sunday mornings assisting the RE classes, at coffee hour in the Founder’s House or in the service. She is happy to answer any questions you may have about our Religious Education Programs.

You may also reach her during the week at acrollans@gmail.com.

Our RE chair is Jaime Money. Her support and direction of our Religious Education committee is essential to the growth of our RE programming. Cinda Holscomb-Ebner is our Secretary and Communications guru.

Adult Forum

Our Adult RE program hosts Sunday Morning Forums and fosters discussion on topics regarding spirituality in the today's busy world.


Additional RE Opportunities 

For our middle school aged youth, we have the Our Whole Lives (OWL) Program, a progressive approach to comprehensive sexual education that equips young people with age-appropriate, accurate information about human sexuality so they can make informed, thoughtful decisions. OWL was developed in conjunction with the United Church of Christ and the Unitarian Universalist Association. We facilitate this program for BUUF, High Country United Church of Christ, and community youth every two years.

Contact the Director of Religious Education for more information.
