Children's Covenant

Children & Teens

A Children's Version of Our Covenant

We, the members of the Unitarian Universalist Church, believe that

  • all people are important;
  • we should be kind and fair;
  • we should accept other people and help them to grow;
  • we should figure out for ourselves what is true and good;
  • we should do what our consciences tell us is right;
  • people should have a voice and a vote about things that concern them;
  • we should work for peace and freedom everywhere and try to make the world one family;
  • we should take care of the earth which gives us life.

In our church we learn from and get our beliefs from many sources:

  • our own sense of the wonder of life;
  • the Jewish and Christian religions and many other religions from around the world;
  • earth-centered religions which celebrate life and teach us to live in harmony with nature;
  • knowledge gained by people through science and reason;
  • the lives of people who have worked to make the world a better place;
  • our thoughts and experiences.

We are glad we can come together to help and support each other in our efforts to grow and live good lives.
