RE Prayer FlagsWelcome to the Melrose Unitarian Universalist Church School!

Click HERE for our “RE Weekly Update” during the church year.

Our Sunday School programming reflects our care and planning to develop multi-age Sunday morning classes that accomplish our goal of providing our children with a safe and accepting environment in which to explore spirituality that supports Unitarian Universalist values and their engagement in the wider world. Our nursery is staffed with our Nursery Caregiver and church volunteers every week.

Our RE program is a cooperative one that relies on everyone’s involvement to work and thrive. Please take some time to look at the volunteer form and see what level of commitment you can give, whether as a classroom leader, a helper for special events, or the many other ways you can give time to the programming. Training, support, and resources will be provided for teachers, so please check out what’s being planned and let us know how you can be involved. New families are asked to wait a year before volunteering. 

Please fill out a form to register your children for our RE program, and return the form to the Church Office at 70 West Emerson Street, Melrose, MA 02176

Below are some photos of our children after their Worship Circle creating their own dyed prayer flags with help from adult volunteers. The final product – a beautiful string of colorful decorated prayer flags – is shown at the top of this page, as we proudly display our children’s creativity across the front of our church building.
