Emerson Chapel's Religious Education program celebrates lifelong learning and spiritual growth. It aims for participants to be spiritually fulfilled and compassionate members of local and global communities.
Emerson Chapel's Religious Education program doesn't dictate answers in the search for truth and meaning. It encourages children and adults to find their own. It helps parents provide a liberal religious education for their children.
Religious Education leaders adhere to Emerson Chapel's Safe Congregations policy, and each Religious Education program offers parents and other adults many volunteer opportunities.
Youth Religious Education
Adult Religious Education
Emerson Chapel's Sunday Adult RE programs are held after most services. These programs engage, educate, and challenge participants on a variety of topics, with frequent focus on ideas raised by the same morning's service.
Weekday Adult RE programs typically have a more consistent, specific focus than Sunday Adult RE programs. They also most always have an explicit aspect of building community and strengthening interpersonal relationships.
