Our multigenerational liberal religious community is blessed by the curiosity, compassion, courage, and creativity of people of all ages, from babies to elders. Your family is welcome here in this church that recognizes the richness of our variety, our interdependence, our shared longing for peace and justice, and our common foundation of love and care.
We are a vibrant faith community, offering Sunday morning Religious Education classes and special programs for children, youth and families. Together, we seek to expand hearts and minds, prepare for and mark important milestones, and explore big questions and complex topics. Above all, we honor the worth and dignity, the uniqueness and the infinite potential in each one of them. As a community, we commit ourselves to nurturing the growth of our children and youth, and we celebrate them as important members of our church community.
A special welcome if you are visiting or planning to visit MVUUF! Please feel free to attend a class with our child, bring them to the worship service with you, or drop them off in their classroom while you attend a service. We also have a table in the foyer available for children to sit at and do activities during the service. Please arrive 10 minutes early and check in at the Welcome table if you and/or your child would like to visit a class, so we can get you signed in and settled.
We hope you will find a spiritual home for your whole family here, and that the experiences we share will strengthen, comfort and inspire you all as you seek to live lives of integrity, love, service and joy!

Ways to Help Your Child Thrive
When registering, please let us know of any comments you have about how we can help your child thrive in CYF programming. Please let us know about allergies and any concerns you may have regarding your child’s participation in CYF programming. We strive to make MN Valley a welcoming place, and we work together to ensure everyone’s needs are accommodated. This is something we are happy to do for one another as we seek to build an affirming, responsive religious community that reflects our values.
We Are a Cooperative Religious Education Program
Adults, children and youth learn and grow in religious community together. We depend on one another to create a vibrant experience for all ages! Each family is asked to support the program by serving on a volunteer teaching team. (This amounts to teaching approximately 8 times per year). Training, prepared materials, and staff support are provided. Sign Up Here
