Faith Formation Programs

The purpose of Faith Formation Programs at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Durango is to nurture and affirm each individual’s sense of identity, self-esteem and tolerance.  To do this, we incorporate the study of our cultural and religious heritage, world religions, moral values, and social responsibility.  Programs are available for all ages.

Thank you to all of the volunteer children’s and youth Faith Formation teachers. Your presence and practice is vital to our community.

Teachers and volunteers are greatly needed in our children’s and youth programs. Contact Lisa McCorry for more information.
