Unitarian Universalist Church of Willmar Children's Religious Education/Sunday School

We provide religious education for our middle and high school children at 10:10 AM on Sunday, elementary-aged children meet at 11:15. Like the one room schoolhouse, emphasis is away from the teacher toward our questioning, creative, intuitive children.
