The great end in religious instruction is not to stamp our minds on the young, but to stir up their own: not to make them see with our eyes , but to look inquiringly and steadily with their own.        — W. E. Channing

Faith Formation at First Unitarian Church of Des Moines is a place of connection and growth at every age. We offer liberal religious exploration, drawn from our Unitarian Universalist traditions, which affirms the great spiritual truths of all religions.
Our goals are to develop:

  • an enjoyment and appreciation of worship
  • reverence for the sacred and all life
  • a rich and meaningful spiritual life
  • an enduring connection with Unitarian Universalism
