A spiritual community for all: advancing justice and embracing diversity with love and acceptance
Carol Burrus


Our Religious Educator, Carol Burrus, oversees our Religious Education Programs for children, youth and adults. She brings a wealth of professional experience in non-profit volunteer coordination, family therapy and elementary music education, as well as education in psychology, social work and teaching. Carol enjoys creating programs that take individual members and families toward personal and spiritual growth, build our church community and lead us into new possibilities for ourselves and the world beyond our walls. She can be contacted by telephone at 713-526-5200 or by e-mail at carol@firstuu.org.

The Religious Education Team for Children and Youth provides essential lay support for the Religious Educator and RE programs and events for children and youth, as well as serving as a creative think-tank for policy and programs. The committee works on improving curricula and provides ongoing assessment of our annual events to make them more vital, inclusive, and meaningful. Members usually commit to a two-year cycle. The current team consists of Kelly & Sara Brown. Please let Carol know if you want to be involved.

Our Family Ministry Program includes Parent’s Night Out, an opportunity for parents to get to know each other and GO OUT! While children are taken care of at the church.
