When we can meet in person, we provide childrenyouth, and adults an opportunity to explore, reflect, and learn in a nurturing spiritual community. Unitarian Universalist religious exploration (RE) programs offer all ages, inspiring:

  • Ethical growth – internalizing enduring values like justice, equity, and compassion, and gaining tools to act on them in everyday life.
  • Social growth – connecting with peers and people of all ages on a deeper level. Finding acceptance among people who see beyond the superficial.
  • Spiritual growth – feeling a connection with the sacred within, among, and beyond us.

RE programs are typically offered on Sunday mornings, but they often include more than classes. Children explore the Giving Garden and youth design and carry out acts of community service. Many programs incorporate social justice activities, worship opportunities, service trips, fellowship, and fun.

Our religious educators and minister lead many of our congregations’ lifespan programs. Parents and other members of the congregation often lead them, too. Teaching can be a very fulfilling way to deepen one’s own faith.

Safety for children and youth is paramount and it’s part of our moral obligation to seek parental consent for programs with sensitive topics such as sexuality. In all matters, Unitarian Universalist religious exploration works to affirm, equip, and accompany parents and legal guardians as children’s primary religious educators.

We invite you to explore these pages and contact our minister with your questions.
