The Religious Exploration for Children and Youth programs (cradle through high school) are overseen by our Director of Religious Exploration and implemented in cooperation with our RE Team. The Religious Exploration for Adults program, Faith Forward, is overseen by our Minister.
We seek an outcome of respectful, responsible, life-loving kids who know they are valued for all of who they are and are ready to show others the same deep acceptance. In our program we offer a brief introduction to Unitarian Universalist values, worship, and lore, as well as opportunities for children to socialize and converse in a safe and age-appropriate, fun atmosphere. Parents are welcome to check out the program with their children! We often spend time outside, and our children usually dress very informally. Stay tuned for the 2022-2023 RE program brochure!
RE Registration: Please register your children attending RE, 1st-12th grade, so we can better serve our families. We ask that you complete this registration form so that we can keep our team and our families informed and updated. All communication will be electronically sent, so your registration is greatly appreciated! All RE programming is free of charge.
Programming and activities
Nursery-Pre-K: Our youngest UUs learned through our monthly YouTube videos. The content is geared toward Pre-K and Kinder kids, but younger and older kids may also enjoy the fun video! Over the past year, we produced one video a month for our little ones! If you would like to revisit any of these 2020-2021 videos, use the links below:
