Religious Exploration

Through the Religious Exploration (RE) program, All Souls seeks to provide opportunities for spiritual development over a person’s entire life.


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 is overseen by our Minister.


See below for details on the major aspects of our RE programs. A schedule of upcoming activities and meetings is available in the ASUUC Weekly eLetter and in the All Souls Member Calendar.

RE for Children and Youth

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

Children and youth normally stay in the service until we have the Time for All Ages. Then children may go downstairs and participate in RE programs.

Nursery-Pre-K: We are back to meeting in person again. Nursery-Pre-K is led by Kristina Barnett. We do fun games, crafts, and activities.

Kindergarten through 6th Grade: Our elementary class is currently working on a curriculum called “Superhero Academy” designed by Meredith Plummer, Director of Lifespan Faith Development at First Unitarian Church of Cincinnati. Though we often work on other activities during holidays or special events.

Youth in grades 7-12: Our youth class is led by Birgitta Day. We chill, reflect, talk and build connections and friendships. We are looking forward to familiar and new youth. Please join and stay tuned for more information as the school year takes off!

Youth Group/YRUU: Exciting! YRUU meets weekly in-person again.

From 10:30 to 11:45 a.m. we chill, reflect, talk and build connections and friendships. We are looking forward to familiar and new youth. Please join and stay tuned for more information as the school year takes off!

OWL (Our Whole Lives)

High Plains Unitarian Universalist Church is working on offering an OWL class for grades 4-6. However, this class has been postponed. Please stay tuned for future information.

Here at All Souls, we are in the initial planning stage of getting an OWL class set up for older kids. We’re currently reaching out to trained OWL teachers and working with people who may be excited to become OWL teachers.

The Young Adult program at All Souls is focused on supporting post-graduation high school seniors as they enter and experience young adulthood and on providing young adults up to their late 30-ies with opportunities to ask, learn, celebrate their individuality, and enjoy each other building a supportive community.

Affinity Groups let participants pursue a common interest in a format that works best for them. Group participants set their own meeting schedules and run their meetings on their own. Generally, these groups meet once a month, but groups can choose to meet more or less often.

Covenant Groups enable participants to share their beliefs on a predetermined subject in a guided setting where all participants pledge to support respectful sharing. These groups meet twice a month.  Educational Classes include seminars and other types of classes covering a variety of UU-based and other subjects. Meeting schedules depend on the class, and classes are run by the class leaders. To sign up, get more information, or suggest new activities, please contact our Minister.
