Our Religious Exploration programs encourage inquiring minds, builds self-identity, and instills a mindset that motivates the children’s thoughts and actions beyond Sunday mornings. We strive to provide our children with an environment that elicits compassion, empowerment, and self-reflection, as well as promotes justice, acceptance, and a desire to seek and speak their truth! We teach the kids about their inherent responsibility to advocate and put forth action that creates visible change, as a vital addition to simply lending an ear, a hand, and a shoulder to cry on.

Our Religious Exploration programs are values-based and are designed to enrich the spiritual lives of children, youth, and families. We strive to help one another grow in spiritual practice, deepen understanding and respect for our religiously diverse world, and live UU principles in daily life. We encourage parents and guardians to ask questions, visit classrooms, and participate in a variety of programs to support spiritual growth. We look forward to working with you to nurture the spiritual lives of our children and youth!
