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!

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are currently offering at-home on-demand RE lessons and activities on our website. These include readings, discussion questions, videos and hands-on activities. 

Our current program for Summer 2020 is called “Wonder World: Nature, Science and the Interdependent Web” Science and Nature our two strands in the interdependent web that holds our Universe together and helps us explain how and why things exist and happen. Both are part of our “wonder world.”Summer is a time to get outside and to explore our environment. And we can still do that, even with safety guidelines. Each week, we’ll offer an activity that gets you outside and gets your hands dirty, and one that explores science from a UUKids perspective (with an engaging video!).

You’ll find details on this page each week. 

In Spring 2020, we offered the popular program, “Horton Hears A UU: Life Lessons from Dr. Seuss.” Full lessons, resources, and details from March 22 – May 24 remain on-demand and are archived below.
