The UUCUV offers a religious exploration program for children & youth to explore personal divinity, world religions, ritual, meditation, prayer, love, inclusivity, social justice, environmental stewardship, living in community and what it means to be a Unitarian Universalist.
Due to the pandemic, all our gatherings are currently virtual on Zoom.
Sunday Religious Exploration for Children & Youth
April 21 message: We are taking a break from our structured programs via Zoom. Jenny Albee is stepping down from her current role as Zoom RE Teacher. She is continuing on with the newly formed RE team, which is in the process of envisioning what comes next!
In Normal times...
Religious Exploration (RE) classes take place during the 10 am Worship Services on Sundays. Before the service, your family will be greeted in the entryway by the Director of Religious Exploration, Laura Moberg, who will ask you to fill out an information sheet, and answer any questions you may have about the program.
The children start with their families in the Sanctuary, where they experience worship as part of the larger community. They participate in Chalice Lighting, singing with the congregation, storytelling, and then collect food and personal care items for our friends and neighbors using The Haven food shelf. At this time, the children go with their teachers to the RE classrooms and continue their spiritual exploration in a way that is developmentally appropriate to them. Parents and guardians can replenish their spirits in the service, and then enjoy social time at coffee hour, while the children continue their lessons until 11:30am.
