Our growing Religious Exploration program provides many different opportunites for adults and children to learn and grow. The Unitarian Universalist Principles of “acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations” and “a free and responsible search for truth and meaning” guide the development of our religious exploration program. We respect that each person has their own path to walk, and we are here to support this process of exploration and personal growth.

Children’s Religious Exploration
Our children’s program meets at the same time as the adult’s regular Sunday morning worship service: from 10:30am to 11:30am. Every Sunday your kids can expect to do a chalice lighting to create a sense of beginning, a story, a game or project to enforce the lesson of the story, and (as time allows) an opportunity to individually explore the lesson through creative expression like play dough, building blocks, drawing with crayons, markers or chalk, and bead craft for the older kids.
