Sunday Morning Adult RE          Small Group Ministries     Children’s Religious Exploration         New Member Class        Ethical Eating

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.

If you would like to learn more about any of our programs or volunteer your time and expertise, contact Tiffany Sapp at rec@uuofbaycounty.com

Sunday Morning Adult RE: What We Choose: Ethics for Unitarian Universalists

Unitarian Universalism is a path of deeds, not creeds. We believe our choices and actions matter. We believe the measure of our religion is the way we live our principles in our day-to-day lives. But how do we decide what course of action to follow when a situation is complex and the moral course is unclear? Where do we turn for guidance that will help us fulfill our own wish to live a moral life? This program invites participants to focus attention on the moral and ethical questions that arise or have arisen in their lives, including challenges not yet perceived or acknowledged, and explore the ethical frameworks that can help in sorting through a dilemma.  (learn more)

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.  (learn more)
