Religious Exploration Program
Due to Shelter in Place Ordinances, all RE Classes and activities are currently taking place online. Please see our “Stay Connected“ page for more information about virtual activities for RE.
The Typical Sunday Morning Schedule
When you arrive at UUFA, you’ll find the Religious Exploration (RE) Sign-in Table on the left side of the lobby, just past the Visitor’s Table. Sign your child in to class so our teachers know how many children to expect. If you are a returning member, we ask that you register your child.
Children’s Religious Exploration
Grades Pre-K through 5th
Children’s Worship Service (CWS)
On the first Sunday each month, Kelli McConnell, Coordinator of Religious Exploration (or another RE leader) conducts our Children’s Worship Service for Pre-K to 5th graders. CWS incorporates singing led by our Children’s Music Leaders and typical worship elements, including storytelling and creative activities. Each CWS introduces the children to the congregation’s monthly theme focus. Children gather in the Sanctuary and are sung out to the classroom. Parents, please pick your child up by 11:35 am.
RE classes for the Pre-K to 5th grade age levels take place during the 10:30 am Worship Service. On the 1st, 2nd and 4th Sundays children gather with their parents in the Sanctuary to enjoy the first 15 minutes of worship together and then “sing out” to their Religious Exploration program. Classroom activities last from 10:45-11:30 am. Parents, please check your child out of RE by 11:35 am.
All Ages Worship
Children stay in the Sanctuary during our All-Ages Worship Services, which are usually on the 3rd Sunday of the month. All-Ages Worship is designed to be more fun and interactive, we keep children and youth in mind while planning these monthly services.
Youth Group – Small Group Ministry
Youth gather together in the “Youth Universe” Room on and the 1st and 4th Sunday of the month from 10:30 am to noon and on the 3rd Wednesday of each month from 5:45-7:00 pm.
Each Sunday during RE Classes or the CWS children have an opportunity to donate to our local partner, Food 2 Kids, a program of the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia which assists children who are at risk of hunger by sending them home from school with grocery bags of easy-to-prepare foods. Please encourage your children to bring their change or dollar bills for this love offering.
