Religious Exploration Calendars are posted here monthly, with a mix between RE classes in the Rainbow Room and All Ages Services. We follow the Soul Matters monthly themes along with the rest of the congregation.
YUU (youth group) meets in the Universe Room on the First and Third Sundays of the month.
On Sundays when RE meets, families are invited to sit together in the Sanctuary for the first part of our service at 10:30 AM. After a Time for All Ages is shared, children are invited to join RE volunteers in the Rainbow Room for Religious Exploration. After service, everyone meets on the playground for snacks and pickup.
Their unique traits bring incredible value to our community, as well as the world around us. Children and youth at the UUFA are provided a space for play, reflection, curiosity, and courage. The family is the primary spiritual caregiver, and the UUFA wants to support and reinforce what is being learned at home. The UUFA will build on these values and provide a space for learning about and engaging with the racial and social justice issues that our congregation is committed to unpacking.
Families are always welcome in the Sanctuary, where we have a Small Sanctuary space for anyone who prefers to sit on the floor or move around during service.
The Seedlings (nursery) room serves children aged five years and younger, which is staffed by our incredible childcare providers and volunteers. We look forward to re-opening our Seedlings room in late November!
We require volunteers and staff who work with children and youth to be vaccinated against Covid. We’ve always required Religious Exploration volunteers to have been a part of our community for at least six months and pass a background check. We also require that every group of kids have two adults present.
If families are attending services with their kids and need to step away from the worship service with infants or children, they may watch the service in the Fellowship Hall while tending to their child’s needs. A private place for nursing parents is available, too.
Register for Fall 2022-23 Religious Exploration here.
As our world is re-shaped by Covid, we’re planning safe and satisfying social gatherings and classes for kids and intergenerational groups. Look for less structured classes with more time for kids to connect with each other and caring adults.
