Here’s what’s happening in our Religious Exploration (RE) Program January-June 2018:

Sunday mornings 10-11:30am

Playroom (ages 0-5): The Playroom is open on Sundays from 9:45am-11:15am. It is staffed by trained youth from the UFP community, many of whom are members of our Senior Youth Group.  Young children are always welcome to stay in the sanctuary during the service – please do whatever works best for your family!

Children & Youth (ages 6-14): join our Religious Exploration (RE) facilitators in experiential activities that explore our UU principles

  1. Each and every person is important.
  2. All people should be treated fairly.
  3. In our Fellowship, we accept one another and learn together.
  4. Each person is free to search for what is true and right.
  5. Everyone deserves the right to speak out and vote on things that matter to them.
  6. We work for a peaceful, fair, and free world.
  7. We care for our planet Earth and every living thing that shares it with us.

Sundays January 7th, 14th, 21st & 28th: 

January’s Theme is A Community of Intention. On each Sunday this month. the children and youth will be invited to explore the theme through experiential activities using drama, games, art and music.
