Here’s what’s happening in our Religious Exploration (RE) program.  If you have questions, our Director of Religious Exploration, Kate Huband (705-304-6186) will be happy to help.

Sunday mornings: 1o-11:30am

Religious Exploration (6-14 years old): Sunday mornings children aged 6 and up join our Religious Exploration (RE) facilitators in interactive activities exploring our UU principles:

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

Playroom (0-5 years old): Opens Sundays at 9:45 am. Staffed by trained members of our Senior Youth Group.   Children are also always welcome to stay in the sanctuary with their parent(s)/guardian(s).

Help in the Religious Exploration Program

There are a variety of ways you can support the religious exploration program. We are seeking seniors, adults, young adults and Senior Youth to help make this an extraordinary program for our treasured children and youth. The time commitment varies — it could be as little as once a year or as often as once a month, and depends on the role you are interested in filling.

Please reach out to Kate Huband (705-304-6186) if you are interested or have any questions.
