- 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.

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.
