Religious Exploration Schedule:

Sunday mornings at 10am:

Playroom (ages 0-5) & Religious Exploration for Children & Youth (ages 6-14)

The Playroom is open 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!

Every Sunday at 10am, 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.

Religious Exploration for April 2019

Theme: Curiosity

May 19:
This week, the children will be preparing with crafts and games for our upcoming event: Family Fun Fest: Night of the Super Heroes!  See below for more details.  Please RSVP here: Family Fun Fest Invitation

SPECIAL EVENT: MAY 24, 6-8PM: FAMILY FUN FEST

You are invited to UFP’s 3rd Family Fun Fest: Night of the Super Heroes!
Once a season, the Gr. 5-8’s in our RE Program plan a party, and this time, they chose the theme of Super Heroes!

The Grade 5-8’s are invited to come at 5pm to help set up the food, games, crafts and decorations.

This event is free! A superhero themed dinner will be provided. Once we are done eating together, the grown ups will go upstairs for some time with Rev. Julie while the children stay downstairs and continue to party heroically.

This time, we encourage everyone to come dressed up as a super hero!

Please RSVP as soon as possible and let us know if you have any food allergies that we should be aware of.

Thursday evenings in Religious Exploration:

Senior Youth Group (youth grades 9–12): The Senior Youth group meets weekly, September – end of June, on Thursdays at 7:30 pm in our downstairs youth room. Youth Group begins meeting again on Thursday Sept. 13th 2018, 7:30pm. The group follows school schedule and does not meet on Thursdays during summer, winter and March breaks and during exam weeks.

Throughout the year UFP Senior Youth have opportunities to travel to weekend Youth Conferences at UU congregations in cities such as Ottawa, Kingston and Montreal – and to sexuality education, OWL (Our Whole Lives)weekend workshops.

Help in the Religious Exploration Program:

There are many 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 week, and depends on the role you are interested in filling.

Please contact Gloria Proctor-Bennett, rec.peterborough@gmail.com, our interim DRE.
