Register your children/youth for Religious Exploration (RE) – Fall 2022/Spring 2023
Children’s and Youth Religious Exploration
Register Now for the 2022-23 Religious Exploration (RE) Year!
If you would like your children or youth to participate in this year’s Religious Exploration programming, please fill out our registration form here. This is a quick way for us to get to know more about you and make sure your family’s needs are met when you and your loved ones are in our space, and so we all can stay connected this year and beyond. We use our registration list to communicate about both current and future offerings. RE Registration is ongoing throughout the year. We strive to provide a welcoming space for all. We offer various spiritual elements in each of our spaces to help foster UU faith development and personal growth.
Sunday Morning for Children and Youth
Here at U2C3, our mission states: Growing in spirit and faith to inspire acts of radical inclusion, justice, and lovingkindness. With this in mind, our Religious Exploration programs set an intentional focus on FUUN and supportive connections that inspire open minds, loving hearts, and helping hands.
To ensure everyone’s safety, all children and youth present at church on Sundays will be required to be seated with their families during the story for all ages. Busy packets containing quiet activities will be available for younger children as they enter the sanctuary. After the story for all ages, we will invite all children and youth to join our relaxed, one-room schoolhouse out on the patio (socially distanced or masked while in our Raspberry room. The childcare room will remain unstaffed but will be open for those who may need the space during Sunday worship.
Explorers: Ages 6 months – 4 years
Seekers: Our Children’s Chapel is for grades 1st – 4th (5 Years+)
Pioneers: Upper Elementary is for grades 4th – 7th

When we have a critical mass of youth we will meet on the 1st and 3rd Friday of each month. The 1st Friday is social/game night and the 3rd Friday is for spiritual development and social justice. This group starts at 5:30 pm and runs for an hour and a half.
Each month beginning in January be on the lookout for our RE Connections eNewsletter! This is for U2C3 RE families and friends, it is filled with fun activities, Crafts, Lessons, Spiritual Practices, Discussion topics, Music, Stories, and much more.
