Registration for Children and Youth in Religious Exploration
A Warm New Year Welcome for Families at U2C3!
Greetings, U2C3 Families,
We are delighted to extend a warm welcome to you and your children, inviting you to be an integral part of our vibrant community for the 2023-2024 religious exploration year.
This Year’s Theme: “Journeying Together: Exploring Faith, Love, and Community”
In the upcoming year, we will embark on a journey exploring profound themes of faith, love, and community. Our aim is to nurture your child’s spiritual growth while cultivating a strong sense of belonging and togetherness. At U2C3, we celebrate diversity and encourage questions, recognizing that every spiritual journey is unique and valuable. We meet every Second Sunday of each month after the Story for all ages.
Keep a lookout for precise dates, venues, and any additional events in our weekly newsletter and website updates throughout the year. We eagerly await this faith-filled journey with you and your family.
With Warm Regards,
Administrator and Director of Religious Exploration (RE)
Register your children or youth for Religious Exploration—Fall 2023/Spring 2024!
To participate in this year’s Religious Exploration programming, fill out our registration form here. We strive to provide a welcoming space for all, offering spiritual elements to help foster UU faith development and personal growth. Sunday morning programs for children and youth are available for ages 6 months – 12th grade. After the story for all ages during worship, children and youth can join our relaxed one-room schoolhouse. Registration is ongoing throughout the year. Contact our DRE, Hanna Kiely, at REdirector@uucorpus.org for any questions.
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.
Explorers: Ages 6 months to 4 years The childcare room will remain unstaffed until we can hire a new childcare coordinator but will remain open for those who may need the space during Sunday worship.
Seekers: Our Children’s Chapel is for grades 1st – 4th (5 Years+)
Pioneers: Upper Elementary is for grades 4th–7th.
Voyagers: Youth Group is for grades 8th–12th.
When we have a critical mass of youth, we will meet on the 1st and 3rd Fridays 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 4:30 p.m. and runs for an hour and a half.
U2C3 membership is not required for registration, but registration is required for participation in children and youth RE. We run a background check on all volunteers and staff working with children and youth.
