What We Offer Through the Lifespan
We provide children, youth, young adults, and adults an opportunity to explore, reflect, and learn in a nurturing spiritual community. Unitarian Universalist religious exploration programs offer all ages, inspiring:
- Ethical growth – internalizing enduring values like justice, equity, and compassion, and gaining tools to act on them in everyday life.
- Social growth – connecting with peers and people of all ages on a deeper level. Finding acceptance among people who see beyond the superficial.
- Spiritual growth – feeling a connection with the sacred within, among, and beyond us.
Religious exploration programs include more than classes.
Children and youth religious exploration programs at UUCC are undergoing a metamorphosis as we try to offer engaging spiritual experiences and community connection for our families with children and youth. Our congregation welcomes children and youth to enjoy and participate in our Sunday services with their families. To supplement this experience, two or three times each month, we offer personalized experiences oriented towards our young members and friends in the CYRE wing during Sunday services. During these experiences you may see children participating in social action, holding their own service, preparing a performance, exploring stories of ethics, spiritual traditions, and social justice, crafting, playing, and so much more.
The volunteers of the children and youth religious exploration program plan events and experiences for Sunday mornings, weekends, and weekday evenings. Adult programs are usually offered on afternoons or evenings.
