Children’s Religious Exploration
Our RE (Religious Exploration) program
is held on the FIRST and THIRD Sunday of each month
On hiatus until fall
All children are WELCOME!
We promote acceptance of all in a safe environment
Would you like your children to have basic instruction in moral behavior without being taught the dogmas of any particular religion?
The Grants Pass Unitarian Universalist religious education program may be the solution you are seeking. Through stories and activities, your children will learn about many different faiths as well as the seven principles that inform our lives as UUs.
In an effort to provide quality religious education for the children of our community the Education Team has developed a consulting service.
Parents are encouraged and invited to share their thoughts and desires as to what they wish their children to be learning and experiencing through the UU Religious Education offering.
Contact our RE Director– Denise Bales– to arrange a time to meet.

Seven Principles for UU Children:
Each person is important.
Be kind in all you do.
We’re free to learn together, and search for what is true.
All people need a voice.
Build a fair and peaceful world.
We care for our planet Earth.
The theme of each session relates to one of these seven principles, which mirror the adult versions. These themes are expressed through stories, discussions, music, and art. We emphasize the importance of the individual, and many activities develop self-worth as well as the enjoyment of working harmoniously in a group.
We also explore the religions and cultures of other countries. If there is a celebration going on somewhere else in the world, we are likely to join in.
