Children’s Religious Exploration
Our RE (Religious Exploration) program
is held on ZOOM the FIRST Sunday of the month
Beginning December 6th
All children are WELCOME!
We promote acceptance of all in a safe environment
Our Intern Minister, Alison Duren-Sutherland, in partnership with Religious Explorations teachers from Rogue Valley UU Fellowship, will be offering a 10am Zoom opportunity for children and youth from the three congregations of the Southern Oregon UU Partnership (SOUUP) on the first Sunday of the month, beginning December 6th. Kid SOUUP will include Chalice Lighting, Roses & Thorns (sharing our joys and sorrows), and more!
Registration is required. This just means you have to enter your email and name prior to the meeting so we can track interest and participation and keep this a safe space for our kids. Register here: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZEpc-GrqDorGdeUZPHpxPPr2BaSEsigOU2U After registering, you will receive a confirmation email with the link to join the meeting. If you’re interested, we encourage you to register, even if you’re not sure you can make it. That way, we know you’re interested and can contact you for our next Kid SOUUP Zoom event. You can even register while the meeting is happening and join right then.
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.
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.
