For the 2018-2019 church year, Religious Explorations will offer various programs and activities to teach our children and youth about anti-racism, anti-oppression, and our multicultural world. They will explore the call that Unitarian Universalists have to help heal our world.

Sunday Morning Schedule:

10:15 — Nursery is open for infants through pre-school.

10:30 — All ages attend the worship service through the Story for All Ages.  The nursery is available for the youngest who may not want to attend the first part of the service.

10:45 — Children and Youth leave the service to attend their groups.

11:30 — Worship service ends. Refreshments and fellowship are available.

11:45 — The RE groups end their activities and will be finished with their classes.  Please do not interrupt the room when they are still in their groups. Children must be picked up from the nursery by this time.

Thematic Learning: SouthWest UU chooses a worship theme for each month.  Once per month the age groups spend some time learning about the theme for that month.

The themes that we will be coordinating in RE this year are:

September — Vocation
October — Formation
November — Gratitude
December — Peace
January — Grace
February — Surrender/Letting Go
March — Truth
April — Salvation/Wholeness
May — Mystery

To find more information about each age group please click on that age and you will be taken to a page with more detail.
