Explorers (Preschool to Kindergarten) | Room 212
We Are Many, We are One offers young children the opportunity to learn about their religious community and tradition, as well as the freedom to discover and express their uniqueness. The four units in this program encourage children to develop their sense of identity and self-esteem within their Unitarian Universalist community and their world. The themes of “Many” and “One” — community and individuality, alike and different, humankind and me — provide a focal point.

Seekers (First to Fourth Grade) | Room 207
Faithful Journeys participants embark on a pilgrimage of faith, exploring how Unitarian Universalism translates into life choices and everyday actions. Through sessions structured around our UU Principles, we demonstrate that our Principles are not a dogma, but a credo that individuals affirm with many kinds of action. All sessions include hands-on activities as well as guided discussion, reflection, and self-expression to engage participants with various learning styles.
