Celebrating our Religious Exploration Program

The Childcare Space at UUCW (0-4 years)

In The Childcare Space, our little ones listen to stories, sing songs, and have fun playing with their friends. Read more here.

Explorers (grades k-4)

Using materials from Soul Matters and UU curricula, children explore topics such as heritage, generosity, justice and equity, and interdependence. Each week’s gathering includes a chalice lighting, check-in, story, discussion, activity, and closing words. We encourage children to explore their own big questions. All of our programming aligns with the principles and sources recognized by Unitarian Universalists.

Builders (grades 5 & 6)

Children in this age group will explore the monthly themes which align with our UU Principles plus additional special programming.

Coming of Age (grades 7 & 8)

The COA program is a UU rite of passage experience which incorporates self-reflection/ team building/ mentored learning/ challenges/ interaction with UU community/outreach/fun. By the final service, each participant will be able to answer questions that are true to themselves (at that moment in their lives): Who Am I? What Do I Care About? What Do I Believe? What Do I Want to Stand Up for In the World?

Our Whole Lives (OWL) Human Sexuality Curriculum (teen gr 8-9) (elementary 4th and 5th) will be offered during the 24/25 church year.

OWL is designed to help children gain the knowledge, life principles, and skills they need to express their sexuality in life enhancing ways. This curriculum is an expression of the belief that religious communities, community organizations, and schools can form meaningful partnerships with parents to provide positive and responsible sexuality education.
