We believe that life-long learning and growth is an important, intentional process. Indeed our principles encourage us to an ongoing search for our truths and to constantly be reflecting and making meaning of our lives. Therefore Religious Education is for all of us. Together we learn how to live our lives as Unitarian Universalists; how to make meaning of the situations we find ourselves in; and how to ground our actions in our principles.
We are excited to offer programs for all ages designed for learning and growth as we explore our truths together.
New opportunities are developed frequently and schedules may change. The best way to stay up-to-date with all of our learning opportunities is to check out our website https://www.uufnn.org/learning/; explore the RE bulletin board in the hallway near our coffee gathering; or reach out to our acting Director of Lifespan Religious Education.

We also ask that all children and youth participating in any of our programs are registered. This helps us ensure the safety of all participants. If you would like your child to participate, please fill out a registration form, available at the Greeters Table or from the RE Liaison on any Sunday morning. You can also find the form online: https://www.uufnn.org/learning/children-and-youth/registration/

As UUs reflect on racism and our role in upholding white supremacy, an 8th principle has been proposed: Journeying toward spiritual wholeness by working to build a diverse multicultural Beloved Community by our actions that accountably dismantle racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our institutions.
