Welcome to our Children’s Religious Exploration (CRE) Program. We pride ourselves on offering a welcoming, supportive, progressive religious exploration for our children and we look forward to your family being a part of our “village.”

Our classes help children and youth to deepen their understanding of our UU faith, of their individual uniqueness, of the religiously diverse world in which we live, and of their responsibility to care for this magnificent earth we call “home.” We have a mantra in our CRE program: Community trumps curriculum! More than anything, we want all children to feel welcomed here, to feel “at home,” and to know in their bones that this is a safe place for them to explore and expand who they are. Fortunately, we have great curricula and committed adults to accompany them on their journey!

Each year we enroll over 300 children in our CRE program. We cannot provide the quantity and quality of programming without the commitment and contributions of parents. All CRE parents are expected to volunteer in some capacity and that’s a win/win. Our program benefits by your time and talent, and hopefully your life is enriched by the connections you make along the way. Be sure to review the list of options and select volunteer opportunities that speak to your interests.

I’m looking forward to our time together this year. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.

Registration for the 2024-2025 year will open April 1, 2024.

Joyfully yours,

Leslie Ross
Director of Children’s Religious Exploration
