Sunday Morning Exploration Groups
The journey begins in preschool. Here children explore the inside and outside of our meetinghouse and get to know their teachers, ministers and friends in the congregation. They learn about our flaming chalice, the symbol of Unitarian Universalism, and engage in experiences that help each find their own special place at First Parish.
Note: Grade combinations beyond First Steps are adapted, as class size requires.
The next step is an exploration of the Seven Principles, the cornerstone of our Unitarian Universalist covenant. We use these as a compass to guide us as we strive to live in the world in a just and peaceful way.
As explorers have used the stars to guide them, our UU Kids are inspired by the exceptional lives of Unitarian Universalists past and present, whose courageous spirit and fearless goodwill illuminate a path toward a fairer and more just world.
Our adventurers will make excursions to historical New England sites with a new perspective. From the settlement in Plymouth to Henry Thoreau’s cabin in Concord, they each will find a personal connection through Unitarian Universalism to revolutionaries in our country and in our faith.
The faith exploration expands to a world religions program to deepen youth’s understanding of the dynamic, fascinating, and varied world in which they live. It seeks to broaden their knowledge of humanity and embolden their spiritual search.
