Religious Exploration

Welcome to our Religious Exploration program here at First Unitarian Society of Denver!
Families, children, and youth of all backgrounds are welcomed in our community, where we support you in connecting with and exploring your own spirituality.
Each Sunday, our children, youth, and families gather in the sanctuary for Time for All Ages, where we then encourage free-choice programming. Nursery and pre-school aged children are welcome to stay in worship and enjoy our Peaceful Play area if wanted, while our elementary aged children are also invited to join us in our outdoor space for community programming. Youth may also stay in and enjoy worship or join the Game Central area with our other youth and staff. 

Our Peaceful Play area is located in the service area to the left of the stage, while our Game Central area is located just outside the glass doors of the service sanctuary hall.

This Sunday in Religious Exploration
Time for All Ages (TFAA)

Join us in the sanctuary (or online!) at 10am as we gather together in community through TFAA. This week's TFAA we will be playing a large game of Magic Rock.

Afterwards, children and youth will be sung out of the sanctuary where then K-5th may join us for light programming or play in our peaceful playspace, while youth may stay in service or join our Youth Programs Coordinator for games and discussion.

Next RE Sunday - May 1st

Our 8 Principles

We as Unitarian Universalist affirm and practice 8 principles, which we hold as strong values and moral guides. While there were originally 7 principles, we adopted the 8th principle and will take the time to learn about all of them together during RE.

Register for RE

Parents need to enroll their children in the RE program. This helps us communicate upcoming events and changes to programming. It also helps us better manage our room resources. Our registration process is now 100% paperless. Please either register or visit our Welcome Table on Sundays.
