Welcome to the 2016-2017 Religious Exploration (RE) program at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Lower Bucks. We are glad that you are considering our congregation as a religious home for your family.
A Unitarian Universalist (UU) education is about growing in the context of a supportive and affirming community. As UUs, we believe that there are many paths to the truth. We know that each person has a right to a free and responsible search for meaning, and we strive to support our young people as they begin that search for themselves.
A UU education allows our young people to form a strong UU identity. We want them to value the unique heritage of our liberal religious movement. We also want them to understand and appreciate the diversity of the world’s faith traditions.
We offer an open environment in which children can explore religious ideas in freedom, and deepen their own spiritual lives. We foster a sense of responsibility for building a better world, by modeling values of justice, compassion, and peacefulness.
Participants in our program are encouraged to challenge accepted ideas, as they arrive at their own answers to life’s most perplexing questions.
We offer a carefully planned curriculum, chances for reflection and discussion, worship with our multigenerational community, and the opportunity to form lifelong friendships. We offer the inspiration to turn faith into action through service to the larger community.
Through these experiences, we hope that our children and youth will grow in wisdom and understanding, and form a set of values that will provide a foundation for living well.
Our community is committed to the nurture of all those who come seeking a place to belong and be accepted, and you are welcome here.
