Children’s and Youth Religious Exploration

This SUNDAY in R.E. The Chalice Children talk about how our differences are interesting and special. The Roots and Shoots Friends begin a project. During the Worship Service, Youth will meet in the library to engage another session about Leadership. The Our Whole Lives class is off for the week. We will resume next Sunday (February 10) for a session on the subject of “lovemaking.”

Terry Vodery, Director of Religious Exploration

Mill Creek has a vibrant and active Religious Exploration program for Adults. We believe learning and faith development do not end with childhood, but are part of a lifelong process. Adult R.E. at Mill Creek is a welcoming place to encourage one another throughout our own journey of spiritual growth.

Whether you have been a Unitarian Universalist for many years or are new to the faith, chances are you’re curious about many issues and subjects that impact your life and the lives of others. Our team is committed to designing, evaluating, and overseeing adult faith development programs at Mill Creek.

Do you have an idea or a request for an adult workshop, class, or discussion group at Mill Creek? Contact Terry at dre@uusmc.org. We are committed to serving your needs!

Sunday morning Adult RE sessions are held every week in the MacArtor Library from 9:15-10:15 am. NO registration is required for Sunday mornings. Just drop in! Our new series, Spirit in Practice, begins this Sunday, January 27. We’ll be talking about ways of moving towards a richer and more meaningful Unitarian Universalist spirituality. In the coming weeks, the group will explore diverse spiritual practices and disciplines.

The following class requires online registration (this helps us to know how many participants we can expect to serve):

Waking Up White
This is a four-week workshop exploring the experience of growing up white. It will be a deep and challenging workshop, but will be framed by reflections on a common read of Debby Irving’s book, Waking Up White. Several copies will be available in the library. Mary Higgins leads the group on Sundays following worship 12:00-2:00 pm: February 10th – March 3rd, in the MacArtor Library.

“Shared Pulpit Workshop” This class will be offered again in the Fall. If you are interested in joining the next class, email the Religious Ed. Director at dre@uusmc.org.
