Our team of Volunteers and Instructors is committed to serving Children, Youth, and Adults. Guided by our shared principles as Unitarian Universalists, we provide an atmosphere that facilitates spiritual and ethical development for all ages in a safe and welcoming environment.
Children’s Religious Exploration
CHALICE CHILDREN: Children in Pre-K through 1st grade (about Ages 4-7) are served in our Chalice Children’s class. Chalice children learn they are cherished in our community of faith. They are also introduced to our shared principles as Unitarian Universalists.
ROOTS AND SHOOTS: Elementary school-aged children take part in our Roots and Shoots Class. The Mill Creek Roots and Shoots are a chapter of Jane Goodall’s international youth organization dedicated to helping animals, the environment and the human community.
Youth Religious Exploration
COMING OF AGE / O.W.L. : Beginning at about age 12-14, youth engage in, life changing experiences on a yearly rotating basis. The Coming of Age Class (designed to help young people explore and sort out their own ethical and religious identity) and Our Whole Lives (O.W.L.), designed to help young people make informed and responsible decisions about sexual health and see themselves as sacred beings.
YRUU: High School aged youth take part in our YRUU (Young Religious Unitarian Universalists) group, designed to teach leadership skills and provide opportunities for community service and social action.
The Mill Creek Adult Religious Exploration (RE) Program helps adults to awaken us to the power of love by using the richness of stories to encourage one another. Our program encourages an ongoing process of spiritual growth. Adult RE classes usually meet on Sundays beginning at 9 a.m. in the MacArtor Library. Classes are open to all and drop-ins are welcome.
