Religious Exploration – Children
“Children cannot be talked into a beautiful faith. Whatever experience contributes to making one love life, anticipates and determines a faith that embodies that love. The basic emphasis in education, therefore, must be on the process itself, on the environment of social harmony.”
— Angus H. MacLean
Spiritual Growth for Children
The Midcoast UU Fellowship brings children together for meaningful worship, spiritual growth, exploration and learning. We want children to personally experience our Unitarian Universalist faith and all the wonderful ideals that it embodies as well as the wisdom of other faith traditions.
A child’s experience at the Midcoast Fellowship is just one aspect of their religious development. While every child will participate in enriching and meaningful programs among us, it is at home where the spiritual development of each child will blossom.
Welcome to Religious Exploration (RE) where we learn by exploring!
At Midcoast Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (MUUF), we welcome all families regardless of configuration. We want you and your children to love MUUF and to feel excited to come explore, learn and grow. We hope you will help to put our UU principles into action, making the world a more caring, loving, equitable and sustainable place to live. We also want to offer you tools to bring the love and grace of this faith into your home. Register your children to receive up-to-date information about opportunities and to help us with planning: RE registration form.
Note: If you have registered in previous years and are already receiving information via email, there is no need to register again.
Current Offerings 2022-2023
Join the YoUUth Explorers! This program is designed for children grades 4-7. We meet each Wednesday from 6 – 7:30 PM at the Friends Meeting House in Damariscotta. We gather for a short worship service based on the theme for the month and explore these themes with activities, crafts and games. Snacks are provided.
This year we are celebrating the Wheel of the Year special days, like the Winter Solstice, Spring Equinox and May Day. Families and friends join us to learn about and celebrate these seasonal passages with ritual, food and activities.
Sunday Morning Worship
Families are invited to worship with us each Sunday at 10:30 AM at the Skidompha Library. We welcome your children with their gurgles and wiggles. We have a childcare provider who provides a structured learning environment in the library Children’s Room for those families who have active young children.
