Religious Exploration (RE)

First Unitarian Universalist Church of Winnipeg offers childcare for children under four, “RE” for children four to twelve, and programming for youth (13-19). Continue reading, below, for information about Children’s RE. Read more about Youth, here. We have suspended childcare
during the pandemic .

Unitarian Universalist religious exploration affirms, equips, and accompanies parents and caregivers as their children’s primary religious educators. We support families of all descriptions and are enjoying connecting with families beyond Winnipeg during the pandemic.

Children are invited and welcome to attend whole-church online worship on Sunday mornings followed, if you’d like, by fellowship in small groups (Zoom break-out rooms). Please visit our Zoom Connections page for the current Zoom invitation.

Connection, Care, and Community

Our theme for 2021-22 is Connection, Care, and Community, which we foster through emails from our Director of Lifespan Faith Development (DLFD); quarterly care packages from our Religious Exploration (RE) Committee; and monthly family-focused events that are open to the whole church community.

Sunday October 31

Andrea’s final day with the congregation; we’ll celebrate and say farewell during the service.

Child Dedications

In Unitarian Universalist tradition, when we dedicate children we celebrate their life, their place in their family, and in the congregation. As a community, we covenant to support the family, and to share our wisdom, counsel, and love as the child grows as one of us.

Children may be dedicated at any age. Those who’ve been dedicated elsewhere and children who have new names and/or would like to be rededicated with their correct gender are welcome.

Please complete this form to take part in the service this year.
