Our faith’s seven principles and the values they represent form the core of our religious exploration for children.  One of these principles speaks of the importance of a “free and responsible search for truth and meaning.” We believe that this search for truth begins as soon as a child can think and continues throughout his or her entire lifetime. We support this search, and through religious exploration we give the information necessary to challenge and encourage each person to form their own beliefs and live by their own ethical codes.

TRUU offers religious exploration classes, with our RE leader Heather Rydell, for children ages 2-13 on Sunday mornings during the adult worship service. 

Coming in 2016: Coming of Age Program for 11-13 year olds (middle school age)

Religious ExplorationThe Seven Principles for Children:

1. Each person is important.
2. Be kind in all you do.
3. We’re free to learn together.
4. We search for what is true.
5. All people need a voice.
6. Build a fair and peaceful world.
7. We care for Earth’s lifeboat.

What Makes a Good Relationship?

At left is a photo from RE where the children responded to the question “What makes a good relationship?”  This topic was introduced by Florence at the beginning of the service when she recognized couples who had been together a long time.  (Click on the photo to enlarge)
Also, here are some photos of the children bathing the baby Buddha during a Sunday service.
