Children & Youth

Welcome to Religious Exploration where we learn through exploring!

We offer opportunities for all ages, from birth to death, to experience, question, learn, grow and explore life’s big questions and mysteries. We are a family-friendly and welcoming liberal faith community. We strive to keep our church a safe and enjoyable place for all generations!

At First Universalist Church in Rockland (UUR), we welcome all families regardless of configuration. We want you and your children to love UUR 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.

We offer a wide-range of faith development opportunities throughout the year for all ages, and in many shapes and forms. This includes Sunday morning worship, overnights, mailings, shared programming with Midcoast Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, movie nights, sexuality education and UU Family kits. Programs and events are being updated and added as we learn more about the COVID virus and vaccinations are made available to all ages. For more information about our RE program, email:

Yours in Growing Faith,

Carney D. McRae, Director of Religious Exploration
