Religious Education for Children

Religious Education for Children


February 5, 2023

Our Rainbow Principles curriculum for 2022–23 will begin September 11 and we’ll start with learning about our chalice. The second and third week we’ll learn about covenant and create our own together. Children will have the opportunity to create their own chalice each week in September.
Class starts at 10:00 am. Each 45-minute class will begin with a song led by one of our UU musicians, and then a chalice lighting and check-in: the Roses and Thorns that are our children’s Joys and Concerns. We’ll read a story together and talk about its meaning. Then we play. A variety of activities are available for children to choose from, and volunteer RE leaders and assistants companion the children, talking, playing, and building relationship. We end at 10:45 so that volunteers and families have the time to go to the service together or get settled on our playground.
Each month, we’ll explore how we live another Unitarian Universalist Principle together. In October, we’ll explore the first Rainbow Principle: Respect the worth and dignity of each person. I hope that you will join our community!

Addiction Recovery Ministry Meeting

Addiction Recovery Ministry Meeting


February 5, 2023

Our twice-monthly meetings are addiction support meetings where someone provides a topic or reading, and we share together. We do not focus on one specific addiction—many are represented. Our focus on being together is support and recovery. Expectations for those who attend extend from just listening to participating fully. We cherish honesty and openness, confidentiality, integrity, and compassion.
If you are looking for support, join us at 12:30 pm right after services.
Meeting ID: 961 4648 2750
Passcode: 425559
Contact us at recovery@uuabq.org for more information or if you need our support.

Young Adults

The Young Adults affinity group meets every Sunday to offer space to partner in church community life, build friendships, and contemplate religious themes together. Join us from 12:30-1:30 pm in the Arnold room (we ask that masks be worn) or online via Zoom/Discord. This group is geared towards those ages 18-35 years old and anyone who feels being in this group would deepen their belonging at First U. This year, we are planning to grow our community presence with more youth ministry and we are excited to welcome new and familiar faces.
For more information, please find us on Realm at Groups > Affinity Group > Young Adults, or text Ollie Bradstreet at 207-391-9127.
