Our family programming is supported by several volunteer-powered groups.
Faith Exploration (formerly RE) Facilitators
JUC’s faith exploration (FE) programming is possible thanks to the dedicated service of JUC congregants. This multigenerational opportunity helps each person involved to grow in spiritual practice, deepen understanding and respect of our religiously diverse world, and live UU principles in daily life.
Family Ministry Team
JUC’s Family Ministry Team (FMT) serves to strengthen the JUC community by listening to and voicing families’ ideas, needs, and wants. FMT plans both online and in-person events throughout the year to engage and connect people of all ages in fun and faith. Family Ministry Team welcomes members to attend one of our monthly meetings to learn more (third Thursdays at 6:30pm). FMT contact: Brooke Maddaford
