Our adult enrichment and lifelong learning programs take on engaging and thought-provoking topics to guide meaningful conversation and opportunity for personal growth.
Sunday morning Forums (presentations or discussions on a variety of topics) are offered from mid-August through May at 9:30 a.m. in the Learning Center. A science-related topic is presented on Science Sunday, held the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month. Social Justice topics are presented on the 2nd Sunday of each month.
Classes and book discussion opportunities are offered throughout the year.
- As a non-doctrinal religion, one of the recurring and most popular classes has been Building Your Own Theology. Based on the assumption that everyone is their own theologian, this classic UU adult education program invites participants to develop their own personal credos. Guided by Rev. Tom Capo, attendees are encouraged to draw from various sources to define their personal spiritual paths.
- Book discussion groups often align with a social justice initiative or news-worthy topic. A few time/date options are offered by volunteer discussion leaders to include as many as possible. It's a great way to meet new people and share thoughtful insight.
Chalice Circles offer small-group discussion as a great way to get to know other people and to get to know yourself. Over time, participants build deep connections with one another, with the congregation and with their vision of what is sacred and meaningful.
Affinity groups provide a chance to hang out with young and old who share a common interest in a topic.
Annual Adult Retreat is an offsite, long-weekend event offered each fall with a new topic each year. Details will be available in the monthly newsletter and weekly updates. (Sign up for communications!)
