Adult Religious Education

As Universalist Unitarians, we believe that continuing to learn and maintain an open mind is vital. In that spirit, we regularly offer Adult Religious Education (RE) courses on a wide range of topics.

Examples of past topics:

  • Developing a personal spirituality
  • Widening the Circle of Concern
  • UU Roots
  • Radical Hospitality

Most courses consist of four to six weekly sessions. Classes are usually held on Thursday evenings in the conference room of the church, but may be held at other times and places.

Some courses are led by our minister. Others are facilitated by members of our congregation who have a special interest in the subject. Sometimes we read short excerpts from books, or view and discuss video presentations. Whatever the format, thoughtful discussion is encouraged.

Child care is usually offered. Please contact the church office so we know how many children to plan for.

Our religious education courses are open to all—members, friends, and visitors. Bring an open mind, respect for different points of view, your own ideas, and a sense of humor. We hope to see you at one of our classes soon!
