Adult spiritual programs are designed to help you, our members and friends, discover your own truths, grow spiritually, connect with other church members and friends, and put principles and values into action. The weekly e-newsletter provides up-to-date information about these activities. To learn more, contact the church office.
Soul Matters Conversations
These once-a-month conversations facilitated by Rev. Dr. Sandra Fees focus on sharing experiences and deepening engagement with the monthly worship themes. The group meets the 4th Tuesday of the month from September through May (no December gathering) from 7-8:30 pm.
Contemplative Companions meet to listen, reflect, observe silence, and share stories. They meet the first Monday of the month at 7 pm.
Book Discussion Group
The Book Discussion Group meets the third Wednesday of the month at 7 pm and focuses on social justice related works that are relevant to today’s issues. Book titles often pertain to anti-racism and anti-oppression but also include LGBTQ topics.
The LGTBQ Caucus meets once a month on Sunday after church to share stories in a supportive environment. The group also participates in offsite social activities such as potluck meals and local outings. LGBTQ allies are welcome to participate.
Seers & Sages
The senior women of our UU congregation (60+) meet the third Friday of the month for a Noon lunch to share interests, concerns, talents, and most importantly their caring for one another.
Considering Membership Class
The Considering Membership Class is a next step for those individuals who are getting to know the church community and thinking about joining. It’s an opportunity to hear the stories of long-time members and other newcomers, and become acquainted with the ministries and activities of the church. Classes are held twice yearly in the Spring and Fall on Sundays following the worship service.
The Parenting Groups meets approximately once a month for a potluck gathering at a rotation of member homes. Meetings balance social time with often a pertinent short program with a guest speaker for adults in the family. Programs include topics such as social justice or talking to kids about death, dying and grief.
Across time and traditions people have valued the presence of a trusted spiritual companion in their lives. Today this ancient art is called “spiritual direction” because both seeker and companion intentionally come together to listen for direction from the spirit of life that moves within. If you are interested in deepening your spiritual journey in this way, contact Spiritual Director and Member Nadine Smet-Weiss for more information or to make an appointment. The cost is a sliding scale with scholarships available.
The church library is a great resource for Unitarian Universalist book-related materials. Among the topics is: UU history and theology, world religions, justice, inspiration, and more. Books are available on loan to members and friends.
