Religious Education for Adults

We offer adults a variety of opportunities to explore and deepen your faith, to connect with others, and to live a more genuine and spiritual life in the world. Check Events for a calendar of what is happening or talk to Rev. Dave.

 

Small Group Ministry

Small groups form periodically for sessions on a specific topic or series of topics and typically include time for sharing, prayer, guided discussion, and reflection. These sessions can be in member’s homes or in the intimate spaces of Unitarian House. One previous group centered on theology and met every 3 weeks for 3 years before disbanding. This is a great way for new folks and old-timers to get to know each other and deepen connections.

 

Explore Unitarian Universalism

We offer minister-led opportunities to learn about Unitarian Universalism like”UU101″,  “2BUU” and “What We’re About”. If you are with us as a seeker and want to know more about our faith and how it might be a fit for you these sessions are for you.

 

Community Service

Volunteering in the community, working in our community garden, volunteering with Northside Common Ministries or at Jefferson Recreation Center, these are plenty of ways to do service which is part of our faith and church life.

 

Meditation

We periodically offer meditation and Taize services that focus on quiet, stillness, mindfulness, chants, and prayer.

 

Book Groups

Like to read? Like to read about religion, values, ethics, justice, community, or spirituality? The Unitarian Universalist Association features a Common Read that helps to build community by giving diverse people a shared experience, shared language, and a basis for deep, meaningful conversations.

 

Community Programs

Look for Tai Chi, Yoga, Mindfulness, and other programs on our church calendar.

 

Workshops

We offer workshops on topics of relevance to our members and the community. A few recent examples are:

Building Authentic Diversity – Rev. Renee Ruchotzke and Rev. Rob Keithan of the Unitarian Universalist Association offered this workshop on building relationships effectively across difference including ethnicity, class, sexual orientation, gender, and more.

Practicing Compassionate Communication – Kit Miller of the MK Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence at the University of Rochester offered advice for communicating across differences and bridging ethnicity, gender, sexuality, class, politics, and faith divides.
