Programs for Adults

Lifelong Faith Formation

Our programs for adults give us the opportunities to broaden and deepen ourselves intellectually, socially, ethically, and spiritually. From workshops to community service, covenant groups to discussion groups, meditation to music—all in the context of a supportive spiritual community—there are a variety of opportunities for adults to learn more about Unitarian Universalism beyond our Sunday services.

We affirm a free and responsible search for truth and meaning from birth to death. Unitarian Universalism celebrates the ways that our needs, our hopes, and our beliefs change as life changes us.

Who am I? Whose am I? What am I here for? These age-old questions are the foundations of a meaningful life. In Unitarian Universalism, we explore these questions through worship services and in small group activities in community.

We are your partners in expressing who you are, what you value, and what you believe at all stages of life. No matter what life has dealt us, Unitarian Universalists (UUs) are spiritual companions on a path of integrity and interconnection, bringing more love, and more justice, into being.

Every congregation chooses its own adult programs.  First Unitarian Church offers:

  • Adult Religious Education Courses on such topics as spirituality, theology, relationships, money, ethics, and justice. Our Sunday Explorations sessions are held every Sunday at 9:30 am in the Arnold Room.  UU 101, which is offered quarterly addresses faith development, including UU history, theology, ethics, and spiritual practices.
  • Book discussion groups
  • Covenant Groups, also known as Small Group Ministry, which offer a circle of peers for reflection and discussion.
  • Social justice programs that engage and challenge us to bring positive change to our world and our congregational communities.
