Adult Religious Education

Programs for adults give us the chance to go deeper— intellectually, socially, ethically, and spiritually. From workshops to community service, covenant groups to discussion groups, meditation to marching—all in the context of a supportive spiritual community—Unitarian Universalism has much to offer adults beyond our Sunday services.

Every congregation chooses its own adult programs.

A congregation may offer:

  • Workshops on such topics as spirituality, theology, relationships, money, ethics, and justice;
  • Book and film discussion groups;
  • Covenant Groups, also known as Small Groups, which offer a circle of peers for reflection and discussion. These groups, different from support groups, meet monthly to consider powerful themes that give life meaning;
  • Social justice and inclusion programs engage us in changing the world, and changing our congregations. The Welcoming Congregation keeps us including and affirming people who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning. Building the World We Dream About gives us a foundation for building multicultural anti-oppressive community. Standing on the Side of Love gets us out on the streets.
