Religious education is not just for children and youth. As Unitarian Universalists, we are dedicated to the lifelong search for truth and meaning. In his essay “Guiding Principles for a Free Faith,” prominent 20th century UU theologian James Luther Adams said, “Religious liberalism depends on the principle that ‘revelation’ is continuous.” Unitarian Universalism is called a living tradition because we are always learning new and deeper truths.

Our goal at UUFCC is to help you explore those new and deeper truths by providing a wide variety of balanced content and varied formats. From single session workshops to yearlong courses, our Adult Religious Education Program centers around four core themes:

1)    UU Identity & History

2)    Spirituality & Practice

3)    World Religions

4)    Ethics & Social Action

All workshops and courses are open to friends, members, and visitors. Some workshops and courses, as indicated, require previous registration to attend. Led by the minister, the Director of Lifespan Religious Education, or a member of the congregation, classes are held on weekday evenings and Sundays following service.

We also offer a number of opportunities for spiritual growth and social connection which don’t technically fall under the Adult RE umbrella such as meditation groups and a memoir writing group. Click here for more information on such activities.

If you prefer to learn on your own time and would like some guidance, or if you have any questions in general regarding the Adult Religious Education Program at UUFCC, please call the church office at (814) 237-7605.
