Our programs for Adults strive to provide opportunities for members and friends to deepen their connection with other members, lifelong learning and enrichment, explore Unitarian Universalism, and building relationships within our religious community. With workshops, film discussion groups, and book clubs, we share our personal stories, explore religious and theological questions, and clarify or challenge our moral and ethical persuasions. Most importantly we discover fellowship and friendship on our individual spiritual journey and search for truth and meaning.
The Book Club meets once a month on the fourth Tuesday of each month from September to November. We meet again on the fourth Tuesday of each month from January to May. Our meetings are held in the Barn from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. You bring your lunch.
Everyone is invited, even if you haven’t read or finished the book we have selected.. All of us play a part in choosing the books and everyone has a chance to talk about what you like or dislike. Everyone is welcome to attend.
Our choir, Voices UUnited starts up on Sunday at 9:30 a.m. in mid-September with Abigail Freeman, our Music Director. If you’d like to come out and join us we’d be happy to have you. We will rehearse every Sunday morning from 9:30 to 10:00 plus once a month after service and perform an anthem approximately every second Sunday. There is no audition and you do not need to read music – just love to sing. We welcome all.
Join the group of people who came together after the Women’s March on January 21 to discuss what to do to promote human rights and social progress in these challenging times. We will be writing to our elected representatives on issues relating to democracy and human rights.
