Adult Religious Education

Our Adult RE program offers a variety of offering for members of the UUCM community.

Our Mission

The Adult Education Committee exists to inspire more joy and justice in an imperfect world. Working with the minister, staff and congregants, we create opportunities for our adult members to investigate or explore the spiritual, intellectual, and emotional paths on life’s journey. These events and classes focus on faith development, social justice, and strengthening the relationships that bind our community, clarifying how our values inform our action.

Education Programs

Past education opportunities that have been offered:

  • “Bible Stories for Skeptics”
  • “UU Roots” – a reading group dedicated to exploring our roots
  • Transcendentalism

Other educational opportunities under the umbrella of Adult RE are the Small Group Ministry program, Affinity Groups, and the “Remarkable People” series, where two members of the congregation share their lives with us.

Adult Ed also collaborates with the Worship Committee to allow Sunday Speakers to chat with Congregants and host more in-depth discussions with those speakers. These “Talk Abouts” provide an opportunity for those interested in diving deeper into the sermon subject. They are typically held after the Sunday Service.

The Adult Education Committee wants your ideas! Tell us if you:
