Adult Faith Development
At UUCC, our Adult Faith Development mission is to make a difference in the spiritual lives of those in our community by providing opportunities for fellowship, spiritual and religious growth.
In order to provide a wide variety of educational and formational events, we strive to offer adult faith programming in four key theme areas: spirituality, religious history, UU values, and hard questions/ethics.
We offer curricula at different times of the year that stimulate adult spiritual and intellectual growth and development.
For Spring 2017:
Bible Stories for Skeptics, Seekers, and Religious Liberals
Bible Study Class started on February 8, 2017 and will meet on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday through April 26, 2017. Throughout our lifetime, many of us have only experienced the Bible as a tool for oppression. We’ve seen this sacred text used to perpetuate injustice and to legitimize environmental exploitation, racism, sexism, homophobia—and more. BUT, what if there’s another way to interpret some of those “texts of terror”? This class will look at some of the Bible stories and passages that we may only have heard through the lens of fundamentalist Christians—only this time, we’ll be using our religious liberal lens. Come ready to have fun and be surprised! What stories/passages from the Bible would you like to explore? Email Susan Fox with your ideas! The six Wednesday classes begin February 8, 2017 and will meet the 2nd and 4th Wednesday through April 26, 2017. To register, please use this link.
New Meditation Group
A new mediation group started on February 1, 2017 and will continue meet the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays from 7 – 8:30 pm in the Sanctuary. Our format will be a mix of breath meditation, spiritual readings and discussion, and personal check-in. Rev. Amy Russell and others in the group will share the lead.
