Adult Learning

Graphic of words by Connie Goodbread: “Everything we do is Faith Formation. Everything we teach is Unitarian Universalism. The Congregation is the Curriculum.”

Welcome! Whether you’re new to UUCC or have been around for years, you’re welcome to check out what adult learning opportunities we have coming up for the 2023-24 congregational year and participate as you’re available and interested!

2023-24 reflection groups | varied times / locations 🤝 

The Unitarian theologian, James Luther Adams, has said that what draws people to our congregations is a need for “intimacy and ultimacy.” Our Soul Matters Reflection Groups are designed to provide a sense of belonging (intimacy) and to nurture spiritual growth (ultimacy) through monthly small group gatherings. Reflection Groups provide an intentional way to listen to each other deeply and with discipline.
