For Adults

Welcome to Lifespan Faith Development’s Adult Programs webpage! We hope you’ll want to participate in some of our classes and programs this year. Our upcoming offerings are listed below. The Adult Programs Committee welcomes your input for future programming – we strive to provide a broad range of educational and faith development opportunities for members and friends of our congregation.

If you would like to lead or co-lead an adult program and have been active in our congregation for at least six months (Here’s our Adult Programs Facilitator Policy and our Adult Programs Facilitator Packet), please contact a member of the Adult Programs Committee. Plan to attend a facilitator training session if you haven’t led a class in the past, and submit a Adult Programs Course Proposal Form by October 30th for the spring semester or April 30th for fall. We look forward to serving and learning with the members and friends of UUCB.

Childcare is available for any class upon advance request.

For more information about any course, please contact the facilitator or any member of the Adult Programs Committee.

The Adult Programs Committee meets on the 2nd Tuesday evening of each month. Please contact the chair for more information if you are interested in joining us.  Current membership:

Small Group Ministry

A safe place to explore the spiritual values at the heart of a topic or issue, groups are a gathering of six to eleven people lead by a trained facilitator. Group members attend to the ministry of their fellow group members as they get to know and care for each other. Topics and level of sharing can grow deep and intimate as the group develops.

More about small groups

To join a group, contact the office with your name, phone number, and the days and times you are available.

Social Justice

Social justice work is an integral part of what it means to be a Unitarian Universalist. We serve, we advocate, we educate and we donate. We seek to make tangible our commitment to UU principles through acts of love, deeds of justice and to improve the human condition.

Volunteer

Many small efforts make a grand community! Here are a few examples of volunteer opportunities:

  • Be a greeter at Sunday service
  • Help set up coffee hour for Sunday service
