Welcome to the 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.
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.
To join a group, contact the office with your name, phone number, and the days and times you are available.
Adult programs are opportunities to learn and explore.
Through stories, music, meditation and community, we come together to celebrate our community.
As well as being a part of the regular cadence of worship and faith development, social action at UUCB is implemented by Social Action teams that each have a vision of justice for a particular issue and wish to organize activities, events, or education on the topics in those spheres.
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
- Bring baked goods for coffee hour on Sundays
- Create the focal point for a Sunday service
- Help mow the lawn
- Give a ride to a neighbor
- Help fold our newsletter, the Beacon
If you can help in any of these small ways, contact the UU Congregation of Binghamton Office.
We have a flourishing Adult Choir and always welcome new members. The ability to sight-read is not required. Rehearsals are on Thursday evenings from 6:30 – 8 pm.
If you are interested in joining, please contact the office or e-mail Vicky Gordon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
UU Congregation Binghamton has many committees and groups both elected and voluntary. Committees serve to guide and advise the various actions of our community.
Consider sharing your interest, expertise or experience by joining a committee.
