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 ARE Facilitator Policy and our ARE 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 ARE 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.
