“Come, come, whoever you are, wanderer, worshipper, lover of leaving…”
13th century Sufi poet Jalaluddin Rumi
(translated and interpreted)

Programs for adults give us the chance to go deeper— intellectually, socially, ethically, and spiritually. From workshops to community service, covenant groups to discussion groups, meditation to marching—all in the context of a supportive spiritual community—Unitarian Universalism has much to offer adults beyond our Sunday services.

We affirm a free and responsible search for truth and meaning from birth to death. Unitarian Universalism celebrates the ways that our needs, our hopes, and our beliefs change as life changes us.

We have programs for adults (ages 18+), young adults (ages 18-35), and older adults.

  • The UUA Common Read for 2017 — Sign up for our discussion to be held on March 19, 2017

    3rd-reconstructionRev. Barber writes movingly—and pragmatically—about how he laid the groundwork for a state-by-state movement that unites black, white, and brown, rich and poor, employed and unemployed, gay and straight, documented and undocumented, religious and secular. Only such a diverse fusion movement, Rev. Barber argues, can heal our nation’s wounds and produce public policy that is morally defensible, constitutionally consistent, and economically sane. The Third Reconstruction is both a blueprint for movement building and an inspiring call to action from the twenty-first century’s most effective grassroots organizer. The Third Reconstruction: Moral Mondays, Fusion Politics, and the Rise of a New Justice Movement is available through the UUA Bookstore, inSpirit, http://www.uuabookstore.org/ and through Amazon.com and other book sellers. A limited number of books are also available for purchase on Sundays at UUCC dor $15.00 ($1.00 under publisher’s price). See Dot Brown or Keitha Whitaker at the Common Read Sign-up table on Sundays (Feb 19, 26 and Mar 5 and 12). You may also sign up by sending an email to uukeitha@gmail.com. Include “Common Read” in the subject line. We’re looking for 20-25 participants max, so sign up sooner rather than later.
