Adult Religious Education
Unitarian Universalists believe that education is a lifelong process. In addition to the religious education program for children and youth, The Fellowship offers a variety of options for adults wishing to stretch both mind and body in an atmosphere of mutual respect, a free exchange of ideas, and fun.
The Seeker’s Forum, a topical discussion and book study group, meets from 9-10:15 a.m. in the 4th through 6th grade classroom (the last room on the right in the Religious Education wing). Childcare is provided.
- A Hatha Yoga group meets from 5:30 to 6:20 every Thursday, offering a great way to stretch and reduce stress. All ages are welcome to participate (there is no child care). There is no class fee, though sometimes a free will offering is made to offset utility costs. Contact Bill Lucero .
- The Fellowship sponsors several Covenant Groups. Each group of 8-12 people focuses on making meaningful connections in a safe and respectful setting. The groups discuss wide ranging topics (Death and Dying, Curiosity, Habits & Rote, Bitterness, and Atheism are but a few of the topics). For information on how to join a Covenant Group, contact Leslie Weishaar, Director of LifeSpan Religious Education.
- The UUFT is committed to lifespan sexuality education that provides accurate and age-appropriate information about sexuality. Towards that end we have trained facilitators in all levels of OWL (Our Whole Lives), a curriculum developed jointly by the Unitarian Universalist Association, the United Church of Christ, and Planned Parenthood. Registration for OWL is limited to UUFT members. To find out more about OWL for adults or kids, contact Jean Ryan , Director of Religious Education.
