Adult Religious Education will begin on February 3, 2019. and will be held every Sunday at 11:15 AM to 12:15 PM in the Library. The goal of Adult RE is to educate and assist the adult congregants of UUCOC, and guests, on their spiritual journeys and to strengthen our bonds of community.

Adults are also encouraged to:

Walk the Labyrinth & the Sacred Grounds

Meditate in the Shambhala room of the Charity Building

Enjoy connecting in beloved commUUnity

Our upcoming programs are listed below.

Note that from Feb 10th to March 17th we will be presenting elements of "The New UU." This  program provides important tools to help congregations welcome, orient, and integrate newcomers into their faith communities. The program addresses the needs of newcomers who want to know more about who we are and what we believe. It provides opportunities for members of our congregation to share with newcomers what it means to them to be a Unitarian Universalist. It gives newcomers a chance to examine their own personal stories in the light of our Unitarian Universalist tradition and heritage. It provides a chance for newcomers to the congregation and long-timers to connect. It provides an explicit invitation to become a member.

As one in the Tapestry of Faith series of curricula for adults, “The New UU” weaves Unitarian Universalist values, Principles, and Sources with four strands: spiritual development, ethical development, Unitarian Universalist identity development, and faith development.

And even if you’re not “new” to UU, this course is a wonderful refresher, so we invite you to join us, and share your experience with newer congregants.

From March 31st to May 12th we will be presenting an overview of "The Sevenfold Journey - Reclaiming Mind, Body, and Spirit Through the Chakras." This series of workshops is meant to promote personal growth based on the Hindu Seven Chakra system. Using the book as a guide, we will learn about each of the chakras and how we might use them on our personal journeys. Handouts will be provided, so purchasing the book is not required.

While not strictly necessary, colors do have great significance for each of the chakras. So we encourage everyone to wear a color related to the chakra we’re covering and to bring something of that color to share on the altar we will build each day.
