Are you interested in learning more about Unitarian Universalism? This class is for new Unitarian Universalists as well as anyone in the congregation who would like to think and talk more about what being a Unitarian Universalist means in their lives.

 

There will be a short reading sent out in advance, as well as a video to give a bit of historical and current context, and then we’ll spend most of our class time discussing who we are as Unitarian Universalists and what we believe.

 

Newcomers will have a chance to learn about our Unitarian Universalist tradition and heritage, and everyone will have the opportunity to deepen our connections with one another in community.

Women's Book Group

Women’s Book Group meets the first Tuesday of each month, from 7 – 9 pm. Books are chosen once a year for the next 11 months (in April). Members are encouraged to bring book title suggestions at the annual book choosing meeting. Participants take turns leading the group discussions. If you are interested, please email Margaret Rogers to connect with the current facilitators.
