Credo Writing

Credo Writing  for Adults is a set of three workshops designed for you to explore your spiritual journey and religious identity. You will reflect on how you got to now, engage with texts as they relate to your spiritual life, and craft a statement about who you are as a person of faith.  In addition, you will be invited to present your credo to the congregation before the Heritage Trip to Boston in September.


 

Late summer Dates & Times TBD

Themes from UU History

This course provides an in-depth look at the people, movements and events which helped shape Unitarian Universalism into the faith it is today.  Not only will we learn about figures such as Olympia Brown, Ralph Waldo Emerson, William Ellery Channing and Lucile Shuck Longview, but explore how these individuals faced challenges and discover how their legacies influence  our personal religious lives and practices.


 

Trip Dates: October 3-6, 2019

UU Heritage Trip to Boston

If you’re familiar with our Coming of Age (COA) program for youth, it’s a class that mirrors the Bar/Bat Mitzvah year, during which youth define their own beliefs and spiritual journey. It culminates in a heritage trip to Boston, the historical center of Unitarian Universalism in the United States.

As many of us didn’t grow up UU, we’ve missed the chance to take part in this series. Now, we can! To see details about the COA for Adults course of study and heritage trip to Boston, click here.
