Sunday School, our religious education we call Lifelong Faith Exploration, provides an exciting program for children and youth. A library available through the UUA (Unitarian Universalist Association) provides the source material for classes. Our Whole Lives (OWL) is an award-winning sex education and coming-of-age program for older teens, providing a special teaching opportunity.
Quest invites you to join a collective journey of the mind and spirit, honoring the Latin word Quaere which means to search, to seek, and to question. It provides a great opportunity to express your thoughts, feelings and questions about a range of topics while getting to know other participants on a deeper level. The group discussion format welcomes participation. Upcoming topics are announced via email. Join us Sundays 9:15-10:15 A.M. in Dobkin Hall. Childcare available.

Soup Sundays, one Sunday each month from October to March, are casual lunch gatherings featuring delicious soups and desserts made by members of the Congregation. (Soup and dessert donations are always appreciated.) Held in Dobkin Hall.
Connections/Small Group Ministry recognizes that spiritual practice is enhanced by intentional relationships. Groups of 10-12 members meet monthly for meaningful discussions about various topics such as ‘generosity,’ ‘fear,’ and ‘soul.’ Membership in these popular groups is closed after the initial enrollment period; confidentiality is a promise upheld. Look for announcements or check with Rev. Dr. Kathy or Leslie O’Connor, Director of Faith Formation.
