Our Adult Religious Education Programs provide opportunities to explore, reflect, and learn in a nurturing spiritual community. They inspire

  • Ethical growth – internalizing enduring values like justice, equity, and compassion, and gaining tools to act on them in everyday life;
  • Social growth – connecting with people of all ages on a deeper level. Finding acceptance among people who see beyond the superficial; and
  • Spiritual growth – Feeling a connection with the sacred within, among, and beyond us.

Our Affinity Groups are ongoing Religious Education Programs led by laypersons. Anyone is welcome to participate in any of these groups. Just come, enjoy, and grow. Click on the name of any group to learn more.

To contact group leaders, members of the church can use information from the Church Directory.  How to Use the Church Directory.

Dedicated participation in our justice activities and service groups also encourage ethical, social, and spiritual growth.

In addition to these ongoing activities, our Adult Religious Education Committee identifies and develops educational programs based on congregational needs and interests. Laypersons, the minister and other guest speakers lead programs, which vary in length from a single day to those that last over several weeks or months. Current offerings are listed as Events here on the website. A printed brochure that also outlines current offerings is available on the entry table.

The Committee welcomes you. Please send suggestions, attend meetings, or join the committee as a regular member.
