Learning for Adults
Where learning never stops.
While worship provides an opportunity to reflect on theological questions and to create a common experience, Second Unitarian also values the importance of individual growth, curiosity and development through adult religious education programs.
When asked what they like about a class, we often see consistent themes among participants’ comments:
“Expands the mind and offers new perspectives.”
“Interaction and discussion with other participants.”
“Great discussions of great topics.”

2019-2020 Adult Religious Education Programs:
- Owning Your Religious Past – Fall – 5 sessions. Addresses the need to reckon with your religious upbringing and to integrate your upbringing into your current religious life. The program’s exercises invite you to revisit religious spaces and people from your childhood in an honest and ultimately positive way that promotes greater self-understanding and personal peace.
- EnqUUiring Minds – Winter and Summer – 1 session. Provides information about the Unitarian Universalist faith and allows you to explore your religious journey.
- Articulating Your UU Faith – Spring – 5 sessions. A deeper dive into your own experiences of your UU faith, the Seven Principles, a bit of UU history and theology — all to help you more easily write and talk about your faith.
For information on or registration for upcoming courses, contact Rev. Cyndi Simpson.
We also offer small group ministry — ongoing monthly discussion groups that delve more deeply into each month’s worship theme.
