At Second Unitarian, we offer adult religious learning opportunities focusing on three topic areas:

  • Loving Each Other, which explores relational issues.
  • Loving Faith, which explores our UU history, spirituality, and other faith traditions.
  • Loving Mother Earth to help us be better stewards of the earth.

These opportunities occur in a variety of formats at different times, which are announced in the Weekly eNews.

First Hour

Second Sunday of each month at 9 a.m. Join fellow learners to hear a brief presentation about a timely topic or Second Unitarian church event or cause. First Hour is open to all members, friends and visitors. Watch for information about each month’s topic and how to participate in the Weekly eNews or the News section of this website.

Pathways to Membership Classes

Twice yearly. Explore your individual spiritual journey and beliefs; learn about the UU faith and its history; and understand the benefits and responsibilities of membership.

Soul Matters

Monthly sessions year-round. Ongoing discussion groups, each with about eight participants, focus on our monthly ministry themes. Using UU Soul Matters materials, participants work through activities during the month. They then come together at monthly meetings for thoughtful discussion, led by a trained facilitator. To join a group, please contact our office administrator at

Common Read

Occasional winter series. Common Read invites participants to read and discuss a justice-focused book, selected each year by the Unitarian Universalist Association. Common Read helps build community in our congregation by providing a shared experience, shared language, and a basis for deep, meaningful conversations. See the current and past Common Read titles.

UU 101 – Tracing Our Roots

Five-part monthly series offered occasionally. How has Unitarian Universalism evolved over time? We will start at the beginning, 1,800 years ago, to become acquainted with our early heretics.
