For Teens and Adults
During the program year – August through May – there are offerings available for adults and teens to enrich and enliven your Sunday mornings at UUCG. These programs take place at 10:00am, prior to the 11:00am Worship Service.
On the first Sunday of each month, the Faith Development Team hosts a guided discussion introducing the monthly theme from a Unitarian Universalist perspective. Come discover ways to live into the theme beyond Sunday mornings. What gifts does this month’s theme hold for you?
On the second Sunday, Spiritual Practices are shared in a workshop format. Come with the courage to experience something new, or re-invigorate a forgotten practice. What connects you with spirit?
On the third Sundays, we host discussions about various ways to get and stay involved in the movement to work toward social justice in our community, our nation, and the world. How can you put your faith into action and let your life speak? How can your compassion make a difference?
On the fourth Sundays during even months, the Faith Development Team will sponsor a book discussion (see schedule). Whether you have had an opportunity to read the book or not, you are welcome to come and take part in the discussion of the issues explored in each chosen title.
On the fourth Sundays during odd months, Faith Development presents a video (TED Talk, documentary short, etc.) and leads an engaging discussion, providing resources for further exploration. Check the Faith Development Bulletin Board at UUCG or the e-news for upcoming topics.
Please note: There are several holiday weekend Sundays throughout the year when no programs are scheduled (check the calendar), but space is always provided for fellowship and conversation.
Also at 10:00am, Upper Elementary children (ages 8-11) may come to participate in our Tweens program, Windows and Mirrors. Sessions are offered every Sunday morning (except select holidays). This program is designed to engage participants in an exploration of the monthly themes through a Unitarian Universalist lens, using art and music as tools for self-exploration, providing an opportunity for them to identify their own experiences and perspectives and to seek out, care about, and respect those of others.
We also offer a program for children of Early Elementary-age (5 – 7 years old) each Sunday.
These children enter the sanctuary with their parents and the congregation for the beginning portion of worship, then are escorted out to their program in the Studio, until parents pick them up at 12:15, following the service.
Nursery/Toddler care is provided by a staff and volunteer team every Sunday from 10:30 to 12:15.
To participate in our Religious Exploration programs, please check-in with the RE Greeter when you arrive, fill out a registration form, or register on-line.
Come be Curious, Courageous, and Compassionate with us!
