During the program year – August through May – there are offerings available for adults and teens, and Families* 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? How can your compassion make a difference?
On the fourth Sundays, Faith Development hosts Dream Work Workshops, based on the work of Rev. Dr. Jeremy Taylor, who saw dream work as an essential tool for addressing the social and environmental calamities of the world and for changing the world for the better. Dr. Thomas Yun leads an exploration of dreams and engaging discussion.
Additionally, on the fourth Sundays during even months, the Faith Development Team sponsors a book discussion (see schedule). Whether you have had an opportunity to read the selected book or not, you are welcome to come and take part in the discussion of the issues explored in each chosen title.
Check the Faith Development Bulletin Board at UUCG or the e-news for upcoming titles and 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, families and people of any age are invited into an exploration of topics relating to our connection and responsibility to our planet. Sessions are offered every Sunday morning (except select holidays). This program will focus on nature-centered themes, in 8 week blocks.
- September – November 2019 – Miracles
- January – March 2020 – Circle of Trees
- April – May 2020 – Gather the Spirit
We also offer a program for children of Early Elementary-age children (5 – 7 years old) each Sunday.
These children enter the sanctuary with their families and the congregation for the beginning portion of worship, then are escorted out to their program in the Treehouse room, where their program leaders will engage them in stories and activities designed to parallel what is being offered in the main Worship Service, until parents pick them up at 12:15, following the service.
Nursery/Toddler care is provided in the Castle & Garden rooms 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!
