All church members, friends and especially newcomers are welcome in our Adult Programing classes and groups. They provide connections within our church community, and nurture members and friends in their spiritual, personal, and intellectual growth. They provide information and experience in our Unitarian Universalist history, theology and practices, as well as spiritual practice from a variety of faith traditions and through the arts.

We staff a table on Sunday mornings just opposite the coffee service in Fellowship Hall. There you will find the latest course catalog and updates, books for purchase for classes and other information. Or just stop by to chat, offer suggestions or get the inside track on what might be on the horizon for special events and classes.

REGISTERING FOR CLASSES- 2 ways

1. Online Registration
2. At the AP table on Sundays (across from Fellowship Hall).

Many classes and events require or request registration. Some have limits and the class may be closed, if you don't register.

CHILD CARE: We will provide child care when requested. Please be sure to indicate the number of children and their ages when you register and make your request at least one week in advance. In the event that we are unable to offer child care for your course, we will let you know.  PLEASE NOTE: If you have requested child care and are unable to attend a class, please call the Church Office (267-4946, ext 21) as early as possible, so we can cancel the child care.

DONATION: The Adult Programing expenses are met by donations collected from our classes. These donations help to cover the publication of catalogues, our share of property use, the purchase of new curricula, supplies, and other committee expenses. Volunteers lead all of the courses offered. A donation of $5 a class is suggested.  Please make your check payable to "First UU Church" with the memo of "Adult Programs".

LEADING A CLASS - If you are interested in leading/teaching a new Adult Enrichment Class, please read the Facilitator Guidelines and submit the online proposal form. You may also pick up a copy of the Guidelines and form at the AEP Information Table on Sunday morning. About half of our offerings are a result of proposals from First UU members.We strive to offer changing programs that meet diverse interests and needs.
