Religious Exploration for Adults
Each year in the spring and fall, our minister offers classes for newcomers interested in learning more about Unitarian Universalism. In these classes, you will learn about the journey of Unitarian Universalism—the roots of our living tradition, how it evolved in the United States, where it is today, and where it might be going—all considered in relation to your own religious journey, with time for sharing with other participants. And you will meet some of our congregation’s elected officers as well as some of those who lead our programs and activities. You will hear stories about PBUUC’s past, be given an overview of how the congregation is now organized, and a preview of our major programs—those that serve the congregation, those that serve the community, and those that try to change the world. And if you are interested and want to participate, we will be happy to let you know how you can get involved.
The recommended reading for newcomers is A Chosen Faith by the Reverends John Buehrens and Forrest Church, a highly readable introduction to our faith organized around the six sourcesfrom which Unitarian Universalism draws. It is available for sale at the Unitarian Universalist Bookstore or 800-215-9076, or you can borrow a copy in advance of the classes. Just let us know if you’d like a loaner copy.
Our minister may offer other classes from time to time, in the areas of spiritual development, ethics, the Bible, multiculturalism, the world's religions, etc. If you have an area of interest, please don't hesitate to let the minister know.
Watch for notifications in our online Calendar on our website, or our monthly newsletter Branches—also available here on our website. If you visit in person, look in the weekly Sunday bulletin for dates and how to sign up.
Please come and explore our faith. Join us in our "free and responsible search for truth and meaning," unified by their shared search for spiritual growth.
