Our adult years are a rich time for religious, spiritual, and personal development. Many of us seek greater self-understanding, inspiration, and spiritual growth. We long for opportunities to reflect on our lives’ experiences, and to learn from the insights others have gained from their experiences.

UUCW offers a variety of opportunities for learning and spiritual growth for adults designed to foster community and individual growth in a lively and nurturing environment. Workshops, discussion sessions, and classes on liberal theology, spiritual practice, world religions, UU history, and other topics of interest are offered at UUCW. The RE Council and Dave Cicero, Lifespan Religious Education Director, arrange these programs, which are open to new members at any time. Contact Dave to suggest a subject or ask about those publicized.

Young Adult Ministry

Young adults at UUCW find support in meeting needs for spirituality, friendship, and purpose. Ranging from the ages of 18 to 35, young adults have specific experiences to navigate and our church is here to help along the way. Contact Dave Cicero, Lifespan Religious Education Director, if you are interested in participating.

UUCW “Covenant Groups”

Covenant groups start up in the fall, establishing themselves for the year and re-forming with new members again the following summer. For more information about a specific group, contact Dave Cicero, Director of Lifespan Religious Education (DLRE).

Soul Matters Sharing Circles
UUCW’s “Soul Circle” participants engage with monthly Soul Matters themes by exploring recommended exercises and considering related questions. They then connect with members of their larger circle to listen deeply to — and learn from — the insights and recalled wisdom each share.

UU Wellspring
UU Wellspring is a 10-month spiritual deepening program for Unitarian Universalists to claim, re-imagine, and practice the living tradition of their UU faith. Programs begin with a group retreat, and participants make time for a daily spiritual practice and connect regularly with a personal spiritual companion or director. Groups meet twice monthly to reflect on assigned material, and can follow any of several courses available: Sources (the foundation) or another, for those continuing their exploration.

Women Writers’ Circle
This group provides a safe, non-competitive environment to write, cultivate creativity, and strengthen the voices of its participants. Writers in all genres, beginner to experienced, are welcome. As they share, they build community, following the model Mary Pierce Brosmer developed for her organization, Women Writing for (a) Change.
