Religious Education for Adults
Adult Religious Education takes many forms at St. John’s. We have discussions, lectures, practice groups, book-based classes, adult forums,and films.
All of our classes are open to members, friends, and neighbors in the community. There is no charge to attend any of our classes, although some of the classes require books.
Classes are available during the year in the following five areas:
I. Unitarian Universalist History and Identity
II. Religion: Theology and Faith Development
III. Spiritual Practice
IV. Social Justice and Ethics
V. Community and Personal Growth
This program will be held in the Chapel from 12:45 – 2:15 p.m.
Brown bag lunches are welcome to be eaten while we watch the DVD together before the discussion.
Group leaders will be Tom Conroy, Don Fannin, Dick Fencl and Antoinette Asimus.
