Sunday Morning Adult Education - April 2012

Sunday Morning Adult Education - April 2012

All programs run from 10:15 to 11:15am, and all programs are drop-in friendly.

Our three options for adult religious education on Sunday mornings continue in three venues: the Hiett Library, Room 9, and Room 18.

Sundays in the Library (Hiett Library):

We continue this successful program. The first regular Sunday of each month will focus on the religion designated for that month. Both the worship service and children's religious education will have the same focus. The second or third Sunday of the month will be a Newcomer Orientation Session. Remaining Sundays will be used as needed for various offerings, including: Share-the-Plate topics, Immigration sessions, sample sessions of upcoming evening classes, the Best of UUU, and special opportunities that may arise. If you have special sessions you would like to share with our congregation, please send them to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
