ABOUT THE OUUC ADULT EDUCATION PROGRAM

OUUC’s adult education program offers a wide range of classes to help members and others in their spiritual development and in a broad variety of life skills, as well as to increase knowledge in specific areas, or just to have fun. The Adult Education Committee reviews ideas for classes, finds and assists instructors, and publishes seasonal catalogs of the class offerings.

Registration is open to all members and friends of OUUC and members of the larger community. To help us keep these offerings sustainable, we suggest a donation of $10 for a single session class, and of $20 for a longer course.

To reduce the chance of class cancellations because too few people have signed up, please register at least a week before your class begins.  Click on the title of the class you would like to take, and you should arrive at the Registration Page. Please contact us if you have problems.

Unless otherwise noted, all class leaders are members of the OUUC community who generously contribute their expertise, time and hard work to develop their course material, completely gratis. Please make every effort to attend all sessions of each class for which you have signed up, or let the class leader know ahead of time if you can’t attend. Newcomers to OUUC can find classes relevant to this faith tradition marked with a chalice logo.

The Adult Education Committee welcomes offers to lead future classes from members of the broader community as well as from the OUUC congregation. Please direct proposals or inquiries to the Adult Education Committee, c/o the OUUC Office (dre@ouuc.org / 360-786-6383), or contact a committee member. A member of the committee will contact you and guide you through the process of setting up your class. Current members are: Margo Curl, Joanne Dufour, Mary Moore, Kathy O’Connor, Larry O’Connor, Julie Rosmond, John Snyder, Pat Sonnenstuhl, Michael Kyer, Gary Worthington (Chair), and Sara Lewis (Staff).

Owning Your Religious Past3 sessions April 19, 26, and May 10 6:30-8pm, taught by Sara Lewis

Many of us have arrived at Unitarian Universalism after a long journey with other faith traditions. Some of that journey may have been painful or problematic for us, and some of it may have been wonderful and is now missed.

This class will provide time, tools, and companionship as we process our religious past.
