While many of our adult education classes have been canceled or postponed due to the Stay at Home order, others are being offered on Zoom. The following classes are still happening and open for registration:

NEW! STOP THE HURT: Five Steps to Stop Implicit Bias – Tuesdays (5 sessions): May 12, 19, 26, June 2, 9. 5:30-6:30 pm. The Rev. Carol McKinley, Anne Hundley, and Sara Lewis

Using curriculum developed by Dr. Amanda Kemp, we will explore bias and how to move to being anti-racist. From Dr. Kemp’s website: “Let’s face it.  Racial justice work can be emotionally taxing.  That’s why I created Racial Justice from the H.E.A.R.T.  Our programs ease the wear and tear on your heart as you create change.” Join us for this important conversation!

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. 

If online registration is a problem for you, contact Sara Lewis at 360-786-6383 x. 102

To reduce the chance of class cancelations because too few people have signed up, please register at least a week before your class begins.

The fee for a single class of up to two hours is $10. For classes longer than two hours or with multiple sessions, the fee is $15. A fee of $25 covers as many classes as you wish to take. Exceptions to the fees are noted in the class descriptions. The fee will be waived, upon request, if it creates a hardship for you. On-site child care can also be requested when registering.

For attendees from the broader community: Per calendar month there is no charge for a single two hour class or a film session and any included discussion, but attendees can make an optional donation in any amount they wish. Classes and workshops of over two hours, or additional sessions in the same calendar month, require the same fees as for OUUC members-friends. Please feel free to invite your friends from the broader community to use the OUUC website to register for classes, but kindly remind them about any fees.

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, Anne Radford, Julie Rosmond, John Snyder, Pat Sonnenstuhl, Bob Sundstrom, Gary Worthington (Chair), and Sara Lewis (Staff).

For inclusion in the winter-spring 2020 program (January–June): Oct. 31, 2019.

For inclusion in the fall 2020 program (September–December): June 30, 2020.
