Our congregation has chosen to highlight the importance of diversity, spiritual practice, and environmental sustainability in our Strategic Plan, and our Adult RE Program prioritizes these themes.
Crossroads Coffee—On the first and third Sunday each month a facilitated discussion on a different topic or issue takes place during Coffee Hour (between the services, from 10:45-11:30). On the 4th Sunday of each month, a special “Visitors Coffee” is hosted by the Membership Committee, with UUCSS Board Members and Staff available to answer questions from visitors and new members. Check the church bulletin, weekly e-mail announcements and the Uniter newsletter for announcements of upcoming topics and dates.
Workshops—A different workshop will be offered most every 3rd Sunday afternoon from 1-3 pm in the Sanctuary. Themes range from “Aging” to “Domestic Violence” to “Parenting and Spirituality” to “Green Sanctuary.” See Upcoming Events for specific dates, times and topics.
Day Trippers: The Senior Planning Group, which includes lay ministers and members of the Adult RE Committee, plans workshops and other activities for senior members of the congregation. One of these is the Day Trippers program: Once a month UUCSSers visit a museum, perform community service, or commune with nature and then enjoy a brown bag lunch together. This is open to anyone available on a weekday. Look for details in the Uniter and on the list serve.
