Adult Education

Our goal at UUFRC is to offer lifespan education. We hold classes and forums throughout the year developing the same themes as the children’s curriculum.

Classes and forums are led by our minister or experienced facilitators from our membership or elsewhere.  If you wish to suggest or teach a class, please contact our Adult Ed Coordinator.

For current program offerings, please read the newsletter or call the UUFRC office.  There are no fees for any of these programs.

This class will help participants learn about the roots and history of Unitarian Universalism as well as some of our own Fellowship history. The course begins by sharing our faith journeys.  We’ll also discuss committees, communication, and focus on areas of importance identified by the group. We strongly encourage participation in this class if you are interested in becoming a member. This class is offered several times each year.  Please call the church office, or contact Cindy Johnson at 650-364-4995 or via email for more information.

Forums are held on Sundays from noon to 1:00 in the church sanctuary. For upcoming topics, see the newsletter.

C-Groups (Covenant Groups)
C-Groups require a commitment for at least 6 months meeting twice a month. These are small group discussion sessions with a format on a topic chosen by the participants, typically meeting in the evening on a week night agreeable to the group. There are several C-Groups going on at any one time.

Ongoing Opportunities
Book Group

The Book Discussion Group meets once a month for a lively talk about their reading.  Books are chosen by member consensus – both fiction and nonfiction, usually current but not always.

Sunday Night Seekers: Adventures with the Sacred..Are you seeking spiritual growth? Do you suspect that there might be something beyond the five-senses experience of the world? Do you feel drawn to live a more authentic life, even though you might not be sure what that is? Do you feel called to explore the rich topography of an inner life? Are you longing for a deeper sense of connection to yourself, others, and the Universe? And would you like to spend time with others who are exploring these same questions? If so, you’re not alone. Albert Einstein, Emily Dickinson, John Nash, Beethoven, Buddha, Tolkien, J.K. Rowling, Rumi, Martin Luther King, Teresa of Avila, Carl Jung, and countless others have asked the same questions — and so have people in the UUFRC community. If you would like to join Kai Marks and like-minded folks with a heart for adventure and a desire to cultivate personal and spiritual growth, come join the Sunday Night Seekers, beginning Sunday April 17, 7:00-8:00 PM at the Fellowship.
