LIFELONG LEARNING

Welcome!

We hope you find what you need to know about River Road Unitarian Universalist Congregation's (RRUUC) religious education ministry which offers opportunities for religious and personal growth, acting in the world, and developing deep fellowship with people of all ages. Gabrielle Farrell, Lifespan Religious Educator or Beth Irikura, Religious Educator for Youth would love to meet you and answer any questions you may have. Looking forward to getting to know you.

Our Religious Education Ministry for All Ages

In our child dedication service, we make this promise to each other, "as the community that welcomes them, it is our particular task to help them learn that the power of love is stronger than all hatred and sorrow. Let us teach them to know the sanctity of life, the holiness of integrity, the virtue of kindness, and the challenge of the individual faith to which they will be called."

This is not a task of the adults alone but for all. These teachings are not something to be received, but also to be given. What we promise to do for children we promise people of all ages.

"Sunday School" and Beyond

"Sunday School" has long been what we have called our Sunday group gatherings for children, youth and adults. Click to see what might work for your family. In addition, our small group foundational “learning” happens other days of the week offering opportunities to make meaning and to practice acting with courage and conviction in the world. Please check out the RRUUC calendar, the eWeekly, worship service announcements and the RE Family News to join in ongoing celebrations, social justice projects and community-building experiences. Please register your children of any age here so we can be ready! Registration for adult offerings is available by class or group offering.

Adult Spiritual Growth includes:

  • Small Groups, more than 6 or less than 12 people that covenant to meet once a month for the congregational year. No Fee.
  • Adult or Multigenerational Classes/Learning opportunities that are distinct, mostly shorter term engagements exploring a specific topic and following a scripted lesson plan. Includes classes or opportunities offered outside of RRUUC purview but which meet our mission.   Fee-based.
  • Coffee, Conversation and Controversy meets on Sunday morning to explore issues of the day.  No fee.
  • Bookstore is open after each service in Fellowship Hall and carries books related to learning at RRUUC.
