The adult religious education program seeks to offer a variety of programs to enrich the life of adults, and enable them to explore their spiritual identity outside the Sunday morning service. Adult religious education programs engage topics such as Unitarian Universalist identity and history, world religions, spiritual practices, theology, life transitions, and sexuality. Adult religious education programs generally meet at the KUUF office, unless otherwise noted.

Spirit in Practice was created to help Unitarian Universalists develop regular practices that help them connect with the sacred ground of their being, however they understand it. Whether participants follow a path they identify as Humanist, Jewish, Christian, Pagan, Theist, Atheist, Agnostic, Mystic, and/or any of the other paths we follow in our diverse congregations, the Spirit in Practice workshops offer a forum for learning, sharing, and growth that can enrich their faith journeys.

What makes an engaging worship service? This course specially designed for lay leaders will examine the theory and theology behind worship and how to create engaging worship services.

Participants will craft their own twenty-minute sermons by the end of the course. Please note this course is not drop-in and requires a commitment to participate in all eight sessions, and you do not need to be a member of the worship committee to participate.
