The Adult Enrichment programs of UUCS are created to support the wider mission of the church to Create Community, Find Meaning and Work for Justice. Our programs are presented for adults to give us the chance to go deeper – intellectually, socially, ethically, and spiritually. Utilizing curriculum recommended by the Unitarian Universalist Association and the expertise of our community and individual members, our goal is to provide quality, relevant and meaningful experiences, instruction and discussion to our adult members.

All of our groups are currently meeting on ZOOM. Please check your email for the weekly Zoom links email sent to UUCS Members and Friends or contact the meeting host for more information.
