    Leader:
  • This group meets once per month on Saturday for discussions that deepen spiritual awareness and provide opportunity for supportive fellowship. The format includes readings on a pertinent spiritual topic.

  • Autobiographical Spiritual Odyssey
    Autobiographical Spiritual Odyssey

    BYOT guides participants through case studies, group sharing and introspective exercises aimed at self evaluation of one's beliefs and how they may have evolved over time. The facilitator attempts to provide a safe place for open sharing and exploration while also moving the group through the material for each session. Many UUs find that they want to periodically revisit and may re-enroll in BYOT multiple times as years go by.

Classes this Sunday


[field_group] - Celebrating Me and My World: I Can Help
Sunday, 17 December 2017 -
10:30am to 11:30am
| (Children's Class Session)

Young children love to help because it is a good way of gaining the approval they seek. It also allows them to participate in the adult world. Affirming a child's help increases their sense of self-worth and their community identity.

[field_group] - Spirit Play: Signs of Caring
Sunday, 17 December 2017 -
10:30am to 11:30am
| (Children's Class Session)

Signs of Our Faith Curriculum
As Unitarian Universalists, we believe members of communities take care of each other. This session identifies ways we care for others in our families, at school, in the congregation, and in the wider world. Children learn about the common Unitarian Universalist ritual of sharing joys and concerns.
