The Lifespan Learning programming is generally held from 11:30 to 12:30 on Sunday mornings after the regular service is over.¬† There are generally a number of programs to choose from, such as Voluntary Simplicity, or a PQRST (Pretty Quick Rehash of the Sermon Topic), sometimes with the minister in attendance.¬† YRUU classes are also held during this time. Join us for one or more of these offerings.¬† Lifespan Learning programming is generally organized around one of four areas; faith development, spiritual growth, academic/intellectual interests or topical subject.
Offerings include one-time events as well as courses that span weeks or months. All are designed to promote personal and spiritual growth and engage participants in a range of experiences that reflect our UU principles and faith. We're saving a seat at the table for you, whether your interest is sharing a particular passion or talent via an Adult Enrichment offering or helping to plan programs.

¬†Spirit of Life Workshops led by Rev. Mark Hayes
Spirit of Life Workshops offer participants space, time and community to explore their Unitarian Universalist spirituality. Each focuses on a different aspect of the spiritual life, framed by the lyrics of Carolyn McDade‚Äôs song ‚ÄúSpirit of Life‚ÄĚ. Like the song, the workshops are designed to be welcoming to Unitarian Universalists of many spiritual and theological persuasions. Participants are invited to claim an inclusive definition of spirituality and recognize the spiritual aspects of their lives.

April 28: Inner Transition
How does what is happening inside us shape the outer world? Many people are beginning to recognize that we need to create ecologically, socially, and economically sustainable systems for providing food, energy, and shelter in order to mitigate the impending two-fold collapse of industrial civilization and the natural systems that support human life on this earth. What is the inner change that goes with this?¬†¬† What does this look like for individuals, groups and communities?
Join Bob Flatley and Kelle Kersten to discuss forming a group at UUFCC that will meet regularly to explore and support the inner dimension of creating a sustainable and just world.¬† We plan to use Carolyn Baker‚Äôs book ‚ÄúNavigating the Coming Chaos: A Handbook for Inner Transition‚ÄĚ to focalize the meetings.
