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. 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 Unitarian Universalist 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.

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’s book Navigating the Coming Chaos: A Handbook for Inner Transition as a focus for the meetings. More info:
