UU Theology

What do Unitarian Universalists believe? What are our values, and where do they come from? What does it mean to be a pluralistic, covenantal faith? For new UUs and long-time members alike. Class is limited to 15 participants, and will gather Wednesday evenings October 3 - November 14 (taking off for Halloween).


UU Orientation

The UU Elevator Speech

You've been a member for a while, and want to see our faith grow. But have you thought about *how* to share our "good news"? Imagine you have just two minutes to tell someone how cool Unitarian Universalism is - what would you say? This quick three-week class can teach you how. Note: this class is for First Unitarian members only. Class will be in January 2019


UU History

Unitarianism and Universalism are old, rich faith traditions that joined forces in 1961 to become UU. Where did these two faiths come from? Who are the important historic figures, and what are the important ideas? What does it all mean for how we live our faith today? Class begins April 3, 2019.
