Lifespan Learning, Chalice Circle Groups, and Other Adult Programs

The Unitarian Universalist tradition of encouraging an individual's search for truth means that within the Unitarian Universalist Church of Lexington, (UUCL), there is a diverse set of beliefs and philosophies that guide our lives. Below are listed some of the adult groups which meet on a fairly regular basis to explore their own belief systems and for mutual support.

For more information about any of these groups and activities, see our newsletter, the UNIVIEW, or send an email to the church.  Especially during the summer months, times may fluctuate. 


Lifespan Learning  (Adult Religious Exploration) Classes

A variety of adult religious exploration classes are sometimes offered on an ad hoc basis, mainly on Wednesday evenings. None are going on at this time.  


 

Chalice Circle Groups
Sometimes called "Covenant Groups," these are intentional gatherings of about 8-12 church members & friends who come together on a specified day, once a month, to build community and exchange ideas.  Chalice Circle Groups started meeting in October 2010.  We are not accepting additional sign ups at this time. 

 


The Humanist Forum

The mission of the Humanist Forum is to ensure that the members and friends of the UUCL are aware of "Humanist teachings which counsel us to heed the guidance of reason and results of science, and warn us against idolatries of the mind and spirit."

Our meetings are open to all people of all beliefs, and those of none. We have no committee organization with officers. Various interested parties take turns leading meetings.

The Humanist Forum meets the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 7:00 pm. For more information, email us, Humanist Forum.


UUs inspired by Jesus

Do you consider yourself both a UU and a Christian, or are you interested in exploring Christianity as part of your spiritual journey? If so, please join us after the worship service on the 2nd Sunday of the month. For more information about the Denominational UU Christian Fellowship, please visit http://www.uuchristian.org/.

Sunday Sangha

Sunday Sangha is a group-led adult Buddhist discussion hour that meets on Sundays at 9:45 am in the Allen House next to the church. Each week a different member presents a topic, reading, teaching and/or practice. The conversation is then opened to the group with an intention to more fully understand and apply its principles to modern life. All paths and drop-ins are welcome.
