Our upcoming programs are listed below.


Starting June 2, 2019 Adult RE will begin a twelve week series on “The Phoenix Affirmations” by Eric Elnes. This book documents 12 new affirmations of modern Christianity in America.

Many of us as Unitarian Universalists come to this faith after long, and decidedly troubled relationship with traditional religions. And most often, the religion in question is Christianity. It can take a long time to come to terms with our past problems and to take a fresh, unbiased look at the faith again. This is the purpose of the Phoenix Affirmations. This twelve week series will look at this new liberal form of Christianity, a critical foundation of Unitarian Universalism, and see it for the loving and inclusive religion it strives to be.

Reading the book on your own isn’t necessary for these workshops, but it will provide extra insight into the affirmations. It’s an easy book to get through, too, if you’d like to pick it up. (If you are an Amazon.com shopper, please remember to use your Smile.Amazon.com connection and your purchase will benefit the UUCOC!)
