Adult Programs 
Learning & Exploration


Adult programs at AUUF include opportunities to engage in thoughtful discussion, religious exploration, or become involved in activities that support our ministry and UU our principles.

Ongoing Interest Groups

Freethinkers at AUUF

Small Groups / Chalice Circles

  • Contact Rev. Lise Adams Sherry

Small groups and Chalice Circles connect UUs on a deeper level.  Groups of 12 or less meet regularly (often weekly) for a defined period (for example, 8-10 weeks) to reflect and discuss significant life topics. The time together is structured and may include a chalice lighting, focused readings, and a moment of centering silence before participants share their perspectives, tell their stories and listen deeply. 

Hungry Book Club

Avid readers meet monthly to discuss  well-regarded books from wide-ranging topics.  Interested readers meet the second Tuesday, at 2 p.m. at AUUF.  Consult the weekly email newsletter for the next book, and contact Carol for directions to the meeting location.

The Alliance is a small group within our congregants that seeks to support and enhance our fellowship programs. They organize the Spring Rummage Sale, and Winter Holiday Sale to raise funds. The group meets the second Sunday of every month at 12:30 p.m., in the AUUF Library. The Alliance as a group decides how to spend the funds it raises, exclusive of AUUF Board or other groups.
