Adult & Family Programs

The Adult & Family Programs Sub-Council provides lectures, classes, workshops and other offerings for continued spiritual growth, religious learning, and community fellowship. Programs are intended to be of broad appeal while meeting the needs of particular groups where practical and appropriate.

The sponsors of these classes, programs and events affirm the Society’s anti-discriminatory position by offering them at a range of times and in accessible locations, accommodating special needs as a standard practice and welcoming all individuals and families.

Information about various programs may be found on the programs table in Fellowship Hall.  If a program interests you, help yourself.  There is a $5 registration fee.

To register for a program or event, contact the designated person in charge of the event.

Good news! In cooperation with UUS:E in Manchester and the Universalist Church of West Hartford, we will be offering Wellspring, a 10-month curriculum of uniquely UU spiritual development successfully implemented in thirty other UU congregations. Beginning in September and meeting twice a month through mid-June, we will deepen our spiritual lives through small group connections, daily spiritual practice, spiritual direction, readings and other resources. There will be two small Wellspring groups, one during the day facilitated by Judy Robbins and an evening group facilitated by Tom Gervais. Participants will be drawn from the three churches and meeting places will rotate among the churches. 

Wellspring’s practical tools:

  • help us get and keep our balance and put our beliefs into action;
  • challenge participants to experience new ideas on the path of spiritual exploration; 
  • provide practice in the transformative skill of deep listening;
  • help clarify a sense of Unitarian Universalist identity and calling.

People are saying:

“Being a part of the Wellspring program has allowed me to ‘feed my soul’. I can be with my own thoughts, and truly listen to others. It is quite luxurious to have a time already set aside that I have committed to study, think, listen, speak ….a time just for me.”

“Wellspring was truly transformational for me…among the most powerful experiences I’ve had as a UU.”

Because Wellspring is offered conjointly, space is very limited so you must indicate your interest asap. A waiting list may be necessary. For more information, see the Wellspring website https://uuwellspring.org/ or contact Judy Robbins at judyrobb2@gmail.com or 860-633-3348.
