Adult Education Program

Our adult class offerings feed the soul and refresh the mind. Forums, discussions, and classes on a variety of topics are held throughout the week.

FIRST HOUR - Starting Sunday, September 13th 2015 | 9:00 am

First Hour

Starting on Sunday, September 13th with our move to one service at 10:30 AM, the 9-10 AM time preceding the morning worship service will be called “First Hour” and will provide a lively interactive way for us to come together to build community and further explore our faith and values in a smaller group setting. Coffee will be available during the half hour after First Hour and before the Sunday Service begins, in addition to the regular coffee hour after the service. Activities will be led by our Minister, Director of RE, Music Director, Adult Education and we are interested in having offerings from other lay leaders and congregation members as well. All members, friends, visitors and prospective members are invited to attend, and many offerings will be suitable for the UUCM youth as well! Below is a list of the topics for First Hour in September and we will continue to share more information on the website, future newsletters and the weekly emails and program inserts. If you have a topic, or are interested in leading a First Hour please contact Susan Goll.

Mark your calendars for the 2015 UUCM Women’s Retreat, “Self-Care: Mind, Body, Spirit, Community.” We will gather on Friday and Saturday, October 9 and 10, 2015 again at Camp Eden Wood in Eden Prairie, a secluded, forested 20-acre gem within easy reach of the western suburbs. Once again we hope a large number of women join us at this convenient and beautiful location as we explore our topic with speakers, conversation and relaxation. You are welcome to attend for all or any part of the retreat that works with your schedule: stay from Friday evening through Saturday evening including the overnight; participate just Friday evening or just Saturday; or attend both Friday evening and Saturday and sleep at home. What is important is that you join us!

The fully accessible retreat overlooks Birch Island Lake with the main eating lodge just a few minutes’ walk away. See the Camp Eden Wood website for location and photographs. Please join us — mark your calendar and stay tuned for further details on programming and registration. The 2015 UUCM Women’s Retreat Co-Chairs welcome your questions: Mary Cotton, Joyce Lindquist and Betty Bright.
