Adult Religious Education
Would you like to explore your own faith a little more deeply?
Are you curious about faith traditions other than the ones you have known? Would you like to find a spiritual community where religion is not the only topic you can discuss on a Sunday morning? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then the adult RE program at UUFWS welcomes you.
Unitarian Universalism is a dynamic and diverse faith that has evolved from Judeo/Christian traditions and has been shaped by many other faiths and cultures. You are invited to learn about the effect that religion has had on history, literature and world culture and how it impacts us today. Join us if you would like to build on your own religious experience in an open and accepting environment.
Sunday Morning Forum (ongoing)
This adult discussion program is offered every Sunday before the worship service. Topics include current events, books, travel, community action, careers and social issues. Coffee is served at 8:45 and the presentation/discussion begins at 9 in the RE wing of our building. On a typical morning, about 30 people gather for lively discussions, and you need not be a member of the Fellowship to join in. Just show up ready to think, listen and participate. Each week’s topics are listed on the home page and on the calendar at this website.
Being a UU (ongoing)
Prospective members, current members and guests are invited to a rotating series of three sessions about Unitarian Universalism and the Winston-Salem Fellowship. Topics are: UU History, Discerning Your Spiritual Journey and Getting Involved at UUFWS. Sessions are generally held at 8:30 a.m. on the fourth Sunday of every month in the Fellowship library. A continental breakfast is served and child care can be arranged with advance notice. Check the calendar for what class is coming up next. To RSVP or for more information, e-mail email@example.com
