During the program year (Sept. through April), we offer Sunday morning adult education sessions after worship and fellowship time. Most weeks feature guest speakers whose topics range from immigration policy to recycling practices. Topics and speakers are posted here in advance.
During the pandemic, we're offering weekly Adult Ed sessions via zoom, every Sunday morning at 11:15. The link is https://uccnb-org.zoom.us/j/97280145269.
November's Sunday Morning Adult Education:
Nov. 1: Celebrating our Saints
This will be an extended opportunity from the morning's worship to share about some of the “saints” of our lives. Everyone will have a couple minutes to tell us a small something about the person(s) they are remembering at this time.
Nov. 8: Election Aftermath Share and Prayer (aka “Communal Sigh”)
We have all been carrying a lot of anxiety about the elections in this season. This session will be an opportunity to share feelings, thoughts, concerns, hopes (striving all the while to be inclusive and sensitive to the fact that we do not all vote the same!). We will join in prayer and shared support in whatever forms it might need to take to recognize our common humanity in these difficult times.
Nov. 15: Transgender and Non-Binary Queeries
Organized and moderated by our Open and Affirming Team, this session will consist of a panel of transgender and non-binary folk who will reflect on their experiences, challenges, and moments of grace. In particular, we will ask about ways their communities have been helpful—and not helpful—as they transitioned. Please join us for this very important conversation!
Nov. 22: It’s Still a Day to Give Thanks!
Remembering the reason for the season – all are invited to join us for a time of sharing about the things for which we are grateful in this time. Honoring the spiritual practice of gratitude, we invite everyone to come ready to share a story. And stay tuned, there may be other ways we
can have fun in this Zoom hour!
Nov. 29: Advent Story Hour I – Seasons of Waiting/Expectation/Preparation/Anticipation
Three or four members of the church will be sharing longer (10-15 minutes each) times of waiting, expectation, preparation, or anticipation as we enter the Advent season that honors these things in our liturgical year. Please join us.
