Adults & Seniors

Caregiver's and Grief Support Groups

This group gathers on the 1st and 3rd (and any 5th) Monday of the month at 1:30 for anyone that would like to attend. All are welcome, no matter what kind of caregiving you are doing or grief you are experiencing.

Adult Education Hour

Sunday mornings, September through May

Each week we hear from a guest speaker, a covenanted minister, or a congregation member about a wide range of topics:

  • Ministries we support and how we can continue to participate
  • Updates from committees and ministries of the church
  • Congregational commitments, such as our Open and Affirming and Just Peace stances, and how we can learn more or deepen our commitment
  • Our beloved review of the movies and books that have fed our souls over the last year
  • Sharing by some of our "Saints Alive," our newest intern, or others willing to share part of their life stories
  • Weekday Morning Bible Study Group

    Thursdays at 9:30 a.m., September through May

    Traditionally, UCCNB has had a Lectionary-based Bible Study, so members of the group help in the preparation of the preaching through these thoughtful and meaningful conversations.

    Isaiah Core Group

    Each month we meet on the 3rd Sunday, after Adult Education (around 12:15) to discuss some of our advocacy involvements, and to learn about how to best engage in justice ministries. This is not a closed group. All are welcome.

    Salad Lunch

    First Thursday of each month

    These lunches are open to anyone who would like to join us. (You don't have to be a senior!) Each time we gather, there is a short program offered by a member of the church or a special guest. These programs range from travelogues to interactive activities; from working together on funeral plans and end-of-life concerns to celebrating birthdays and holidays together.

    Prayer Circle

    Every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month at 11:00

    This group gathers to hold in prayer all the joys and concerns shared in the church and in the world.

    Meditation Group

    Each Sunday morning at 8:50

    This groups meets for silent meditation before our Sunday worship service begins.

    Meals Together Groups

    Each year any interested folks are organized together into small groups (10-12 people) to have meals together at each others' homes or out at restaurants. These are wonderful ways to get to know people in more informal contexts.

    Bridge Group

    Third Wednesday of every month at 1:00 p.m., in the fireside room.

    Note: From the end of June to the beginning of September, we are on a "summer schedule," so some of these groups may not meet during the summer.
