Adult Learning at UU Wellesley is coordinated by the UU Learning Community (UULC). Our charge is to create a program consistent with Unitarian Universalist principles, through which personal growth is fostered and community bonds strengthened. The UULC offers a wide variety of workshops and events led by members, clergy, and friends of our church, as well as outside speakers, who volunteer to share their expertise or interests. The UULC often partners with leaders of our Social Justice initiatives to examine topics of shared concern. Many programs are open to the public.
The UULC welcomes new ideas for Learning while Connecting! Bring yours to our next meeting to be held on Thursday, August 24 at 9:30am in Rice House. Email the church office HERE for more information.
Check the Calendar for additions and/or changes to our schedule.
