Lifelong Learning - Adult Activities & Education
If one of these offerings piques your interest (and you don't see a specific contact person), reach out to UUC's Campus Administrator (email@example.com)for additional information. You'll be connected with the group's organizer.
Friday Book Club
Would you like to engage in conversations about the characters and themes of writers in a book club? Want to discuss literary writing? Friday Book Club is an all-welcome, drop-on-in group that meets in the Maxwell Library (on campus @ UUC) on select Fridays (from 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM). Check the calendar for specific dates.
Compassion & Choices (end-of-life)
Are you seeking education about end-of-life choices that might crop up in your life? Wondering how to manage medical treatments or options near the end of life? Learn about ways to have a peaceful death surrounded by family and friends. Get on a mailing list to receive resources and educational information.
Would you like to know more about a prominent free-thought community? We met on the 3rd Sunday of every month @ 12:30 PM. Hear a speaker address topical issues of interest to members.
Are you interested in discussing current events, what feeds your soul, and what keeps you grounded? As the world gets more uncertain, we think supporting each other is essential. The weekly virtual offering takes place on Fridays @ 1:00 PM on Zoom (Meeting ID: https://zoom.us/j/98442090304). Everyone is welcome. For more information about Spiritual Potpourri, check out our online calendar.
Want to meditate midweek? A weekly mindfulness meditation group meets on Wednesday nights @ 5:30 PM on Zoom (https://zoom.us/j/96648146323) We welcome a range of styles and levels. We hold each other in the "magic" of community, a UU version of the sangha. Hosts rotate each week, and the sessions feature motion, guided and silent meditation. Anyone is welcome to attend. For more information about this offering, visit our online calendar.
Want a safe place to talk about living a more authentic and intentional life? Would you be able to meet monthly for spiritual growth? Covenant groups are open to members, pledging friends, as well as those on the path to membership.
Want to help select and display art in UUC's art gallery? Enjoy hanging art, attending and helping with receptions? A reception for each show is publicized, and artists receive 70% if their piece sells, while UUC gets 30%. The summer months hosts pieces made by UUC members and friends, but all other art installations feature local artists.
Anastasia Maxwell Library
This wonderful "hidden secret" here at UUC is located off of the Social Hall. UUC members and friends are free to explore the library's many titles, donated by renowned local author (and writer for the former St. Pete Times), Bill Maxwell. Hours for the library vary, so check with the front office if you'd like to stop by (or if you're interested in becoming a volunteer librarian).
Wish you could mention a contentious topic and have a safe space to discuss it? Open Issues is the place! We always need people to help us devise topics and secure guest speakers. Our goal is to learn more than we think we know. We meet most Sundays (check the calendar!) @ 9:30 AM in the Patio Room on campus (we also share Open Issues via Zoom: https://zoom.us/j/96665631829
