New for 2021-22 – Shared Pulpit RE:

We’re partnering with our Shared Pulpit siblings to offer Adult RE among our 5 congregations. This means that anyone in the 5 congregations can attend any Adult RE programs offered unless otherwise noted.

Current offerings (newest listed first):

  • Ginger Hill UU is offering Adult RE on Thursday evenings at 7:30pm.
  • Center for Loving Kindness offers multi-faith “Sofa Spirituality” videos and learning opportunities (see the MIM section of the July monthly eNews).
  • Social Justice Book Club, hosted by the Monroeville Public Library, meets monthly, next session is Wednesday July 14 at 7 p.m. to discuss “Disabled Voices Anthology” edited by multiple authors.
  • Ongoing ESUUC programs: “Singing the Living Tradition” (2 sections), and Small Group Ministry (following Soul Matters themes).  

If you’re interested in self-study, or simply exploring UU curricula, see the “Tapestry of Faith” web page ( “Embodying lifespan faith development for our congregations, Tapestry of Faith is a collection of curricula and resources that nurture Unitarian Universalist identity, spiritual growth, a transforming faith, and vital communities of justice and love.”
