Adult Faith Formation Opportunities
We are happy to invite you to participate in any or all of these upcoming Faith Formation Opportunities offered here at 1stUUPB! This list includes opportunities made available by other congregations who have invited our members to participate. Let’s use this opportunity to stimulate our minds, touch our emotions and invigorate our souls.
1stUUPB News Talk
Sundays, 9:00am – 10:00am
Led by Drew Davis and Bob Burns, this long-lived staple of our congregation continues to provide excellent review of current events and how they impact our lives. Our minister says that if they had awards for such series, this one would win one, for sure. Grab a cup of coffee and come by if you can, don’t worry about missing or how long you can stay. All are welcomed. Check the weekly newsletters for links to the Zoom meeting.
Racial Justice Film Series “When They See Us”
Saturdays, 12:30pm – 2:30pm
We are kicking off our Film Series with Ava DuVernay’s (Selma, A Wrinkle in Time, Queen Sugar) 5-part series When They See Us. A 2019 dramatization of the events of the 1989 attack on a White female jogger who was raped and beaten in NYC’s Central Park, it follows the lives of the five Black and Latino youth who were falsely accused, quickly prosecuted and jailed for years before eventually being exonerated for the crimes.
There will be a discussion after each episode led by Wayne Johnson.
Other dates are on the following Saturdays at 12:30 p.m.:
All are welcome! Bring your friends and family.
Small Group Ministries
Small Group Ministries, known throughout Unitarian Universalism as “Covenant Circles” or “Covenant Groups” or by other names are standing groups ranging from 6 to 12 individuals who agree to meet on a regular basis (normally every other week). The meetings involve check-ins and discussions of various meaningful topics. Groups are forming and disbanding all the time, but generally meet for a year or two as agreed upon by the participants. Contact Chari Campbell at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in learning more.
Second Saturday (Nov – Apr), 10:00AM – 12:30PM
Dorie Maxwell embarks on the 2022-23 season of the Book Group. Most of our selections are contemporary novels, complemented with a few classics and non-fiction. We enjoy broadening our awareness by reading books set in various parts of the world. All are welcome to these discussions.
