Adult Religious Exploration

Also known as Lifespan Learning. 

Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists offers a wide array of programs for all ages that enrich and deepen the lives of our community. If you have an idea for a Lifespan Learning event, workshop, class, or group please submit the proposal form by the appropriate deadline.

Tuesdays Together: a Lifespan Religious Exploration program

Each Tuesday we start off with a potluck and circle worship from 6 - 7 pm in the Connie Barbour Room. (Please bring a dish to share or a small monetary contribution.) At 7 pm everyone splits off to either a committee meeting or an enrichment activity.
