Adult Religious Education

Religious Education is a lifelong pursuit. We offer weekly and monthly events designed to inform and inspire participants with diverse perspectives and experiences. Programming to such a broad audience can result in a loss of depth at times. To counter this, we make an effort to provide a diversity of groups and classes that specialize on certain topics which allows for deeper sharing and caring.  Small groups also serve to get to know members at a deeper level than possible on Sunday mornings. Our Adult Religious Education offerings are often changing to meet the current needs of the congregation and community. Please refer to our monthly newsletter for the most up to date information.

Roads to UU Midland

roads

Members and friends of the church reflect on the life events, questions, and commitments that led them to UU Church of Midland.

Rev. Emily Wright-Magoon will interview one person about their journey to UU Midland. What is it about the church that drew them in? What is it about them that drew them to the church? Then four others will reflect on the interview, asking each other how their stories are similar or different. Then the conversation will open up for all to join in. This popular offering is held on an occasional basis.

Rev. Emily Wright-Magoon leads this three-part series on the Unitarian Universalist faith twice a year. In these sessions, attendees will have the opportunity to learn about UU history, traditions, and membership. These sessions will be geared to those new to UU, but all are invited to attend. The sessions usually run on Wednesday evenings and childcare is usually available. Dessert will be provided. If you are interested, please contact Rev. Emily Wright-Magoon.

Permian Basin Buddhists

Every Tuesday @ 7:00 p.m., the Permian Basin Buddhists  meet at UUCOM for meditation and learning.  While this is not an official UU group, many of our members are active in the group.  This group is designed to provide an introduction of Buddhism to the beginner as well as deepening the practice for those more familiar with Buddhist teachings.

Tree of Life Open Circle

The Tree of Life Open Circle is for those interested in Earth based spiritual practices such as Wicca, Neopaganism, etc. The modern Pagan movement provides a means for people to connect with the daily, monthly, and yearly cycles that continue to affect us physically and emotionally.  Through classes and rituals, the Tree of Life Open Circle explores this connection in an ongoing effort to foster growth and community for kindred spirits of the earth. Everyone is welcome regardless of experience – just bring an open mind and a caring heart. Blessed Be.
