Programs for Adults

Our Lifespan Faith Formation programs are designed to help us live our third and fourth principles out at church: encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations, and a free and responsible search for truth and meaning. Many different programs are offered throughout the year – some just for adults, and some for intergenerational groups. Below is a list of offerings for the year. Check the UUCM Calendar and e-news for more information on these offerings as they arise.


The Souhegan Valley Insight Meditation Group

Each Tuesday from 6-7:30pm

Insight meditation (or Vipassana) is an ancient Buddhist practice aimed at helping us see clearly into the nature of our minds and the world around us. Each session will include instructions in sitting and walking meditation, a brief talk and group discussion. Appropriate for all levels of meditators, even those with no prior experience. In keeping with the ancient Buddhist tradition, the teachings will be offered on a “dana” or donation basis.

For more information or to be added to the email notification list, please contact the group facilitator, Delia Kostner at deliakostner@gmail.com.

Rev. Barbara recommends this practice for increasing clarity and well-being.


Collaborative Worship

Would you like to be a part of worship planning next year? If you can’t commit to a whole year of monthly meetings, but would like to help with services for just one month (or two), we have a new format for you to consider. Worship next year will definitely be rich with substance and spiritual stimulation, with a clear message and more visuals, music, short readings, poetry, stories or movement. Those who sign up for a particular month and its theme will work with Rev. Carol and a core group from the Worship Committee to create services around the theme for two of the Sundays that month. Brainstorm with us! Be creative and get to be a voice in the service if you like. Share your talents for music, art, storytelling, or movement. You might offer a brief (less than 10 minutes) exploration of your thoughts on the theme and have help combining them with music and visuals. The themes for this 2017-2018 are listed below. December and January already have volunteers, but if hope or intention appeal to you, please jump in. If you’d like to join the team for a particular month, contact Nancy Baker  ntbaker@att.net  or  673-7659
