Programs for Adults

Our Faith Formation programs are designed to help us live our 3rd and 4th principles: encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations, and a free and responsible search for truth and meaning. Again this year, UUCM is collaborating with UU Nashua and UU Manchester to offer more diverse programming.  Read this brochure from Nashua for a listing of offerings.

Additionally UUCM hosts other opportunities for spiritual growth through programs held at UUCM.  See the UUCM Calendar for details and times:

  • 2nd Friday Song Circle
  • Insight Meditation
  • Kundalini Yoga
  • Sacred Circle Dance

Current Offerings at UUCM

Please let Rev. Carol know as soon as possible if you’d like to participate in any of these opportunities.

Aging As A Spiritual Practice: Four Sessions
Wednesday, Oct. 18, Nov. 1, 15 & 29, 10:30am-12pm

New and Not So New UU: Three Sessions
Tuesdays, Oct. 17, Nov. 21 and Dec. 5 @ 6:30 – 8:00pm

Whether you’re a newcomer or you’ve been a Unitarian since birth, this course may be just what you’ve been looking for. Come share your spiritual journey, explore the roots of Unitarian Universalism, and discuss how UU Principles intersect with life’s daily concerns.

Common Reads: The Third Reconstruction  and Daring Democracy
Three sessions – Nov 7, Jan 18 and April 7

Milford, Nashua and Manchester UU will all be reading and discussing these two powerful and timely books about working together across differences for the values we share. Each church will hold two sessions on their own, then will meet together in the spring for a third session. Books available through Beacon Press if you’d like to order them. Contact office@uucm.org to request a loaner copy and for more information.


Collaborative Worship

Worship this year will definitely be rich with substance and spiritual stimulation, with a clear message and more visuals, music, short readings, poetry, stories or movement. Would you like to be a part of worship planning? 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.
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
