UUCP offers adult classes throughout the year, typically running weekly for 4-10 sessions. Classes are facilitated by members and occasionally staff, and are designed ourselves or adapted from curricula from other sources. Topics have included the development of Unitarianism and Universalism; exploration of the foundations of other faith traditions, such as Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism; Biblical elements compatible with UU sensibilities; pre-Judeo traditions that treated the female as divine; and Coming of Age for adults.

Great UU Sermons
2nd Thursday of each month at 3 pm AZ time, starting October 14. Ongoing monthly series studying a classic sermon from an important UU Minister from history, such as Ralph Waldo Emerson and Theodore Parker.
5 sessions on Wednesdays at 7 pm AZ time, starting November 17. We at UUCP come from many different backgrounds, and some of the words we use may have connotations that we now find troublesome. We will compile a list and work it through, exploring old meanings and new interpretations.

7 Sundays at 1pm from Jan 16 – Feb 27. Are you interested in aligning what you profess to value (racial equity) with your actual practice (anti-racist action)?
