More General Information about Adult Religious Education classes that you may find helpful:
- Classes listed here are held at RRUUC primarily but others may be ones offered by others in the community and some may be online. All “curated” class information provided here meets the vision of Fellowship, Spirit and Service and has some relationship to RRUUC.
- Many classes charge a fee and ask you to register (done by clicking the blue highlighted class name) while some classes are drop-in and ask for a free-will offering. Note: Fee-based classes help support classes and programs where training of leaders and/or payment of outside presenters is necessary. Additionally, fees provide scholarships allowing anyone to fully participate. The fee covers only a small portion of the costs with the remaining costs covered by congregant pledges to the congregation’s annual stewardship campaign. Full refunds are available for any class prior to the refund deadline.
- Some classes may ask for an accompanying application or questions to ensure a diverse participant group or to invite written reflection.
