Being UU: Adult Faith Development
Mission: In support of the goals of our church, we invite personal transformation through opportunities to deepen, connect, and engage to nurture lives faithful to our Unitarian Universalist values.
Our offerings are designed to enhance faith formation in a Unitarian Universalist context. Offerings are intended to stimulate our sense of community and enrich the spiritual and intellectual lives of JUC members and friends by helping to:
- seek greater understanding of Unitarian Universalist theology and heritage;
- develop cultural competency in our members and friends; and
- cultivate our individual and collective spiritual practices and sense of well-being.
Shared Theology Groups
Humanism is a major source of our UU tradition. We investigate Humanist philosophy, life stance and modern expressions of service and community building.
UU Liberal Christians
3rd Tuesdays, 7 p.m.
We are an open group that welcomes the exploration of what modern scholars call the ’emerging paradigm’, which focuses on Jesus as an important historical figure who by example brought much wisdom to the world. We consider the Bible a humanly created, historical collections of writings, the product of ancient communities: Judaic and Christian.
Founded in 2009 by a JUC member and student at Iliff Theological Seminary, and convened since 2011 by lay leaders, the UU Liberal Christians of Jefferson Unitarian Church hold a variety of religious and spiritual beliefs. We gather regularly for discussion, book study, and presentations relating to progressive Christianity. We also gather in prayer, meditation, wisdom tradition scripture study, and spiritual practices honoring the traditions of our Christian roots within the larger movement of Unitarian Universalism.
