There are many programs for adults at UUCPA. This includes special classes offered by the Adult Learning Journey committee as well as ongoing group meetings and events.
Adult Learning Journey (ALJ)
formerly Adult Religious Education (ARE)
The Unitarian Universalist Church of Palo Alto, through the Adult Learning Journey committee, offers an array of classes, groups, and events designed to support and enhance the lifelong spiritual explorations of our adult members, friends, and visitors.
Our offerings encourage participants to open their minds and hearts to new understandings, to share their diverse experiences with one another, and to engage in compassionate action outside of the congregation.
Classes encourage the continued spiritual and ethical exploration of Unitarian Universalist values through learning about diverse faiths, philosophies, and wisdom traditions, as well as pursuing a deeper understanding of our Unitarian Universalist identity and principles. All Adult Learning Journey classes are offered at no charge.
For information on any Adult Learning Journey class, seminar or workshop, contact the church office (650-494-0541), or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Workshops will include a variety of activities and discussion on topics such as Sexuality and Values, Communication, Spirituality, the Sexual Self and Other, Sexual Diversity, Kink, and many others.
