The mission statement of Adult Faith Development is: Offering opportunities for religious education, theological exploration, shared knowledge and spiritual growth to the beloved community.
Two of the Seven Principles that Unitarian Universalists affirm and promote form the rationale for engaging in Adult Faith Development:
Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations (3rd Principle); and
A free and responsible search for truth and meaning (4th Principle)
Please join us this fall on our explorations into our faith! Each of the courses offered this fall will focus on a text that can be ordered for you; when you register (either on a sign-up sheet on the hallway table or through our website uuaugusta.org) please indicate that you would like the book to be ordered for you. You will pay the facilitator for it at the first session of the course. In order to maximize the benefit of our group experience, the courses will have a limit of ten people, and consistent attendance is expected.
To sign up online for one (or multiple classes) please click this link here: https://goo.gl/FhVwT6 A form will open up for you to fill out and reserve your spot.
We also have weekly spiritual practices that will start this fall. These will occur before church. To sign up for those go to this link here: https://goo.gl/Plcnuu

It’s Registration Time!!
Now is the time to fill out new 2015-2016 Religious Education Registration Forms for your children and youth!
Our goal is to have a new form (one with the years 2015-2016 at the top) on file for ALL children and youth. The first class to have 100% new forms by September 13th will get special recognition in the October Newsletter and have the first ice cream celebration. As each class reaches 100%, the class will be treated with their own ice cream social. Forms are available two ways. You may either download the form here at our website from this link http://uuaugusta.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/Student-and-Parent-Registration-Form-2015-2016.doc and email them to our Director of Children's R.E. at her email address: . You may also print them and bring them to church to turn in. Forms are also available at the C.Y.R.E. Registration Table in the R.E. Hallway on Sunday. The new forms ensure we are up to date with contact information and details relevant to your child’s needs. Thank you in advance for your cooperation in helping us to meet this goal.
