spiritual growth

There are many opportunities for spiritual growth and development at PUUC beyond Sunday morning worship. Scroll down to learn what is going on and how to get involved. 



The Third Act: Conversations to Inform and Support our Later Years 

1st Thursday, 3 p.m., Stage

This group is open to UU participants and their friends who want to share and reflect on living in their “later years”. There are many aspects to cover on this topic, and each session will focus on a new one. Topics may include life transitions, change in self or partner health or mental health, role reversals, end of life concerns (e.g. legal necessities, burial options), support services, identity transformation, and more. Leadership will rotate, based on who may identify interest in a particular subject. 


The group meets on the first Thursday afternoon of the month at 3 p.m.; coffee, tea, and cookies will be available. If you have any questions or thoughts, please email Bev Spiro (


Sacred Circle Dance

Second Friday of the month in the Parish Hall, (excluding August) from 6:00 to 7:00 pm

PUUC will host a participatory Sacred Circle Dance for members, friends, and the general public.  Beginners are more than welcome on any of the dates and no partner is necessary. Each dance will be patiently taught by Lucy van Leeuwen, who has been teaching Sacred Circle Dance (SCD) professionally for 20 years.

Please bring or wear comfortable shoes. Masks are optional, but most participants are willing to mask if someone prefers that. The program is free, though donations are appreciated and will benefit “End 68 Hours of Hunger.” Please arrive a few minutes early as dance instruction begins promptly; just enter through the back door parking lot and come up the stairs or take the elevator to the Parish Hall.

Please contact with questions or to join the SCD email list.


Meditation group

Weekly on Tuesday evenings, 6-7 pm, Parish Hall

Every Tuesday evening from 6:00 to 7:00 the PUUC hosts a meditation hour open to all. 

Please enter through the back door by the lower parking lot. Come up the stairs, or take the elevator to the Parish Hall and remove your shoes before entering the hall. Please come a few minutes early so as not to disturb participants. The hour will start with a brief reading which will be followed by two 20-minute silent sitting meditations with brief walking meditation between. 

This is not a class, so some experience with meditation is necessary. Bring your own cushion, or use one of the available chairs, the floor is hard and cold! 

Contact Bryan at for more information or to join the meditation email list.


Caregiver’s Support Group 


Caregivers share concerns, stresses, tips, laughter, and support with one another in a safe, friendly, and non-judging environment. Contact Peggy Brown ( for more information and to join the group.




Small-group Ministry 


Small-group ministry provides an opportunity for congregants to deepen their spiritual experience and develop strong relationships with a consistent group of other members. Groups begin in the fall and meet monthly. They have used the Unitarian Universalist “Soul Matters Sharing Circle” materials as the guide.
