Whether you are a newcomer or have been coming to Emerson for decades, whether you are interested in probing life’s most persistent questions or finding out what others think about today’s news, we have something for you here.

Emerson offers lectures and discussions to encourage life-long spiritual growth. These classes are free and open to the public, providing spiritual nourishment to the community.

Adult Religious EducationIn the 2018 church year, we plan to study:

There will be a four part series of offerings on the UUA and UUSC Love Resists campaign dealing with the criminalization of marginalized communities presented by representatives of front line organizations resisting this criminalization and how Emersonians can become valued allies in such resistance.

In addition, there will be three part series delving into the material presented in the UUA Common Read Daring Democracy.

We will also have multiple offerings focused on the rich variety of spiritual practices detailed in the highly acclaimed Everyday Spiritual Practice: Simple Pathways for Enriching Your Life edited by Scott Alexander, as well as those practiced by Emersonians.

In addition, we’ll discuss a current social justice issue one Sunday each month.

Check the church newsletter as well as Meetup for the current months topic. We meet most Sundays (check for exact dates) from 10:00 to 10:45 AM.

Free childcare is available during Sunday activities, please email or give us a call (713-782-8250) to check on availability.  Our nursery provides care for infants and toddlers and is staffed by childcare professionals.

Our goal is not to provide all of the answers, but to aid in setting people on the path to discovery. In the spirit of the Fourth Principle of the Unitarian Universalist Association…“We covenant to affirm and promote…A free and responsible search for truth and meaning.”
