Whether you are a newcomer or a longtime Emersonian, 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.

Due to guidance from the Unitarian Universalist Association as well as our local health department, we have suspended all at-church programs through September 2021. Some learning is continuing online.

The link to join is in our e-blast and you can also find the link here on Sunday morning.
