Classes for Adults

Throughout the year, we offer Welcome and Membership classes for anyone interested in learning more about Unitarian Universalism or our church in particular, or who would like to join our congregation as members.

 We also offer many other opportunities to explore diverse faith traditions and ways we can grow as individuals, a congregation, and a larger society. Teachers and facilitators of our educational programs include members of the congregation as well as visiting experts, and you don't need to be a church member to sign up. The classes listed below are suitable for adults as well as interested youth, unless otherwise noted. (Children's Religious Education is offered on Sunday mornings.)

Please sign up at the Connections Corner in the Atrium of the church, or email office@uulansing.org with your name, phone number, and the class you would like to attend. Let us know if you will need childcare or any other accommodations.

Nia
Nia is a practice that blends martial arts, healing arts, and dance arts to exercise the mind and body. Nia expresses the joy of movement as each individual moves in their own body’s way to music. All fitness levels are welcome to Nia classes, which are done barefoot and deliver whole-body conditioning. Certified Nia Brown Belt instructor Patricia Quinn will teach a series of ten classes on Mondays, March 13 - May 15 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. The fee is $5 per class; drop-ins welcome.


Advance Care Planning
Kristy Stuart and Gabi Mayer, certified ACP facilitators, will hold a workshop on Tuesday, May 16, 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. in the Augusta Jane Chapin Room. This workshop will help you prepare a Michigan Patient Advocate Designation and communicate your plan to your advocate, physician, and loved ones.

Register at church after Sunday worship services, or contact the church office. Scholarships are available for classes with fees, and childcare and accessibility needs can be arranged. Fees can be paid by check, cash, or online here
