There are numerous educational and enrichment activities for adults at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Greater Naples (UUCGN). These activities provide learning opportunities intended to foster and enrich the intellectual, spiritual, physical, and social health and development of our UUCGN members and the community at large.
Update for 2020:
Over the 2019 summer months, the Adult Enrichment Committee discussed upcoming programs and other initiatives. We will continue organizing and supporting three- and six-month Chalice Circles, will introduce the Faith Forward program more broadly to the congregation, will introduce and, we hope, gain support for the Wonderful Wednesday initiative, and will offer a broad range of Adult Enrichment classes that support the mind/body/spirit interests of the congregation. Planning is ongoing and in some instances advanced, for these programs and initiatives.
Consult the Weekly Highlights to see the upcoming program listings.
We are working well as a team, and our newer members are taking on more and more of the tasks we commit to.

Here are some examples of our long-established and popular UUCGN programs. During the course of the year, we take field trips, have programs on aging well, have discussions about our Sources and Principles, and so much more.
