Central Union Church-Adult Education Ministry

Learning Tree is a program our church uses to help keep members informed and engaged in the community and the world. We believe in keeping current, keeping our minds sharp, and in trying to help improve things for our fellow citizens and the future generations. Once a month, Learning Tree features a speaker from outside the church community in many diverse areas and on many diverse topics. To plant a seed, without knowing exactly how and where it will bear fruit. Learning Tree also features group discussions, testimonials about personal faith journeys, and deeper examinations of how things touched on in a sermon can be applied to everyday lives and human problems.

Parking is available on the Ewa/West side of the CUC campus. The Learning Tree is held in The Women’s Building which is Diamond Head/ East of the Sanctuary (the church with the high steeple). The Learning Tree takes place on Sundays from 10:15 to 11 AM and is preceded by the Aloha Lanai snack and coffee service just outside the Women’s Building.
