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.

Please check the e-Blast for upcoming sessions.

Every woman who is a member of Central Union is a member of the Women’s League. We invite you to explore the ways you can enliven your membership.

As Women of Faith, we enjoy a RAINBOW of JOYFUL CONNECTIONS! They may look a bit different right now, but we are determined to honor those connections in a reimagined retreat. Your Planning Team has designed a retreat that celebrates our connections and respects the current need for distancing.

2020 CUC Women’s Retreat: Sisters, Sand & Spirit!

We are connected as women of faith! We are connected by our memories of each other and past retreats! We are connected in God’s Spirit of never-failing love! The retreat will be experienced in TWO PARTS . . .

Part ONE (in late October): ** Special Delivery “Retreat-in-an-Envelope” …appearing in your mailbox.

Part TWO (Nov. 6 @ 6PM): ** Retreat Zoom Gathering for connection and inspiration!

We invite you to register on-line for this year’s retreat. This year’s offering is designated to the UCC Transition House, a safe house for women and their children who are survivors of domestic violence. You will have an opportunity to give to the Special Offering when you register. More information about accessing the Zoom Gathering will be in the “special delivery” mailing.
