The Unitarian Society of Northampton and Florence believes that the spiritual life is not a destination but a journey.  We provide adult religious education classes and forums to help members and friends along the path they have chosen for that journey.  Some offerings specifically address religious questions.  Others explore ethical and political questions of contemporary relevance.  Still others present subjects of general interest.  All are intended to stimulate reflection, discussion, and fellowship. Sessions are offered following the Sunday service and during weeknights.

During this time of COVID-19, we have shifted all adult education class to online offerings to support people at this time. Check out our Facebook page for virtual social events.

These connection circles will happen online over Zoom (in addition to our regularly scheduled small groups). You can access Zoom through a computer, tablet, or phone to participate.
