Adult Formation offers opportunities for adults to grow their faith and reflect on their spiritual journey. There is no one way to grow in faith as an adult. We offer Practice Groups that meet weekly, bi monthly or monthly. We offer classes Fall, Winter, and Spring on a range of topics. We offer opportunities to join Small Groups at Fall and Winter Sign Up Sundays. Small Groups are caring circles that offer service to the church and wider community and reflect on our monthly themes.

Dogwood Spirit Circle

Dogwood Spirit Circle is an Earth Centered-Pagan Spirituality Group at First UU. We started our group in January 2017 and became a CUUPS Chapter in February 2020. CUUPS stands for Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans.

The mission of the Dogwood Spirit Circle is to provide a safe and welcoming space for all to learn and practice Earth-centered spirituality in peace, openness, and compassion. We adhere to the seventh tenet of the Unitarian Universalist principles, to have “respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.” Welcoming to all paths, we honor and help our community find joy in ourselves, our connection with the Earth, and each other as we celebrate the Divine in its limitless forms.

For the 8 total Solstices and Equinoxes celebrated during the year, we turn the Wheel with celebration of Ritual with music, meditation, energy work to help heal the Earth our Mother, ourselves and all our relations. We honor the Goddess and Gods within each of us and each other and the Universe. We are totally eclectic as is Unitarian Universalism in Freedom of Belief in finding our own truths while connecting to Earth Centered Spirituality/Paganism.

We offer monthly workshops on the last Sunday of the month.

Pagan Day Out will be an every-other-month community service to Evergreen Cemetery, cleaning up the overgrown old Afro-American cemetery. (Weather permitting.)

A calendar of events is posted quarterly on the Facebook page and sent out via email. Reminders sent out monthly.
