2020, our "Year of Discovery!" Throughout this year, programming throughout First Church will explore these three questions...
  • How do we want to be together?
  • How do we hold one another?
  • How do we sustain ourselves?
Here is what Adult Faith Development has planned!



Fourth Friday Tad Talks

Like a Ted Talk, but a tad different... Our church, and indeed our city, is filled with experts. Join us for this monthly program, brought to you by Adult Faith Development, to hear one of these experts share their wisdom a la Ted Talks. With 15 minutes allocated to presentation, and 15 minutes allocated to moderated discussion, this is a quick and easy way for adults and youth to live into our third principle: "We're free to learn together!" Please note, all sessions will be recorded, and posted on First Church's YouTube channel for later viewing.

The first of these programs, Finding Joy in the Middle of Crisis, presented by Rev. Mary Tarbell-Green, will take place Friday, September 25, from 7:00 PM to 7:30 PM, and is open to all adults and teens alike.  As a hospital chaplain, Mary has many years of experience holding, and uplifting those in crisis.  Come, hear her speak on this subject, and then share your own thoughts and questions during a moderated discussion.  Register by days end Thursday.  Just click on the flyer below.  Connectivity information will be sent morning of.

Finding Joy in the Middle of Crisis

Sharing Circles

Sharing Circles, otherwise known as small groups, gives you the opportunity to dive deep. Through insightful readings and probing questions, you and your fellow group members (about 5 - 7 people) will explore one topic a month, building trust and community along the way.  These are difficult times - connect, converse, and share compassion through our Sharing Circles.

This program will kick off in October via Zoom (group assignments and connectivity information to be sent within the first week).  Please register by September 30, 2020.  Register by clicking on the flyer below.

Sharing Circles 1

Spirit in Practice

Seeking spiritual grounding during these turbulent times? Spirit in Practice was created to help Unitarian Universalists develop regular disciplines, or practices, of the spirit—practices that help them connect with the sacred ground of their being, however they understand it. Spirit in Practice affirms religious diversity while seeking unity in our communal quest for meaning and wholeness.

This program will be offered on the Second Saturday of every month, starting in October, from 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM via zoom (connectivity information to be sent before each session).  Consistent attendance is not required.  Register once, attend when able!  Just click the flyer below to register.

First Unitarian Church of Cincinnati Presents


Widening the Circle of Concern

This summer, the UUA's Commission on Institutional Change (COIC) released their report titled, "Widening the Circle of Concern." Join us one evening a month to discuss the themes presented in the report.

This program will be offered the third Wednesday of every month, starting in October, from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM via Zoom.  Register by clicking on the flyer below.  Again, consistent attendance is not required, but it is encouraged.  Register once, attend when able!  Connectivity information will be sent the morning of each session.

Widening The Circle of Concern


The Wi$dom Path

Through this program participants will build awareness of their own “money story” and explore their own attitudes and experiences with money. They will explore the ways in which money connects us with others, including issues of classism and economic justice as well as money issues in congregational life, then delve into ways to align faith, values, and a sense of a life calling with their financial ways of being.

This program will be offered over 5 consecutive Saturday mornings, 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM, starting January 30, 2021. Registration required (zoom link will be sent morning of the first session). Register by now by clicking on the flyer below.
