Adult Religious Education
The Adult Religious Education (ARE) program at First UU San Antonio encourages and supports the spiritual, social and intellectual growth of First UU members and visitors. Courses in Unitarian Universalism, world religions, philosophy, science, and history provide a foundation of knowledge, insight, and wisdom to enrich our faith. These opportunities allow participants to learn from one another and from members of the broader community, fostering a vibrant sense of mutual understanding, curiosity, respect, empathy, tolerance, and social justice. We offer a combination of ongoing and short-term Adult Religious Education classes.
