The UUCA ESOL program provides free classes and conversation sessions geared to adult foreigners who are fairly proficient in English speaking and writing but seek language enrichment, grammar improvement, accent reduction, plus increased knowledge of American culture and idioms. Teacher-led classes are held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Conversation-only sessions are offered on Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings. 

 ESOL includes an email-based English Writing Improvement Program assigns English writing coaches to those wishing to have their writing reviewed and improved. This is an evolving program that might include face-to-face meetings in person or via the Internet.

 ESOL also serves to introduce students to Unitarian Universalism and its place among other religions. ESOL students sometimes attend UUCAVA events and have even become members or friends.

The piece may be, but does not have to be, work they have created themselves. The discussions are not meant to be critical, but personal, and all choices are treated with respect. Preregistration is required.

Classes generally include a guided meditation, a dharma talk and/or experiential exercise. While the classes complement one another, they are also structured as independent from each other – i.e., whatever class you are able to attend should be informative and useful in and of itself. No fee, but donations accepted. Instructor is Jonathan Foust of the Insight Meditation Community of  Washington. See Jonathan's website for more information and class schedule here.

Small group ministries offer opportunities to connect with others at UUCA. Covenant Groups are the most popular type of structured small group in our large congregation. 


These groups are made up of 8 to 12 people who meet on a regular basis to help one another build community and grow spiritually.  Group members get together at church or in homes to talk about spiritual topics such as joy, community, identity, mindfulness, etc. and may use varied materials such as videos, readings, and poems. These are not intellectual discussions but a chance to share what touches one’s heart and soul with others.

Trained facilitators lead the groups, steering the conversation in a respectful and thoughtful manner.  Participants practice deep listening and speaking from their hearts.  Groups identify a community service project where they volunteer together to share UUCA’s commitment to service and deepen bonds among members.

Registration is required.

With people living longer and redefining traditional notions of aging and retirement, a new life stage has emerged – Act 3. Today, many people in their 50s, 60s and beyond are choosing to add these years in the middle versus tacking them on later in a “wind down stage.” While this new life stage offers exciting possibilities, it can also be challenging to navigate without a road map. What possibilities might this life stage hold for you?  Using the Covenant Group themes, we will explore how we can best shape and support each other during this exciting part of our lives. Preregistration is required.

Family Meditation Class for 5-11 year-olds

Classes will be held on the third Sunday of each month from 3:30 - 4:30PM in the Chapel.   

The Family Meditation class provides young children with a mindfulness framework to develop healthy responses to the ever-changing world around and inside of them.  

Children will learn how to express their innate qualities of being present with what is happening, respect for others and nature, loving kindness and compassion.  Planting these seeds at an early age can reduce stress as well as sustain and nourish the mind, body and spirit for a lifetime. 


Classes include lessons on basic Buddhist teachings, short meditations, movement exercises and hands on activities geared towards developing mindfulness. 

 

Parents attend the classes with their children.

Middle School Mindfulness Class is for children currently in grades 6-8. (Parents attend the Family Class, which is where everyone - including middle schoolers - begin the session.  This is not a drop-off class.  A guardian or parent must be present.)

Classes will be held on the third Sunday of each month from 3:30 - 4:30PM.   

The Middle School Meditation class offers short meditations, movement, hands-on activities, and discussion.

This middle school mindfulness class explores practices for fostering greater balance, compassion, and awareness in the midst of the natural highs and lows of early adolescence.  The mindfulness toolkit provides the foundation of the class. Investigating the fabric of our inner lives, the causes of emotional stress, and the possibility of freedom from suffering are explored within the spirit of play and curiosity.

UUs Kat Braeman and Gladys Henrikson plan to showcase their book, Carol Burris and the Women’s Lobby, in the Center on Sunday, June 30th, from 4 to 6 PM. Both admired the dynamic efforts of Carol Burris in the 1970s to give a voice to women’s concerns on Capitol Hill and around the country. Kat was a “grass root” in Nebraska in 1971 when she met and was inspired by Carol’s fierce advocacy. Gladys lobbied with Carol on a part-time hours bill and other issues. Today they remember her transforming impact on the nation and on their lives. This new book is now available on Amazon. Join this celebration of advocacy and lift a glass of champagne for these catalysts for change.

Kat is a past Board Chair of UUCA and is now on the Board of UU Marin in California. Gladys is active in the Fairfax UU church. Questions call Ronnie Priddy at 703-578-7607 or priddyveronica@gmail.com. Kat is at 202-549-3696 or katbraeman@gmail.com.
