Lifelong Learning is East Shore’s department for promoting and providing faith formation and educational learning opportunities throughout the lifespan. We provide children, youth, young adults, and adults consistent and continual opportunities to explore, reflect, and learn in a nurturing spiritual community. We do so by offering regular enrichment opportunities and involving ourselves in the worship and service of the East Shore community.
Our Unitarian Universalist religious education programs offer inspiring:
Ethical growth – internalizing enduring values like justice, equity, and compassion, and gaining tools to act on them in everyday life.
Social growth – connecting with peers and people of all ages on a deeper level. Finding acceptance among people beyond the superficial.
Spiritual growth – feeling a connection with the sacred within, among, and beyond us.
Staff for the Lifelong Learning Department:
Aisha Hauser, Director of Lifelong Learning, for adult programs, children and youth RE, and for support for families.
Amanda Uluhan, RE Programs Coordinator for children and youth programs, and how to get involved volunteering or teaching.
We also employ part-time support for Sunday morning.
Lifelong Learning is also supported by two wonderful, congregant led committees. Committees at church provide a opportunity to enrich church life by encouraging active participation from congregants and a space to pursue invaluable conversations, develop skills, and build community. Lifelong Learning committees help to implement, envision, and assess our programs for Children & Youth, and Adults.
- The Lifespan Integration Team focuses on supporting the Sunday Children & Youth RE Programs and collaboration between staff, board, committees, parents, families, and membership.
- The Adult Program Committee focuses on outreach to congregants for adult class offerings.
Please contact Director of Lifelong Learning, Aisha Hauser, for more information about how to be involved in this fulfilling committee work.
