ARE Programs and WUC Events

An Adult Religious Education (ARE) Program is a program that is primarily educational, spiritual or both.  Events include all other church bookings.  Although Programs and Events can overlap in this definition, Religious Education Programs involve the dissemination of any educational information and are led in an educational format.  i.e. group meeting, classroom, round table discussion, book presentation or movies with discussion.  Events are social gatherings that promote church community or raise funds for the church. 

How to book your Adult Religious Education (ARE) Programs or Events: 

ARE Programs: Submit your request for ARE Programs to the ARE Committee on the ARE Program Proposal Form.  The Office Administrator will book the date on the church calendar.  The program will be reviewed at the next ARE meeting.  More urgent request will be submitted directly to the Minister for approval.  If the program does not overlap other programs and is appropriate in meeting Westminster UU’s Mission, the calendar date will remain and no further communication with the Office Administrator is necessary.  If not, either an ARE member or the Minister will inform the Office Administrator of any calendar change.  

WUC Events: Submit your request for Events to the Program Council Chair on the Event Request Form. The Office Administrator will book the date on the church calendar.  The Program Council Chair will review the Event to assure that it does not overlap other programs and is appropriate in meeting Westminster UU’s Mission.  If approved, the calendar date will remain and no further communication with the Office Administrator is necessary.  If not, the Program Council Chair will inform the Office Administrator of any calendar change.  

If questioning which form should be submitted, submit the Event Request Form.
