At BUF, we believe that there is always room for exploring, questioning and learning. Our lifelong learning programs for adults include our Sunday Forums, and have included study groups on the Bhagavad-Gita, the Bible, and theology as well as many other opportunities to challenge perceptions and expand knowledge bases. Opportunities for spiritual growth in Chalice Circles are a part of our Small Group Ministry.

Sunday Forums

Our Sunday Forums begin at 9:15 a.m. and end in time for the Sunday Worship Service. Due to other adult programming, Forums are currently suspended and will resume in March 2020. Here is a link to the schedule of topics by date, archives of past forums, and more information regarding our Sunday Forum program.

The Apostle Paul Was Not A Christian!

Sundays, beginning October 6, from 4:00-6:00 pm, in the Conference Room with Rev. Bill Haney. Paul of Tarsus, along with Jesus of Nazareth, was claimed by the Christian Church as theirs by the second century, putting a spin on each one. They were Jews devoted to the tradition of that time. Join in the attempt to discover who Paul of Tarsus was and what his ministry was about. We will meet through November 10, six consecutive session.
