Adult Religious Education
Adult Religious Education (ARE) nurtures the lifelong development of the whole person—body, mind, heart, and spirit—through broad and flexible opportunities for study, exploration, reflection, and spiritual practice. ARE also nurtures the development of the whole community through courses on our relationships, our congregation, our faith movement, and living our values in the wider world.

A.R.E. Mission Statement
The Unitarian Universalist covenant commits us to encourage each other in spiritual growth and to promote a free and responsible search for truth and meaning. The Adult Religious Education Committee of First UU Nashville exists to fulfill that part of our covenant.
We are powerful when we are educated. The ARE committee of First UU Nashville will offer classes and discussions to promote growth in body, mind, and spirit. These will be in harmony with UU principles and will encourage a safe exchange of ideas. Our goal is for the members of our congregation to be better as individuals and more committed to living our faith and improving the world.
It is also the task of the ARE committee to promote the growth of First UU Nashville in particular and the UU religion in general. To this end, the committee will welcome anyone from outside our congregation who wishes to participate in our goals and will maintain contacts with sympathetic organizations in the community.
