Lifespan Spiritual Exploration (LSE)–Adult Programming
The Unitarian Church of Montpelier has a history of providing opportunities for personal growth, learning and faith development across the generations. In addition to programing for children and youth evening programs, workshops, study groups, discussion circles and other events for adults contribute to spiritual growth, lifelong religious learning and an understanding of the world in which we live.
