UUMAN Garden FriendsAmong the avenues for members to connect with each other at UUMAN are a number of groups based on similar identity or interest. They can provide intellectual stimulation, the acquisition of new skills, fellowship, and fun. We invite our members to build personal connections and lifetime knowledge through our activities.

Anyone with an interest in forming such a group is welcome to contact Dave Hudson, chair, Adult Enrichment Committee adultenrichment@uuman.org.

In addition to Community/Fellowship, there are many other enriching offerings for members of the church, including Contemplative Practice, Adult Religious Explorations, Small Group Ministry, and Music/Art/Culture.



Daytimers provides an unrestricted forum for the free discussion of topics of every nature — social, political, religious, and others, irrespective of prevailing societal views and opinions.

Lunch Ministry


The purpose of this ministry is to enjoy each other’s company each week outside of church services, and to get to know visitors and newcomers so they can get a flavor of the type of people we are.

Game Night

We aren’t talking football here! We meet once a month, sometimes on a Saturday afternoon, sometimes on a Friday evening to play interesting, creative, sometimes cooperative board games, at the Nagrani Home in Roswell. Feel free to bring food to share and/or friends who may enjoy playing with us. Stay tuned for announcements.

Joy of Movement (JAM)

Come enjoy moving to great music. This is a semi-structured class that allows you to tune into your body and explore moving in a way that feels good to you. You’ll get the benefits of exercise without noticing that you’ve been working out as you move gently and with ease. You’ll also get the benefits of taking time for yourself, breathing deeply, and letting go of any worry or stress. Currently inactive.
