The process of becoming an elder comes with both blessings and challenges. UU San Mateo’s Aging-to-Saging groups provide an opportunity to explore both in safe and intimate small-group settings. Each of our three Aging-to-Saging groups has a slightly unique character based on the needs and interests of its participants. Although there is no specific age limit, most of the participants in these groups have reached at least the half-century mark.

Aging to Saging (Co-Ed)

Meets: every other Tuesday afternoon, 1-3:30 p.m., Hemingway Lounge

We are a group of older women and men who meet every two weeks to discuss a wide variety of subjects selected by participants, such as personal histories, current events, books/movies, or issues of concern. We are also famous for our “snack break,” where in rotation we offer our fellows some goodies with tea. We have been meeting since 2000.

For information, contact this group’s coordinators.

Women’s Aging-to-Saging Group 1

Women’s Aging-to-Saging Group 2

Meets: 1st and 3rd Thursdays, 1-2:30 p.m., Hemingway Lounge

This group starts each session with a chalice lighting and check-in, after which we discuss a topic selected by the session leader. The topic may focus on some aspect of the month’s congregational theme, or something else likely to be of interest to participants. We rotate responsibility for session leadership, on a voluntary basis.
