The Greater Washington Area Religious Educators Council (GWAREC) is a gathering of religious educators from the Unitarian Universalist Association’s Joseph Priestley Chapter LREDA who have committed to sharing resources among UU congregations in the Metro-Baltimore-Washington, DC, area.
We will post adult education classes held at area congregations and other information on GWAREC activities. Note that this page requires all participants to be paid JPD-LREDA members.
