Adult Religious Exploration/Programs (A.R.E.) offers programs on contemplative, spiritual, philosophical and social issues. These courses, workshops, lectures, discussions, films and retreat days feature a wide range of speakers and facilitators with the shared aim of encouraging thoughtful reflection on the inner life.

A.R.E works collaboratively with other Live Oak Committees and area organizations to bring a variety of purposeful and stimulating programs to Live Oak and the larger community.  We encourage involvement and suggestions from Live Oak members and friends.
