Please join us for our annual all-congregation retreat – 8:00 hot breakfast followed by the hybrid meeting at 9:00. We will begin with a brief business meeting regarding the UUFCM bylaw changes that have been emailed to everyone. The topic of the retreat itself will be the draft revision to Article II of the UUA Bylaws, which include the 7 Principles. The revision report was published this week and can be read here. The link for you Zoomers to the retreat is on the UUFCM Calendar.
The Worship Team meets regularly to plan services with the purpose of providing high-quality inspiring worship services every Sunday. We are asking for feedback from the congregation on what you love in our worship, what is missing in our worship, and any improvements you might suggest.
We invite you to give us this feedback in one of four ways:
Norma Bailey, Rev. Drew Frantz, Minister, Jessica Jernigan,
Laura McBride, Jakobe Neal (Director of Religious Education),
and Annette Pratt
This orientation is geared to newcomers, visitors, and those seeking to learn more about Unitarian Universalism and this UU fellowship. It is offered every month both in person in the fellowship hall and via Zoom, typically on the last Sunday at 12:30 pm. Sessions run approximately an hour and a half.
If you are interested in watching an introductory video regarding our faith, please view this YouTube video by Peter Bowden called Unitarian Universalism: You're Uni-What?.
