Upcoming Events & Announcements
UUFF's Web of Life Pagan Group

Web of Life is a Pagan group affiliated with the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Fayetteville (UUFF). We are named for the 7th principle of Unitarian Universalism: Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.

Web of Life provides a safe space that promotes a free and responsible search for personal truth and meaning, based in both science and mysticism, for Pagans and seekers within the UUFF and the wider community. Web of Life typically meets twice a month on Sunday evening, 4-6pm, at the Annex.

*Next Event: Web of Life Picnic on Sunday, May 27th, 4-7pm at Wilson Park*

Lunch Angels Program

Volunteering with Lunch Angels is a great opportunity to literally "serve" those of the community in need of a good, healthy meal...while getting to know fellow UUFF’ers!
UUFF's Lunch Angels group is assigned to provide meals (hosted at Genesis Church on MLK Jr. Blvd) one Saturday a month on varying months and consistently over the summer. Each time, we need several folks to make casseroles and several more to help serve. If you are interested in volunteering, please sign up via the link provided in the weekly email (for nearest serve date) or on the hard copy sheet on the activities table in the foyer. You can contact Gretchen Wilkes ( gwilkes@farmcards.org ) for more information or to sign up in advance.

Remaining 2018 serve dates are : May 19, June 16, July 21, August 18, October 20.
