"To Walk Together: Mission Sunday"
with the Gathered UUFC Community

Our UUFC mission statement arose from between us, as our mission and work are shared among us all. This Sunday we'll take time to lift up some of the work we're doing, recognizing that all areas of our mission - Explore. Love. Act. - are interconnected and that we can each do our parts toward the aim of an inclusive religious community that betters the world.


When we gather together, we each bring all that we are -- and together, we form a community that can hold all that comes to us.
Announcements
Members of the Fellowship Care & Support Team (FCST) are meeting with people in the Fellowship as listening companions.
