So much has changed; so much is changing still, all around us. All are welcome to FUUSB’s first in-person worship service in more than a year! We’ll share questions, stories, reflection and music together OUTSIDE the Meeting House. There will be chairs, but feel free to bring your own portable chair, or a blanket if you’d like to sit on the ground. Choose distancing that makes you comfortable and wear a mask if you prefer. It will be good to be together!
Live-streamed services begin weekly on August 15. Check the eNews for more information.
Bring the Children - Sunday, July 25
Margo Whitcomb, Faith Development Assistant
It will be wonderful to gather outdoors this coming Sunday. We will be sure to have some quiet diversions for children during the service such as fidgets, bubbles, coloring, and sidewalk chalk, should they become restless. Please bring the whole family as we re-enter the next phase of coming together. As an added bonus, please enjoy our storypath on the grounds if you arrive early or remain after.
Ann Livingston Memorial Service
A memorial service for longtime FUUSB member Ann Livingston will be held on Saturday, August 28 at 2 pm. at the First UU Society of Burlington.

Save the Date: VIA COVID-19 Memorial
To honor Vermonters lost to COVID-19 and to process our grief, Vermont Interfaith Action is hosting a memorial service on the Vermont Statehouse Lawn in Montpelier at 3 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 19. Please save the date. The heart of the event will be a ceremonial reading of the names so that each individual who has died of COVID-19 is recognized. In addition, clergy will offer brief interfaith prayers and readings. Governor Phil Scott and Health Commissioner Dr. Mark Levine have also been invited to participate. For more information, contact Debbie at email@example.com or 802-651-8889.
