Fireside Chat

FUSW Fireside Chat, Saturday, January 30, 4:00pm (link to come)
The FUSW Board invites you to a virtual "Fireside Chat" where we can hear each other's thoughts on our pandemic-era services and activities, plus ideas for the remainder of the year. The Board will also share a few brief updates. Please mark your calendar and watch for login information and agenda closer to the date.
Congregation Survey

To prepare for the January 30 "Fireside Chat," we have created a survey to gather information and take the pulse of the congregation. It should take no more than 5 minutes of your time, so please fill out this important survey. You may remain anonymous or share your name in the comments - your choice. Either way, we need your input! Questions? Contact Rina (admin@fusw.org). Click here to open the survey.
A Second Look

On December 27, Rev. Molly Brewer led our service “Hindsight is 2020.” If you missed it, or would like to watch it again, you can find a link to the worship here.
FUSW Book Group

The FUSW book group is currently reading Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid, which The Guardian says is "a thrilling millennial take on the 19th-century novel of manners" and NPR calls "a page-turner with beautifully drawn characters and a riveting plot." Interested in joining the discussion? Contact Denise Woodin (dcw2@optonline.net).
Worship Associates Wanted!

Worship Associates are so important to FUSW, especially now as we hold our Sunday services online. There are many ways to help, even virtually. If you are ready to step up, contact Rina (admin@fusw.org), who will connect you with an experienced “WA” to learn more.
