Sunday, 5/24, 10am - Adult RE 10am Discussion Group (via Zoom!)
Topic this Sunday: "Patriotism and Nationalism." While these words were once considered synonyms, they have taken on different connotations. While both are the feelings of love people feel for their country, the values upon which those feelings are based are very different. Check out the article below and join us to discuss!

UUFF Cares Update
Steve Wilkes has been experiencing health challenges for several weeks. He was hospitalized for a time of intensive care when it was finally discovered that he had several life-threatening pulmonary embolisms. Steve has been resting and slowly recuperating at home, under Gretchen's care, since being released from the hospital. Please keep Steve and Gretchen in your thoughts, and check in with them (call/text) when you can. Cards can be mailed to: Steve Wilkes / P.O. Box 3054 / Fayetteville, AR, 72702

Please keep Joyce Mendenhall and Nancy McShane in your thoughts and hearts as they both continue to receive cancer treatments. Cards and notes of encouragement and support are always welcomed.

UUFF's COVID-19 Closure: The health and safety of you, our fellowship members and friends is top priority, which is why UUFF is keeping services, meetings, etc. "remote" for the time being. We will continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 situation, and in the meantime keep working to make remote services as beneficial and easy to access as possible. Please bear with us as we all learn together, and please also provide any feedback that might help us improve in serving you during this challenging time. Remember also that Pastoral Care is available, and we would love to hear from you! If you or anyone you know within the fellowship is in need, whether it be financial or otherwise, please let Rev. Jim, Fawn, or another member of leadership with whom you are comfortable know. Let us continue to take care of one another. Love and Light to all!

A reminder that area blood banks are at a very low level of supply (one day's worth). If you are willing and able, please donate. You could save a life!
