Young Adult Unitarian Universalist Group Starting

We are starting a Young Adult UU small group, with the goal of meeting for the first time in February on the UWL campus.

Join the UU Guilt-Free Craft Group

The UU Guilt-Free Craft Group is in the planning stages. We will meet regularly to knit, crochet, sew, bead, chat, snarf cookies, and whatever else we call “crafting.” Sewing machines and comparatively quiet electrical tools are welcome. Band saws might be a problem. As usual, no guilt, no pressure. Everyone welcome.  If you’re interested in joining search for our Facebook group: UU Guilt-Free Craft Group.

 

Uncapped Conversations: Surrendering into Hope

Once a month we gather together just to talk about the theme of the month and how it applies to our lives. We meet at
6:30, make our orders and start the conversation around 6:45. There is a focusing reading and some guided questions to help us stay on track, but it’s our lives and our stories that make this a wonderful evening of sharing and connection. All are welcome. Tuesday, February 12, 6:30 pm at Java Vino.
