“BUILDING COMMUNITY”

Congregational experts have done their research and discovered that building community requires the foundation of small groups who share a common interest, task, experience.  Amy Brooks, UU Community Minister, will be joining us to introduce the UU program called “Evensong” a small group opportunity she will be offering on Sunday nights for our fellowship beginning the evening of October 18th  from 7-9 pm.  Please join us to learn more about how we can grow together in community and to meet Amy.
