Many fun and exciting events are planned throughout the year! Check our online calendar for upcoming fun activities!

Coffee and Conversation Following Services

Everyone is encouraged to stay following our Sunday services to enjoy coffee and conversation in Elarth Hall. We enjoy meeting our visitors and finding out more about you. We also enjoy catching up with friends.

Aging as a Spiritual Journey

The “Sages” meet every first and third Tuesday at 2:00 p.m. for a lively discussion on topics of interest to older adults (that means everything in the universe). Any adult of any age is welcome to join.

Second Sunday Potluck Meal

On the second Sunday of the month, the congregation gathers for a potluck lunch following the worship service. These are comfortable, informal occasions where all are welcome. Bring a dish to share and meet some new friends! Didn’t bring a dish, no problem, there is always plenty of food for all. 

Circle Suppers

Circle Suppers are a monthly social gathering of 6-10 people in a group member’s home to share a potluck meal. Stay with the same group for a year. It’s a great way to get to know others! If interested in participating, fill out the online form. Contact administrator@uucnrv.org with questions or for more information. If your home isn’t big enough to accommodate the group, simply reserve Elarth Hall at UUC. 

Newcomer Potluck

Three times a year, we hold a newcomer’s potluck at the congregation. This is a great opportunity to get to know other folks who are new to the congregation. Potlucks are usually held on a Saturday evening from 5:30-8:30. After a brief welcome and introductions, enjoy good food and fellowship.

Annual Service Auction

Each Fall we hold an exciting auction to both raise money to help support our budget and to provide an evening of fun and excitement for adults and children. The auction is our biggest social event of the year. At the auction, you can bid on fabulous dinners and events and continue having fun times with other congregants throughout the year. Learn more
