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

Activities with an asterisk (*) are on hold until we can safely resume them with respect to Covid. 

Coffee and Conversation Following Services

Everyone is encouraged to stay following our Sunday services to enjoy conversation outdoors. (We hope to return to coffee and conversation in Elarth Hall post-Covid). We enjoy meeting our visitors and finding out more about you. We also enjoy catching up with friends.

*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 (September – May) social gathering of 6-10 people in a group member’s home to share a potluck meal and stimulating conversation. 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 Kim with questions or for more information. If your home isn’t big enough to accommodate the group, simply reserve Elarth Hall at UUC. 

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
