February Events

Sunday, February 1, After 1st & 2nd Services – We Believe
Be a part of the launch of a denomination-wide expression of what we, as Unitarian Universalists, believe. On Sunday, Feb. 1, after each service, stop by the church library to tell us where you experience the divine or where you find beauty. A professional videographer will be here to record our statements; the finished videos will premiere in the spring. To learn more about the We Believe project, check out Jen Hayman’s Faithify pitch from last fall. And start thinking about what you believe. Questions? Contact Director of Music and Arts Jen Hayman.
