This Sunday at UUFA: Love & Embroidery

UUFA SERVICE THIS SUNDAY February 16, 2020. “Love, Part Two.” When is loving our enemies the answer? When is it not the answer? When does loving yourself, protecting yourself, and disagreeing with others preclude loving them? In this talk, we’ll listen to original sources and then discuss each one as a group. Please feel free to join us for coffee and community at 10:30.  Coffee 10:30am, Service 11:00am. 184 Longview Heights Road, Athens, Ohio 45701  

CHILDREN THIS SUNDAY: EMBROIDERY! This Sunday, February 16th, the children will try embroidering a chalice on fabric. All will choose fabric, draw a chalice on the fabric, stretch the fabric on an embroidery hoop, choose colored thread, thread an embroidery needle, and learn a couple basic embroidery stitches. Adults welcome to join us anytime!

SUPPORT THE GATHERING PLACE  The Gathering Place (for those who aren’t familiar with this essential local service) is a peer recovery support organization for those in the Athens area who live with mental illness or a co-occuring mental health and substance use disorder. During the month of February, the Gathering Place is collecting personal care items for people transitioning from a hospital or rehab setting back into the community. Please collect items such as shampoo & conditioner, toothbrushes (singles preferred, not multipacks,) soap/body wash, lotion, etc. and place them in the box near the door of the Fellowship. Travel sizes are welcome too! Questions about this drive? Please contact
Small Numbers, Infinite Possibilities” Webinar Series.  Please join members of our UUFA board and others across the country for the February session of the “Small Numbers, Infinite Possibilities” webinar series! Wednesday, February 12, 2020 at 7 pm Eastern OR 7 pm Pacific times.
Many people love smaller congregations–like our Fellowship–because they like knowing everyone and being known. How can our congregations build on that strength? February’s topic is Being Beloved Community.
