Generational Change and the 20th Century Church

“Generational Change and the 20th Century Church”
   Sunday 11am EST by Zoom
January 31, 2021

While the last year has been challenging for churches all over the country, there were generational forces already contributing to declining participation in organized religion before the onset of the pandemic. We’ll explore some of those forces as well as ways congregations of all sizes can adapt to and survive the 21st century.

NEWS FROM (UUFA PRESIDENT) SUUSAN
(suusanw.uu@gmail.com ; 240-305-0860)

On Saturday, the UUFA board met for many hours to talk about the current state of the Fellowship and what the future may hold for us post-pandemic. Our conversation was full of hope and honesty. COVID has been very challenging for all of us and our families, and for our community organizations, including the Fellowship. Some tough decisions may have to be made about our finances in the coming months, but I am confident that our leadership team will always keep the best interests of the UUFA congregation in mind as these decisions are made. THANK YOU to the Board: Katie E., Andy R., Jessie R., Roberta R., Brian R., Marilyn Z., and Richard T.
 
Feel free to contact me at any time to talk about Fellowship biz or anything else!
