“Human Race” Conversation

Sunday, April 7 at 12:00pm in UL302
“Race” is a difficult topic, often avoided for fear of saying something wrong—something stupid—or of offending someone.  It’s increasingly important to face the reality of where we are as a society, and to do something concrete about it.  And maybe that starts with focused conversation that leads to action.

Copies of the book “How to Be Less Stupid About Race” by Crystal Fleming will be available for $16.00 at the Fellowship beginning this Sunday.

We’re all part of one race, the human one.  Let’s keep talking.

RSVP to Constance.L.Grant@gmail.com by March 31.  A light lunch will be provided.

The Parents’ Circle is made up of families with children through 12th grade, gathering together for discussions, activities, potlucks, and more.  We also have a private Facebook group for safe sharing.

Join us the second Sunday of the month. In March the topic will be “Overscheduled kids” and we’ll meet before service.

UU Family Camp & Retreat

Registration for Chalice Sparx Family Camp & Retreat Now Open

Registration for Chalice Sparx Family Camp & Retreat is now open. Join us July 11-14 in Sturgis, Michigan for an amazing all ages experience at lovely Amigo Centre in Sturgis, Michigan.

At Chalice Sparx camp and retreat for families you will experience a truly multigenerational community. There are no camp counselors here to whisk away the children separate from their families. Here we learn together, worship together and explore together in a community of all ages – including elders who complete our multigenerational village.

We also have fun together. Swimming, hiking the trails and the labyrinth, canoeing, archery, popcorn popped in a kettle over an open fire, and of course, S’mores and singing camp songs.
