Adult Enrichment—Ongoing Events & Groups
We are members and friends of AUUC who get together informally for conversation and enlightenment. There are no dues, no sign-ups and attendance is not recorded. We meet on the 2nd and 4th Mondays from 11:15 to 1:00 p.m. in the gallery of the church. Come for all or part of the time. No reservations are required. Bring a bag lunch; dessert and drinks are provided. We socialize over lunch, which includes the sharing of joys, concerns, and church news. From noon until 1:00 p.m. we talk about a topic that has been selected by one of the members. The leader for the day presents 10-20 minutes of information on the topic and then guides the ensuing discussion. Everyone helps to set up, clean up, and we take turns in providing dessert.
Women’s Book Discussion Group
If you are a woman who likes to read a wide range of books, join this friendly group for some lively conversation and fellowship. These afternoon meetings, generally the third Tuesday of the month (except in December) at 1 p.m., are in members’ homes or at local libraries. Watch the newsletter, order of service announcements, or website for the complete reading list and location.
Friday Night Films
Join us on the third Friday of most months for films that encourage us to examine theological and ethical issues in our world. Doors open at 7 p.m.; film begins at 7:30 p.m.; a discussion follows the film. Bring your dinner if you like; most movies are appropriate for teens and adults. Check the newsletter for upcoming films. This is a nonreligious event open to the public. More Information and upcoming films
Caring Carders of AUUC
Come join us as we socialize, drink hot tea or a cold beverage, and write cards to members and friends of our community in response to Joys and Concerns. Everyone welcome! The group has been meeting about every three weeks at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesdays at a member’s home in Springfield.
Join the AUUC Choir at weekly rehearsals most Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. at AUUC. Singing at rehearsals, at Sunday Worship Services, and for special occasions is a unique way to contribute to our faith community. Come lend your voice and your spirit to create beauty and inspiration in our worship services.
Accotink’s garden serves as a transition from the mundane world into sacred space. It’s an expression of the UU Seventh Principle: “Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.” Our garden is a wildlife habitat, as certified by the National Wildlife Federation and we are always in need of help to maintain this beautiful space.
Are you a poetry lover or are you interested in becoming a poetry lover? AUUC has recently started a poetry club. Join us to read, enjoy, and learn what the poems are saying. You might want to share your own poetry too. This group is open to anyone with an interest in reading and understanding poetry. We meet once a month on the 2nd Wednesday in the evenings.
