UU at Home for Families!
Go on a scavenger hunt at home! What chalices can you find, or make from things around the house? Share photos of your chalice with us on the Story Time Thursdays Discord thread! Also let us know what you thought of today’s story, or discuss these questions:

Have you ever missed someone when they were away?
What kids of things do you like to do when you feel bored?

In lieu of in-person Sunday school, please check out these resources for Religious Exploration at home!

Community Chat Time… Tonight! 
Join Rev. Marian and Rev. Eric from 6–8pm Thursdays for Community Chat Time – online, on Zoom! This will be a time we can check in with each other, see each other’s faces, hear our voices, and feel connected. It will also be a great time to test out your Zoom skills before worship on Sunday! We will open the chat early and answer any tech questions you might have.

Thank you everyone for helping to Flatten the Curve and Heighten the Connection. Together, we can do this! Feel free to send an email to if you need assistance. The staff will monitor this email and get back to you as soon as we can.
Join Community Chat, 6–8pm Thursdays!
