Connection Saturdays

Every Saturday from September through May, we offer a program at 4:30 pm. These programs are family friendly, with the 1st and 5th Saturdays being for all ages, and the other weeks including childcare for those age eight and under. There is no need to RSVP for these programs or events. Contact Marie Luna, director of congregational life, with questions at marie@fvuuf.org.

1st Saturday: Social Connection

Join us every month, starting in October for a night of homemade soup, bread and optional games. No need to sign up, just show up hungry!

There is always vegan and gluten free options available. Games might include the classics, like UNO, cards and Yahtzee, or newer games like Apples to Apples or Settlers of Catan. Bring your favorites if you want to share! There will also be a table for those who are just interested in conversation.  All are welcome to attend these nights. Those who want to bring a soup to share would be appreciated. Contact Angie and Matt Demers with questions at angiebaby826@yahoo.com and matthew_demers@yahoo.com with any questions.

There will be a special table every month for those who want to learn and/or play Dungeons and Dragons. This is a fantasy tabletop role-playing game that’s been around for more than 40 years. Play the part of a hearty warrior, a cunning rogue, a wise cleric, or a powerful sorcerer. Explore your character’s motivations, aid your fellow party members, slay monsters, and discover hidden treasures! All players are welcome. No experience required. All materials will be provided. Contact Jerry Behrendt with questions about D&D at jbehrendt@gmail.com.
