Building the Oshkosh Community
Fellowship Dinners September Through May
B’nai Israel Congregation Social Hall – 1121 Algoma Blvd.
2017-2018 Program: Learning from Neighboring Faiths
The Oshkosh Satellite Congregation of the Fox Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship invites you to participate in its Wellspring Wednesday Program. Every month, a local resident from a different faith tradition will give a talk about their traditions and beliefs and the role these play in their lives, followed by a discussion with the audience, facilitated by Dr. Michael Baltutis, Associate Professor of Religious Studies at UW-Oshkosh and Dr. David Hegedus, Fellowship Satellite Wellspring Programming Leader.
NEW THIS YEAR – Children who attend Wellspring will experience age appropriate educational experiences that mirror adult programming content in a one room schoolhouse format. The program will be geared for younger children, with older children being able to offer their assistance in the classroom. We are hoping this will be a great learning experience for all!

The Fellowship has over 70 members and friends who live in the Oshkosh area! Over the years, members have expressed an interest in getting together in Oshkosh and to eventually offer a service in Oshkosh. This process started in the spring of 2009, but we realize that it will take some time to fulfill our vision of one congregation at two sites. Building community is essential to success, so our first step is to offer a regular time for the Oshkosh folks to get together.
To be added to our Oshkosh e-mail list, please contact the Fellowship secretary at email@example.com or by calling 920-731-0849.
