Fellowship

We are a community that is very enthusiastic about engaging in and promoting fellowship with one another, in a variety of settings. Throughout the year, we have many opportunities to “fun-raise” while we fund-raise, including the Silent Auction and Celebration Sunday, and heart-warming and inspirational evening programs like our Annual Christmas Party, Illuminations, and Cabaret. Additional events include Spaghetti Dinners with music, wine and fun for all ages with a small at-cost donation.

The “UU LA/Valley Cluster Camp” is held annually in October at our UU Camp DeBenneville Pines. This is an opportunity to spend an amazing weekend in the San Bernadino Mountains enjoying fellowship with UUs from our neighboring congregations.

The Choir welcomes everyone who loves to sing. We are an enthusiastic group of people who are passionate about making great music. Between September and June, we rehearse Sunday mornings prior to services from 8:45 to 9:30 AM and Monday evenings at 7:00 PM. The ability to read music is a plus, but is not necessary. If you are interested in adding your musical talents to the worship service, or have any questions about the music program, please contact Music Director Nancy Holland at nholland22@gmail.com.

UUCSC Knitting Group meets on the first and third Wednesdays of the month from 7:00 to 8:30 PM in Room 10 (the Big Room) on the second floor. Contact Samantha Foster: samantha.e.foster@gmail.com
