Looking Back, Looking Forward

Sunday Service –  Dec. 31, 2017 – 10:00 am

January approaches. It’s a month named after the Roman god Janus, who is depicted with two faces, one looking forward and one looking back. In service, we’ll form a circle and create a ritual honoring that from the past we wish to let go of, and set our intentions for how we want to be in the coming year. Bring symbols of your journey to decorate the center space.

~ Rev. Paula Maiorano


Labyrinth Training Session

After Sunday Service –  Dec. 31, 2017 – 11:30 am

The UUFN LabyrinthThe Labyrinth Committee would like help with our walks and perhaps you would like to know more about setting up our UUFN Labyrinth and how to help with hosting the walks?  Karen Barker will give offer a brief workshop on Sunday Dec. 31 at 11:30a.m. in which you will learn where our labyrinth is kept, what our traditions are, how we set up the room, how to ‘warm’ the labyrinth, to greet visitors, and the secrets of folding that huge canvas up so that it will fit it back into the container where it resides. If this is something that you would like to know more about, please contact Karen Barker at to sign up for the workshop.


Last Brunch Bunch Event for 2017

After Sunday Service – Dec. 31, 2017 – 11:30 am

It’s Sunday after service and Coffee Hour is winding down.  You’re not ready to just go home.  Wouldn’t it be nice to find others to go out to Brunch/Lunch with?  That’s the idea behind the Sunday Brunch Bunch!  It’s really simple.  Look for the Sunday Brunch Bunch poster in Fahs Hall…and sign up—right there during Coffee Hour.  

Then, at about 11:30 go back to the poster and see who else is going to join you! Where will you go? Come to a consensus with the group!


New Year’s Eve Labyrinth Walk

New Year’s Eve – Dec. 31, 2017 – 8:00 pm

Enjoy a lovely candle-lit labyrinth walk from 8 to 10 PM on New Year’s Eve in MacKinnon Hall.  It is an exceptional way to contemplate the year that is past and imagine the year that is yet to be. You can be sure of a peaceful, relaxing, totally enjoyable walk.  Everyone is invited to bring some holiday treats to share, and afterward, join your friends in the Olympia  Brown Lounge for goodies and conversation.



Native American Super Moon Ceremony

New Years Day – Jan.1, 2018 – 3:30 pm

On Jan 1st there is a Super Moon. This is when the moon is closest to the earth for 2018. The moon will appear to be very large. This will be the largest it looks to the naked eye in 2018. Rebecca Trversky and Nancy Plummer will mark this occasion with a Native American ceremony. There will be a potluck supper following the ceremony. Please bring a dish to share. Also dress warmly! We will be outside! CLICK FOR MORE INFORMATION.


A Note from the Religious Education Dept:

There will be no regular RE Classes on the last two Sundays of the month, Christmas Eve Day and New Year’s Eve Day.

Instead, all the RE Children will gather in Fahs Hall to celebrate Kwanzaa. There will be songs, dance, crafts, food and more as we learn about this African American holiday which runs from December 26 – Jan 1.
