In September we reflected on what it means to be a “People of Promise” and enjoyed a special outdoor water communion service with Rev. Laura Bogle, a time of reflection on the Jewish new year with Nancy Locklin-Sofer, and a multimedia presentation of highlights from the UUA General Assembly presented by David Ensley and Anne Scott. As we turn toward our October worship theme of Renewal, there is much going on at FUUF to renew our spirits! Rev. Laura Bogle will lead our Oct. 4 service with a sermon entitled “A People of Renewal,” then we will continue our learning as we hear from the familiar voices of Rev. Chris Buice and Jon Coffee. In addition to worship services, there are a number of opportunities for faith development and service/leadership this month.
- 9:30 am – Coffee with the Board
- 10:00 am – WORSHIP: “A People of Renewal” (Rev. Laura Bogle) --In this on-demand world where everything seems to be instantly available, insistently crowding our vision, our time, our Facebook feeds and our inbox, what happens to our relationships with self, family and community?What practices help us to renew our own spirit, refresh our friendships, and give new energy to our commitments?
- We will welcome new members during the worship service. If you are interested in joining in membership, please contact membership chair Christy Walsh at firstname.lastname@example.org or (865) 379-7904.
- 11:00 am –Potluck– The teens have been asked to provide the food for our monthly luncheon after the service on October 4th. Ash McDaniel says, “As most of you know, although mighty in spirit, we are few in numbers, so I am reaching out to all of you for help in this endeavor because, quite frankly, if others don't contribute, I suspect our repast will be mighty meager. The luncheon theme that day is Salads, Sandwiches, and Something Delicious for Dessert. So please, bring something to share, help us set up or clean up after, or be a real pal and help with the whole shebang. On behalf of the Teen Group, I thank you in advance!”
- 11:00 am – BRIEF Tech Training -- Jennifer Spirko will give a VERY BRIEF tutorial on how to set up the FUUF sound system so we have lots of trained, knowledgeable folks to help on an as needed basis over time. ALL ARE WELCOME!
