Becoming Beloved Community!
Wednesday Evening Fellowship, Community, & Learning with Childcare & a Meal
Once we gather on campus again, we’ve got your Wednesday evenings covered. Come for a community family potluck dinner at 6:30 p.m., and stay for a class, a sharing circle, or a time to create with one another in fellowship beginning at 7:00 p.m.
Beloved Community Wednesdays will gather in the UUFP sanctuary building at 13136 Warwick Blvd., Newport News.
Childcare with activities provided — all ages welcome! If your child is new to us, please fill out the Religious Education Registration form. We have the form linked here and will also have some forms on hand for you on Wednesdays.
Our Community Potluck Meal: 6:30 – 7:00 p.m.
Onsite meal temporarily suspended.
Once onsite activities resume, if you can bring a dish to share, and/or assist with set-up between 6:00 and 6:30, fantastic! Otherwise just come as you are Wednesday evenings and enjoy our community meal.
Wednesday Evening Events During COVID
"Reflect Back" Discussion Group: 7:00 – 8:30 p.m.
An ongoing Wednesday program reflecting back on the message of the previous Sunday services.
Unitarian Universalism has a long tradition of encouraging individuals to rely on their own experience and discernment. Many congregations would provide time during the Sunday worship service itself, after the minister’s sermon, for members to “talk back” to the pulpit. While the tradition has fallen out of favor in most larger congregations, there remains a strong impulse to apprehend, reflect, criticize, deconstruct, reconstruct, and internalize a message, making it one’s own — and strengthening our bonds of fellowship in the process.
Join us, then, for reflection. If you missed the Sunday service, this might be a good way to catch up!
(New facilitators always welcomed! No special knowledge or preparation required.)
