Fellowship and Social Activities

Love is our Doctrine. Service is our prayer. Justice is our calling.

Social groups meet regularly to share life’s ups and downs, connect to each other in a deeper way than they could after a worship service on Sunday morning, and often share common crafts or interests.

Circle Suppers

Would you like to get to know more people from the VUU community? Join the Circle Suppers group and participate in monthly pot luck dinners. A purely social event, there are no requirements aside from having a good time. On the first Saturday of each month, small groups of 8 or 10 meet at a host’s house for a delicious meal with a variety of side dishes. The hosts and attendees are always changing, so each month you will get to meet and visit with new people. Participants are not required to host and most dietary restrictions can be accommodated. Singles, couples, and families are welcome, and you don’t need to be a VUU member to participate.

Connection Circles

Connection Circles are small groups of 6-10 people who meet twice monthly via Zoom to share a deeper connection with other Friends and Members of the congregation for 60-90 minutes. These groups are always open to new members, and we WOULD LOVE to have you join us! Approximately thirteen different meeting days and times are available, so we can find something that works for you.
