March 5

Ken Goodrich The 4th Principle of Unitarian Universalism is “A Free and Responsible Search for Truth and Meaning”. In a time of fake news, alternative facts, and an information-scape that seamlessly adapts, caters to, and even exploits our preconceptions, how can we be sure of our own search? Join us for a two-Sunday forum exploring and sharing best practices and insights on how to avoid becoming lost in epistemic bubbles of our own making.

Yoga at the UU –

          Tuesday Mornings at 9:30

Yoga is a universal practice to increase awareness physically, mentally and spiritually. We meet in the sanctuary.

Bring your mat and come check it out!  First class is free. $8 drop-in fee or $40 for 6 classes.  Proceeds are shared with the UU. The class is open to non-members, so pass the word!

Whether you are new to yoga or experienced, Vinyasa – All Levels is for everyone.  This 75-minute class links body movement with breath and emphasizes strengthening the core.  Pose modifications and challenges are offered to fit the participant’s experience level.  Starting slowly with warm up stretches, the music takes you to a progressively higher energy level about midway into the class and concludes with a relaxation period.  Some benefits for you are improved posture, flexibility, balance, and strength as well as calming of your mind and lessening of stress!

A chance to win $25 gift card to Trader Joe’s

The Committee on Ministry (COM) is doing a survey to clarify how members and friends of UUFP feel about how ‘things’ are going.  Is UUFP meeting a majority of the needs of its member and friends?  How does the congregation feel/think we are doing as an organization?

The survey will be emailed to those that have email accounts listed with the Fellowship.  Printed surveys and two envelopes will be available for those that do not have email.  The final date for submitting a survey will be Sunday, March 26, 2017.

The survey is anonymous.  We are using Google Forms. You do not enter your name.  Google compiles the data so we cannot see your answers and names together.   In order for us to know who has answered the survey you must email a number that is at the bottom of the form to Meg Glenn-Albiez.

We know how much people love taking surveys, so we have purchased 4 gift cards from Trader Joe’s (at the personal expense of the members of the COM).  There will be a drawing on Sunday, April 9, 2017 to pick the winners of the gift cards from those who submitted the survey.

Questions?  Concerns?  Contact a Meg Glenn-Albiez at  committeeonministry@uufp

 

pathway-membership

Thinking of taking the next step and becoming a member of the UUFP? To become a member, we encourage all to attend a new member orientation class, which are held three times a year. The next Pathway to Membership class will be held on Saturday, March 11th, from 12-4pm. During this time, we will enjoy a homemade lunch, a time to share our spiritual journeys and learn more about what it means to be a UU as well as our UUFP history, and the benefits and expectations of membership. Please contact Rosalee at membership@uufp.org if you are interested in attending.

Saturday, March 11, 12pm – 4pm
