Welcome back to Soulful Exploration at WUUC. We have an exciting and focused year of learning and service planned for you and your family. There are many new offerings for children, youth, and adults. This year we are hoping to focus more squarely on the development of our identity as a justice-seeking congregation. Along with Soulful opportunities, you may find more ways to connect and engage through ASJ, our justice organizing committee. Check out the WUUC monthly newsletter for more details.

Keep reading to sign up for Fall programming. You may also sign up and see new offerings on our website. As always, please stay in touch about your faith development needs, constructive feedback, and encouragement. You may email me at dll@wuuc.org.

 

Warmly and Fondly,

 

Rev. Jae
