Connect Up Activities

Are you looking for ways to meet with other UUs and build community? Then Connect Up is a great resource for you!

Connect Up events provide a way to get to know each other in smaller group settings. Events can range from book clubs and game nights to bird watching, wine tasting and local hikes — just to name a few. Everyone is welcome to participate and everyone is encouraged to host an event.
