Involvement in the UUFC during Coronavirus and Social Distancing
While we are not gathering in-person, there are still many ways for us to stay connected and be in community together. Here’s a list to get you started:
Weekly Events and Offerings
Each weekday, a UU-Announce is sent out with a Daily Practice.
Each weekday in April, in honor of Poetry Month, we will be posting a new poem here.
Each weekday, join us on the Fellowship’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/uucorvallis/) at noon for a live Meditation.
Each Wednesday at 11:30, join us for Virtual Coffee Hour and sharing of our Joys & Sorrows. Watch UU-Announce for the weekly Zoom link.
Each Friday, a UU-Announce is sent out with the Sermon Title, Description, and a link to the Weekly Announcements.
Each weekend, a UU-Announce is sent out with the link to the Sunday sermon. We invite you to light your own Chalice and watch it on Sunday morning.
Each weekend, and mid-week, a UU-Announce is sent out with a Religious Exploration (RE) Podcast.
Wednesdays, Evening Mindfulness Practice is live on Zoom from 7:00PM – 7:30PM in April. You may join on your computer or by phone call. Join about 5 minutes before to make sure your system is connected. This week’s Zoom Meeting: https://us04web.zoom.us/j/2326020719. Meeting ID: 232 602 0719.

*Are there any additional weekly offerings that others are welcome to join? Please email Jamie at email@example.com so we can include them here and in the upcoming weekly announcements.
Members and friends of the UUFC have many reasons for being part of this religious community. Often they say they come for their children, but end up staying for themselves. Some just love to sing and quickly find their place in the choir. Others seek spiritual or personal inspiration for daily living, while still others want to add their passion to social or environmental justice causes we support. Some members are retired and may choose to spend time to become quite deeply involved in one or more of the Fellowships many activities. But, of course that is not the case with all members. We encourage your involvement to whatever extent best fits your interests and lifestyle.
So whatever drew you here in the first place, we invite you to get involved, build your own community, and become part of our “beloved community.” If you have a particular interest, talent, or passion you’d like to share, let us know. No doubt you’ll find the opportunity to engage with like-minded others in this community. Get involved and you’ll find that the old truism applies – “I get back more than I give!”
Here are a few of the myriad ways to get involved –
- Worship together on Sundays
- Raise your voice as part of our wonderful choir
- Become part of a volunteer teaching team for children or youth programs
- Break bread together at an Action Lunch, a Fellowship potluck, or a 7 at 7 Dinner
- Give of your time, talents, and financial resources to support the Fellowship
- Join a Chalice Group and get to know a small group of members and friends in a more intimate setting
- Take an Adult Religious Exploration class
- Like leadership roles? – Serve on a committee, the Program Council, or the Board of Trustees
- Become a member of the Caring Connection
- Participate in other Fellowship events during the week – this website and the UUFC Newsletter have information on various Fellowship activities. Check them out!
Below you’ll find descriptions and contact information for UUFC programs, activities, and committees you might enjoy. You can also learn more about these at a First Steps presentation here at the Fellowship every fourth Sunday of the month at 11:00 AM (10:00 AM in the summer).
