Young Families Spring 2018 Events and Updates

Here’s what to expect from Young Families this spring and through the end of the church year. Please share these events with other young families who are new (or not) to UUCDC. We want to be welcoming and give people ways to connect outside of Sunday mornings. Our group events are geared towards families with children ages 10 and under, but all are invited!

Please mark your calendar and plan to join us for the following events:

Pastries on the Playground on the following Sundays at 10:45am; March 4, April 8, and May 6: Join Young Families on the playground after the 9:30 a.m. service for fun and fellowship. Please bring a sweet treat to share if you are able. Members and friends of all ages are welcome!

Young Families Picnic; Saturday, May 19, 4:30-6:30: Join us to wrap up the church year and welcome summer with a potluck picnic and outdoor play at the church. Please bring a main dish or appetizer; drinks and dessert will be provided. Please also bring any outdoor games or activities. We look forward to seeing you for our last gathering before summer arrives!

Soul Matters: A Small Group Ministry for Young Families; monthly on second Sunday, 4:00-6:00: Join other Young Families members to discuss a spiritual topic each month with our trained facilitators. Childcare is provided, and the group holds a family potluck each quarter immediately following that month’s meeting.

Seeking New Co-Chairs to Start September 2018: Our current co-chairs will be completing their terms in August, and we are looking for new leadership starting in September. If you would be interested in helping to keep this group going for current and future young families, please contact us at to learn more.
