Welcome to the
Unitarian Universalist Fellowship
We are a small, friendly, member-led church with a part time minister, the Rev. Craig M. Nowak. As a Welcoming Congregation of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA), we pride ourselves on the warmth and inclusiveness of our community, the quality of our worship services, and opportunities we provide for spiritual growth and service to others.
OUR HISTORY IN BRIEF
The fellowship was founded in 1957 as a lay fellowship at the home of Charles & Marjorie Lee to meet the needs of individuals seeking a community of spiritual acceptance. In the 1960s, we built and dedicated our meetinghouse on Spring Hill Road in Storrs. Today, UUFS serves the Greater Windham area, with members from Storrs, Windham, Willimantic, Mansfield, Coventry, Lebanon, Stafford Springs and other local towns.
WHAT WE DO
Summer Sundays and Meetings 2017
During July and August we will gather every other week for Sunday services. There will also be an evening discussion group on the UUA Common Read: The Third Reconstruction, How a Moral Movement is Overcoming the Politics of Division and Fear by The Reverend Dr. William J. Barber II with Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove. Please click on our calendar or Facebook page for summer service dates, topics and activities.
Sunday Worship: During the church year (The Sunday after Labor Day through June) regular worship services are held on Sunday mornings and are followed by a social hour. Each month, we designate a service as “Service Sunday,” an intergenerational opportunity to put our principles into practice in a project or activity to create justice together. During the summer our services are held every other week.
When: Sundays, 10:30am
– Child care is available during Sunday services-
Vespers – Once a month we have an evening worship service led by Rev. Craig Nowak. These informal 30-45 minute services explore a theme through readings, a short homily, meditation, or music, and the sharing of our aspirations.
When: 1st Wednesday of each month Sept/Oct- June
Pot-luck Supper: 6:00 pm; Service: 7:00 pm
Food and Faith – Our adult enrichment/development program is designed to foster reflection and spiritual growth. Topics and formats vary. Recent programs have included “Behind the Kitchen Door”, an examination and reflection on social justice and the food service industry; “Living a Life That Matters”, a book and discussion group based on the book of the same name by Rabbi Harold Kushner; and Small Group Ministry, a reflection and discussion group exploring the realities of life including asking for help; starting anew, money, acceptance, our gifts, etc. Each session is preceded by a pot-luck supper.
