UU 101: Back to Our Future
A 4-part series with Phillip Baber
Oct 15, 22, 29 & Nov 5, 2017
Sundays, 12:30-2:30, Anthony Room, UUCJ

We come to the Unitarian Universalist Church through many paths and faith traditions.  Yet we all come to UUCJ to “spread our wings” and explore new spiritual realms without censure.  UU 101 provides the history and context for us to understand our past as we build our future.  We will learn about our UU spiritual and ethical development; where our covenant and principles come from; and of our own beloved community in Northeast Florida. Please plan to attend all four classes.  For more information, contact Phillip Baber and to register, contact Lois Hoeft at lbhjax2@comcast.net ~  904.477.8320, or register online at uucj.org/grow.  Childcare available on request by Oct. 5.

Missing Hymnals

We seem to be missing several gray hymnals.  If you have any in your possession, please return them to the church office at your earliest convenience.  Thanks!
