- experience lived UU values and perspectives
- make a personal connection with a few members of the larger congregation
- explore your own spiritual journey in a social setting

Maybe you'd like to join one! To try one out, please contact Rev. Melissa Mummert (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) or Gabriele Weinberger (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)
