Online Church Groups and Events

To stay connected during this time of social distancing, we have created many online opportunities for engagement, worship, socializing, and support. Coffee Hours, Affinity Group meetings, and more are just a click away.

This page lists our regularly scheduled online activities that are open to drop-in attendance. Most of these events have the Zoom link listed, but for some, you will need to reach out to the facilitator or designated contact person to receive the link and passcode. Join links, with passcodes embedded can be found each Wednesday in the Weekly Connections newsletter. 

For other online activities, don’t forget to check out our Faith Formation offerings and the UUCE and Community Special Events page.
