Fellowship & Support Groups

Our fellowship groups are open to all. Zoom links for virtual-only or multiplatform meetings can be found on our calendar.

Living by Heart
Mondays 1:30-3:30 pm

Living by Heart gathers virtually every Monday for two hours to write, do art, and read and write poetry. We are open to all genders and abilities. Group founder Penny Hackett-Evans gave this definition of Living by Heart: “Living by Heart is trying to consistently identify and then live by a path that is closest to one’s heart, finding joy in creativity and community in which to share what is close to your heart.”

Humanists of BUC
Third Sunday of the month, 7:00-8:00 pm

The Humanists of BUC explores humanism as part of the UU faith. They meet monthly eight to nine times a year on Zoom, typically on the third Sunday evening of the month. The group’s programs are guided by the Humanist Manifesto III: “Humanism is a progressive philosophy of life that, without super-naturalism, affirms our ability and responsibility to lead ethical lives of personal fulfillment that aspire to the greater good of humanity.”

Sharing Dinners
Second Saturday of the month from October-May

Sharing Dinners are potluck-style dinners held in congregants’ homes on the second Saturday of the month from October through May. Groups are randomly assembled from participants who sign up each month and are assigned to hosts who sign up each month. Once assembled, groups communicate directly on scheduling and menu planning. Sharing Dinners brings BUC members, friends, and newcomers together in a relaxed environment to get to know one another better and build community.
