November 5, 2017 Service: Change

Please join us at UUCF on November 5th at 11am for our Sunday service celebrating Change. For some, the last day of October marks the end of year. To others it is a transition, a change. What will be the change that effects you? 

UUCF Member Angela Tousey will talk with us about the Celtic/Pagan celebration of Samhain. Service is followed by refreshments and discussion. Child care is available. You are welcome here!
