Artistic Expressions – Exploring art and the physical and emotional impact it has on our health with Colleen Prendergast
Studies have shown that expressing ourselves through art can help with depression, anxiety, and even cancer. It has also been linked to improved memory, reasoning, and resilience. These benefits don’t just come from making art, they also occur by experiencing art.
Come enjoy a delightful evening of viewing art and playing with art supplies with a focus on process, not product. Let your inner kid come out to play. Supplies will be available for those who attend in person. If you are attending virtually, please have paper, writing implements, markers, and/or colored pencils available.
Click here for more details.

Book Discussion: Burnout
Join Rev. Christina on October 14 from 6:30-8:00 pm CT for a discussion of the book Burnout- The Secret to Unlocking the Stress Cycle by Emily and Amelia Nagoski (available at local libraries). Please don’t feel pressured to read the whole thing—if you only have time to read a bit, the first segment (chapters 1-3) is the most useful! Even if you can’t read anything at all, please still feel free to join the discussion which is sure to be rich.

The discussion will take place in person and virtually, see our website HERE for log-in details.

Burnout came out in early 2020, right before the pandemic (prescient!), and is an easy-to-read and often funny exploration of the science behind stress. It offers understandable and useful ways to let go of stress in our bodies more effectively. This book is written for people who identify or were socialized as women, and there are many discussions of the ways society treats women differently, but after the 18 months we’ve all experienced, Rev. Christina has no doubt that anyone of any gender could find useful parts of this book! 

UU Theology with Rev. Christina Leone-Tracy

November 2, December 7, January 4, February 1, March 1, April 5; 6:30-8:00 pm CT
UU Theology is a 6-session introduction to theological concepts through a Unitarian Universalist lens. Each session asks what does our Unitarian Universalist tradition teach about this theological concept, and how does that help me clarify and act on my own beliefs? The themes include:
• What is Theology?
• What are God and Spirit?
• What is Our Purpose?
• Who Are We?
• What Are Our Sources?
• What Saves Us?
You are encouraged to attend all the sessions, in order to get the most out of it, but are also welcome to attend just those which you are able. Participants will be able to attend virtually or in person. Contact the Fellowship Secretary at to sign up or Rev. Christina at with questions.


Photo Buttons Available!

Bring in a photo to make it into a button so we can still see each other’s faces while wearing masks! We have all of the supplies to quickly make a 3-inch button. If you need us to print your photo, send it to and it will be ready for you on Sunday!

Hello and See You Soon!

The only constant is change, and that continues to be true here at the Fellowship!
Recently we hired an additional Audio Visual Technician to help on Sunday mornings. Don't worry, Adam isn't going away, but he sometimes needs to take a weekend off so we hired Jonathan Steffen to take care of the AV on those Sundays. Welcome and hello, Jonathan!
Sadly, our Religious Education Assistant, Eve Rosera, needed to step away from her role as of this week, to focus on her health and self-care. We appreciate all of Eve's RE help, joy, and enthusiasm with our young people, especially these difficult past 18 months. We will continue to see Eve around as she will continue her membership at the Fellowship and will volunteer in RE when she's ready. We will begin the process to hire a new RE Assistant as soon as possible. Thank you and see you soon, Eve!

Religious Education - Children and Youth

Stewardship in RE

Our elementary-aged children in grades 1-6 began collecting stewardship offerings as a spiritual practice last Sunday. We will be taking a small collection each week during our classroom rituals. If you would like your child to participate, please send them to class with whatever amount you see fit, or even better, have them bring their own to give! Pennies and loose change accepted.
This offering will go to the Fellowship, but at the end of the year, the children will vote for how they would like their accumulated collection to be used. Children who don’t have money to put into the basket will symbolically and lightly “blow” a kiss as their contribution to spreading love to the Fellowship.

Crossing Paths

Crossing Paths for students in 7th grade and above will meet again on Sunday, October 17 in the Legacy Room or on Zoom. This class is offered every 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month throughout the program year. Youth in these grades who are present at the Fellowship on “off” Sundays (2nd and 4th) must be in the sanctuary; there will be no supervision in the building and they will not be permitted to wander on their own. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. The worship staff looks forward to welcoming them!
