We need to stay connected. The ways we connect are evolving daily in response to the needs and abilities of our church family and our community. This page has the latest updates on how our groups are managing to keep us connected. We will update this info at least every other day, so check back frequently. The latest news will be at the top.

Updates Schedule – A note about the Email Updates – at the moment they are planned for twice a week. The first will be sent on Tuesday morning to just Members. I don’t have an official “deadline”, but if you have something you want included in the Tuesday update I will generally need to receive it by 8am Tuesday morning. The second update will be sent on Thursday or Friday morning to everyone who has asked to receive the News and Notes. Again, there is no specific deadline but if you want to be sure your item is included send it by Thursday at 8am. All articles should be sent to the office: office.uuslo@gmail.com

LIT WITS – Tuesday – 6/2/20 – 7 to 8:30pm:  On June 2 we will be discussing Educated: A Memoir by Tara Westover.  Tara was raised in Idaho by survivalist parents and first entered a classroom at 17.  Eventually she earns a PhD from Cambridge University.  It is a long and difficult journey.

If you haven’t been to Lit Wits in awhile, or if you’ve never been, you are invited to join with us for a zoom book discussion on the first Tuesday of each month.  We alternate between fiction and non-fiction books.  You can see information on our upcoming book each month here on our website, uuslo.org, under Staying Connected – Latest News on Groups and Committees.  The link is https://us02web.zoom.us/j/565091453 for the meeting.

On Tuesday, July 7, we will be discussing The Dutch House by Ann Patchett who delivers her most powerful novel to date, a richly moving story that explores the indelible bond between two siblings, the house of their childhood, and a past that will not let them go.

You can get in touch with Jan Clarke or Mary Parker if you have any questions.  Hope to see you on the first Tuesday.

Worship – continues every Sunday at 10:30am by Zoom. See the home page for details.
