The Friendly Forum

Sundays at 10:30am (or 9:30am during the summer) in Room 113.

The Friendly Forum is open to all, and topics are scheduled based on suggestions from participants. The topics may be spiritual or material, entertaining or serious, UUCF-related or not. We seek to create a safe, welcoming place to learn, freely express opinions, and to be informed of the opinions of others.

Upcoming Sessions

Often 2nd Sundays are topics related to the following week's split-plate nominees. Usually at least one other Sunday each month is a Building Beloved Community Conversation, hosted by our Dismantling Racism Team.
