Faith Formation News – 1/13/22

Dear SUUS Families,

Thank you to ALL who joined the Faith Formation hike last Sunday at Chatfield Hollow! Despite the terrible forecast, the skies remained clear for our hike and we had a lovely time together. Stay tuned for more hiking adventures later this month!

This Sunday, January 16, and in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., we will have a ZOOM service with Rev. Terry, and hear a special story presented by Laura Martino. Following the 10:30am service, we will continue honoring Dr. King’s legacy with a walk around Guilford Green to visit the Witness Stones and share and honor the stories of those individuals who were enslaved and who helped shape our community.

I hope you are able to join us on Sunday.


P.S. THANK YOU Lagasse Family for signing up as our Little Free Library Stewards for the year! We are excited to help support your efforts and vision!
