We gathered around our fire pit again for hot dogs, s’mores, carols, and fellowship! Thanks to everyone who helped host and those who attended!

We had a big celebration on June 12th at the end of our program year. Take a look!
Thanks to the Dennis Lin Fund, Sunday Fellowship was able to celebrate forty years of ministry in style. Gorgeous outfits, elaborate decorations (complete with a red carpet), enthusiastic dancing, a photo booth, karaoke and delicious food under a tent in the Garden made the SF Prom a day to remember. A toast to the members and friends of Sunday Fellowship throughout the years on whose shoulders we now stand. Dennis, we know you would have loved it!
Frozen bubbles, painted snow, delicious food, wonderful company, and a roaring fire all combined last Sunday to create a fantastic February fire pit! Check out the pictures of our fun time together!
It was a wonderful day to give thanks to God and celebrate our giving! Thank you to everyone who joined in.
Our yearly tradition of Youth Pie Baking is back in person this year! In two hours on Saturday night, we baked 15 apple pies, wrote notes to some beloved friends in the congregation, and still had time for pizza and games. A huge thanks to these thoughtful and generous young people and to all those who pitched in to make some deliveries this year. It takes a village.
An incredible evening of singing, fellowship, roasted hot dogs and S’mores was enjoyed by all ages last Sunday, with folks hanging by the fire and playing lawn games while the sky darkened above. The hot dogs were delicious, the S’mores were plentiful, and the joy of being together was a gift to all.
Be sure to join us next month on December 12th as we add an additional fire pit (two fires to enjoy!!), more hot dogs, and more fun!
What could be better than a crisp fall evening with great company and a roaring fire? Some sticky, sweet S’mores of course! Enjoy the photos of our very first Fire Pit Fellowship from last Sunday, and try not to let your mouth water too much with the delight of roasted marshmallows and melted chocolate. We hope you can join us on Sunday, November 7th for our next Fire Pit Fellowship!
Last Sunday the sun was bright, the picking was plentiful, and the donuts were delicious as almost 30 adults and children joined us for a delightful afternoon at Carver Hill Orchard in Stow for our beloved apple picking tradition. We were so busy picking and visiting and having fun together, I only got a few pictures, but it truly was a blessed event and it felt so good to be together. Hooray for apples and friends!
WCUC’s walking prayer group has resumed its in-person meetings on Monday mornings beginning at 9:30am. Alternating weeks between the Welcome Garden and Walden Pond, this is a group of fellow travelers who come together to share life’s challenges and celebrations, enjoy the company of friends, and walk in nature to absorb the beauty of creation and listen for God’s guidance.
Quaker author and activist, Parker Palmer, writes:
“When the world’s heartbreak threatens to take me down, it helps if I can remember that this is not the only world to which I belong. Like every human being, I have “dual citizenship.”
I’m not talking about another country, or a world we create with wishful thinking. I mean the vast and very real world of nature that stretches from our bodies to all the life around us, then to the stars, and on to the immensity we call the cosmos. I mean a natural world so vast that we can never do the harm we have done on earth.
Remembering my “dual citizenship” is not an effort to evade the world of human heartbreak. By understanding that I belong to a cosmos that has seen it all, embraced it all, and folded all of it into what is, I have a better chance to “see life steadily and see it whole”.
When I can look at life that way, I’m better able to engage creatively with the here and now, neither crushed by a sense of inadequacy nor lost in fantasy.
Rooted in the serenity of that cosmic reality, return to the heartbreak of everyday life to contribute whatever you can to healing and peace.”
