As things change daily with COVID-19 and vaccines, our summer programs are taking different approaches to how to meet this summer. Summer Institute and UUMAC will both be meeting virtually this year.
Summer Institute, meeting virtually July 11- 16. Theme: Food for the Soul.
We have a delicious menu of SI tidbits and treats – old traditions and new – ready for you and your family! You will find opportunities to connect with friends and meet new folks, to refresh and renew your spirituality, to think and learn, and to have some fun! We have built on what went well last year and are offering an exciting selection of tasty SI samples in anticipation of our in-person event in 2022 at Cal U. Register and learn more at their website.
UU Mid-Atlantic Community, meeting virtually July 11-31. Theme: Communities within Community.
Theme speaker is Paula Cole-Jones speaking on Communities within Community. Minister of the Month is Rev. Elias Ortega.
Over the decades UUMAC has become many things to many people: a spiritual retreat, time for reflection and celebration, a reunion with friends, a time to revel in a community of fun-loving and like-hearted people of all ages. From the Talent Show and Open Mic, to sharing our stories and experiences during the lay-led evening vespers services, UUMAC has many ways for us to connect and grow together. Events for children, youth, and adults will happen throughout the three weeks as we build our community of communities. Register and learn more at their website.
