Community Gathering at Arcadia

Sept 24, 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. Everyone is invited to gather at Arcadia for lunch and discussion after the service. Childcare provided.

 Friends, members, and newcomers will enjoy a light lunch together, socialize, and participate in small group reflection circles about what’s in our hearts and minds and how does (or could) this community fit in. We’ll gather some groups outdoors and under the pavilion at picnic tables or in circles of chairs. One group meets indoors. We encourage folks who can to bring their own chairs (in case we run out). We also encourage biking or carpooling from USNF.


Sunday, September 24, 11:30 am–1 pm
Please aim to arrive by 11:30 am for lunch. Reflection circles will begin at noon.
