Everyone at the Table – Our Annual Sharing of Bread

We invite all in the community – especially children and families – to be a part of our annual Intergenerational Bread Communion service. In the spirit of the harvest season, at this service for all ages we will come together to express the many ways we experience gratitude in our lives. We’ll have fun with songs, stories and the ritual of setting a shared table.

This year we’re inviting contributions of bread (or muffins, or rolls), apples and other fruit that we can use in our ritual of setting a table big enough for all! (And we’ll each get to take home some bread and fruit!)
The service will be led by Rev. Sue Browning, Liz Hausburg and UUFE’s choir.  If questions, please email the office at uufe@goeaston.net.
