The Northern Virginia Unitarian Universalist Cluster announces its first ever big event - the "Music, Faith and Fun Fest" - Saturday, October 3rd, 11am - 5pm at Accotink UU Church, 10125 Lakehaven Court, Burke, VA 22015. Groups are needed from all 10 Northern Virginia congregations - Accotink, Arlington, Bull Run, Blue Ridge, Fairfax, Loudoun, Mt. Vernon, Reston, Shenandoah Valley, and Sterling.

Bring your friends and family from across the NOVA area for a day of musical performances by church choirs and bands, a preach-off, food, fun, games, prizes, and lots of stuff for the whole family in a carnival atmosphere.
The event is rain or shine and family friendly; sponsored by the UU Northern Virginia Cluster of Congregations. Weather permitting, we will use the outdoor "WUUDStock Stage" for music and worship.

How can you participate?
First, save the date on your congregation's calendar and plan to attend.

Second, Each congregation is asked to bring: a preacher, musical act(s), a distinctive table cover for an 8 foot table, deserts that your youth can sell at your table (proceeds for a NOVA Cluster Youth CON), and a kid's activity.

Third, register here. We need a good headcount to plan for food. Registration is only $5 per family; proceeds go to offset the cost of renting equipment and paying backup musicians. Food will be the usual picnic fare and tickets will be sold at the venue. If you have particular food allergies, please bring your own food.

Lastly, bring yourself, family and friends and plan to have a good time spreading the light of UUism in our area! Tell everyone to bring a blanket or camping chairs. There will be accommodations for people with special needs, including priority seating and parking, as well as shuttles to bring people from our overflow parking sites.

If you have questions or want to sign up your act, please call the Accotink UU Church 703-503-4579 and ask for Reverend Scott.


Building Community Together

Saturday December 12th, 2015

From Rev. Archene Turner, Affiliated community minister at Cedar Lane Unitarian Universalist church in Bethesda, MD:

When we kicked off Building Community Together, for people of color in the DMV, the goal was to provide a space for spiritual and collegial support for families, youth and leaders of color active in our UU congregations. Participation was not a strong as hoped. We suspect that while interest may be there, making time for another activity may have been difficult.

Starting with this new church year, we will hold gatherings quarterly. They will be open to all ages.

As our congregations begin to address the Black Lives Matter movement, it may increase the emotional challenge for many of us. Our first gathering will allow us to focus on our spiritual health as we are impacted.

Please hold the date: Saturday December 12th!

Our special guest will be Raziq Brown, the incoming Youth and Young Adult Coordinator for the Central East Regional Group (CERG). More detailed information will follow.
