Sedona Unitarian Universalist Fellowship

Open Book
Light Bulb
Special Interest Group Events

We come together for Sunday worship to shape and define what is of value and worth to us. Our services focus on topics of spiritual, social and current concerns. We come together to sing, meditate and share our lives with one another. Our worship is designed to meet the diversity of spiritual paths that are embraced within Unitarian Universalism. Sunday services offer a celebration of community, an intellectual challenge and a deepening of the heart.

Our Services are held from September thru May generally at 10:00AM at The Jewish Community of Sedona & the Verde Valley, 100 Meadowlark Dr, Sedona. Exact dates and times of the services appear below.

The newsletter is now published on a monthly basis only. It is being sent on the second Thursday, following the monthly board meeting and will include a recap of those items discussed at the board meeting. The change is due to policy in place regarding the newsletter. All those persons that have information that needs to appear in the newsletter MUST have said information to the editor, Michelle Snyder, no later than 5:00 PM on Thursday evening of the publication.

Friendly Feasts

Fantastic Meals! Stimulating Conversations! Charming Dining Companions! Sound Interesting?

Then SUUF Friendly Feasts are for you! Our Friendly Feasts are generally held on the third Saturday of the month. For the 2018/2019 season, our dinner dates will be, Nov 17, Jan 19, Feb 16, March 16 and April 20. We do not have dinners in December or May. Mark your calendars now with these dates so you don’t miss a single one!

The designated host(s) for each month contacts their assigned guests and lets them know what to bring to accompany the host’s chosen entreĢe. Guests contribute an appetizer, side dish or dessert. Friendly Feasts welcome all adults: single or couples. Everyone should plan to host as least once during the year. Hosting is a necessary requirement for participation.

You may join either as a regular participant or you may ask to be added to the substitute list. For more information, or to confirm you’d like to participate in the upcoming year, please contact Dreama Aldredge
