Come and explore true fellowship in any of UUFC’s small groups!

Note that some are in person, some are online, and some are on hold while the pandemic is still with us. Please reach out to the group contact for current information.

Men’s Breakfast – Every Thursday, 9am, Jack’s Restaurant on Main Street in Chico. There’s always room for more at the weekly Men’s Breakfast, where we gather for unplanned conversations. Any number of topics may arise during the day’s meal. We hope to see some of the newer folks at UUFC drop in for a big welcome. Gary Collier  342-6087

No Guilt Book Club – Fourth Thursday of the month, 7pm, on Zoom. We welcome everyone and every subject! Our readers are both men and women, our books both fiction and non-fiction and our choices both current and classic. Past books have included “Lincoln in the Bardo,” “Between the World and Me,” and “Me Talk Pretty One Day.” We welcome your mind, your voice and your book suggestions!

Artist’s Way Covenant Group – Third Thursday of the month, 7 pm, in person or on Zoom. This group explores creativity as a spiritual gift and practice and we enjoy sharing our artistic journeys, whatever the medium. We started by reading and following The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron, and continue to be guided by different resources and each other. Margaret Aumann yalza@sbcglobal.net

Wayward Mind Book Group – This group will resume soon! Third Wednesday of the month, 7pm. The Wayward Mind Book Discussion Group investigates how our brains work in making decisions.  We seek understanding of the unfathomable differences in worldview marking our current national discussions.  If the books of Malcolm Gladwell, Oliver Saks and Daniel Kahneman prompt you to exclaim, “How could that be?”, then you may be “one of us!”  We love discussing books that test, as Kahneman said, “our almost unlimited ability to ignore our ignorance.” Larry Jendro 533-1413

Dinners for Eight – These gatherings are on hold during the pandemic, but we look forward to resuming when we can, typically as follows: Dates vary (2-3 times per year) and the structure is simple: the host who provides the house also provides the main dish, while all others contribute appetizers, side dishes and dessert. Discussion topics roam through the interests, questions and experiences of the people at the table.
