Our congregation is diverse and we have groups that meet regularly to share our interests, support each other, or just socialize and get to know each other.  Check the calendar or our monthly newsletter, Our Coastline (link in the footer below) for up-to-date meeting dates and times.

These UCF groups meet regularly and are open to all who are interested. All meet at UCF unless otherwise noted. Suggestions for new groups are always welcome.

Women’s Discussion Group:  We have a special treat in store for our July Women’s Discussion Group. Guerry Willis has invited us to meet at her house. (107 Oakmont Court, Morehead City, NC 28557 in Brandywine Bay.) Bring your lunch and we will get together at 12:30 on Wednesday, July 7. We have an interesting and perhaps entertaining or embarrassing discussion question for July: What is the craziest thing your parent or parents ever did? (Or the craziest thing you think they might have done.) Please bring a photo of your parents with you. I am looking forward to hearing about your parents escapades and seeing their photographs! If you are not on the Women’s Discussion Group email list and would like to be, contact Susan Roberts at landfall2@mindspring.com or 843-217-1885.
