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 and UCF Book Club

Since our Christmas tea had to be canceled due to Covid, we have decided to have a New Year’s Tea instead. The Women’s Discussion Group will be meeting on Monday, January 16 at 2 PM at Joan Burton’s house. Our topic for January should be a lot of fun: If you could change your name, what would you change it to and why? If you would like more information about the Women’s Discussion Group or would like to be added to our email list, contact Susan Roberts at landfall2@mindspring.com or 843-217-1885.

All in the Women’s Discussion Group are invited to stay for the UCF Book Club’s first annual New Year’s Tea at 3:00 which will be followed by a discussion of The Sentence by Louise Erdrich. The New York Times describes this novel by Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award winner Erdrich as “a wickedly funny ghost story, a tale of passion, of a complex marriage, and of a woman’s relentless errors.” If you are able, bring something small and sweet for the tea table. Please RSVP – Text or call Joan at 201-669-1519.

Mental Health Family Support Group:
