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: The Women’s Discussion Group will be meeting on Monday, January 10 at 12:30 on Zoom. We will be discussing a topic that you may have been thinking about recently – New Year’s Resolutions! Do you make a New Year’s Resolution? Why or why not? Have you ever had a successful New Year’s Resolution? What was your least successful resolution? If you made one for 2021 or for 2022, would you like to share it?

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.

Book Club: The UCF book group has chosen The Personal Librarian by Marie Benedict and Victoria Christopher Murray for our January discussion. This book is based on the life of J. P. Morgan’s personal librarian, Bella da Costa Greene. Greene was a light-skinned black woman whose mother insisted they pass as white. This lifestyle often forced Greene to not only ignore some of her relatives but to often walk a tightrope. We will be meeting on Saturday, January 15 at 1:00 p.m. at the Democratic Party Headquarters at 700 Arendell St.

Our February selection is Salt Houses by Hala Alyan. Feel free to join us for any or all of our discussions. We would love to have you. To learn more about our UCF book group, contact Joan Burton (ldybg223@aol.com or 201-669-1519.
