First Big Tuesday Together

Last night we hosted our first Big Tuesday Together at the church. We began the evening with a vespers service on the theme of renewal (see order of service below.) We then shared a delicious soup supper prepared by Rev. Jeanne and Regina. They cooked enough potato soup to fill the fountain! Then Rev. Jeanne led a class on "Articulating Your UU Faith." The kids had a big time painting and frolicking. We had between 20 and 35 people throughout the night which was really wonderful for the first night out. And EVERYONE commented on how much fun it was. So, we'll see you next Tuesday and we'll make more soup!
