In addition to our children’s and adult religious education activities, there are even more ways to connect or be involved at Berrien UU.

Berrien UU Book Club (Monthly)

Members of the Berrien UU Fellowship Book Club host monthly meetings, usually on a Friday, beginning at 7 p.m. The titles of the books to be read and discussed are selected by the book club members a month or two in advance. Please check our calendar to see the title of the next book, the date of the meeting, and who will be hosting. Facilitated by Amy Eklund.

Potluck Sunday (1st Sunday Monthly)

The first Sunday of each month everyone is invited to participate in our monthly potluck. Sharing a meal helps us slow down and connect with each other. Participation in the potluck can take many forms: bringing a dish to pass, enjoying food and fellowship, or helping with clean up.

Environmental Justice Film Series (3rd Thursday Monthly)

Movies and documentaries of environmental justice interest are screened free and followed by discussion.

UU AllComers (Twice per Year)

We encourage anyone interested in our fellowship or in Unitarian Universalism to attend our UU AllComers program to get to know more about us. UU AllComers is conducted by our minister, Rev. Jim McConnell. It provides an overview of Unitarian Universalist identity, history, and theology. It is designed especially for (but not limited to) UU or Berrien UU newcomers.

UU AllComers participants will hear about our fellowship and its programs. Members identify personal attitudes about religion and spirituality, and share them with the other group members. We explore the diversity of prior religious experiences of the participants.

A light meal is provided. UU AllComers is often part of the path to Berrien UU membership.

Annual Pledge Celebration Dinner & Cabaret (Spring)

The dinner is a celebration of our fundraising process. Entertainment is cabaret style skits and songs performed by Berrien UU members and friends.

Parents’ Night Out

Periodically, adult volunteers and child care workers will host a fun evening of food and activities for children 12 and under, usually on a Friday or Saturday night. BUUF members and friends are invited to drop off their children or grandchildren, especially those who already participate in our RE program. Often, parents will organize a group outing during this time period. However, adults are also free to enjoy a date night, shopping trip or other activity. All participants need to have a completed registration form on file before joining the event. There is no charge for participation.
