This is a wonderful example of what our children learn during their Religious Education class at FUFON. They named their creation Chalice Art.
The February Messy UU Church ‘Gathered around the Flame’
And what fun it was! The children created an indoor campfire, ate camp food, and shared camp stories and songs. Older kids and adults built a virtual campfire and everyone enjoyed baked beans and s ‘mores – yum!
The next Messy UU Church will be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with all things good and green Friday, March 17th, 5 pm to 7:30 pm. Kiss the Blarney Stone, fill a Pot O’ Gold with acts of kindness, and enjoy green-coloured food! Everyone welcome. Please RSVP by e-mailing messyUUchurch@gmail.com or call 250 755-1215.
Our Fellowship keeps growing
We recently had 4 new members join our Fellowship. As is customary, they were welcomed with a lovely ceremony and a delicious cake for all to share. Welcome Eileen, Bev, Lois and Krista, we are happy to have you in our midst.

Messy UU Church is back
On October 21st a dozen children and their parents attended the first Messy Church event of this program year. And what a blast it was! A kid friendly dinner combined with fun making Halloween pumpkins, . . .what can be better than that for children and adults alike!
Thanks go to Rebecca Stanley, the Children’s Religious Education team and volunteers for organizing this popular event and providing guidance and oversight.
