All Church Retreat

Saturday, May 25 - Monday, May 27, 2024

We are ready to return to Sonoma Country to enjoy time with friends and family. We’ll spend our first evening at the campfire making s’mores, singing campfire songs, and staring up at the star-filled night sky. There will be time to enjoy a walk in the woods, read a book, or play games. We’ll have fun workshops and fun worship. We’ll dance the Happy Dance at the Talent Show. Come and rejuvenate the spirit. You’ll be glad you did.

 

The CYO Retreat Center has comfortable dormitory cabins, showers and bathrooms, a swimming pool, a pond for canoeing, archery, tennis and basketball courts, and beautiful trails. CYO is up the road from Wild Oat Bakery, famous for their sticky buns; local wineries; the town of Occidental; and close by to the Russian River. Retreaters bring their own bedding, towels, and toiletries.

ANNUAL MTG 24.jpg

Annual Meeting

Each year, the Society (UUSF) holds an annual meeting during the month of June. This year’s meeting is scheduled for June 2, 2024, commencing at 12:30, after the Sunday Service. The meeting will be held in person and over Zoom.

The Annual Meeting is an opportunity to thank the many members of the congregation who have volunteered their time and treasure during the year. We will vote on Board of Trustee and Nominating Committee candidates, Article II, and our new congregational covenant. We will also honor May Treat Morrison and remember those who have died. 

Don't forget to check out the nominees for the Board of Trustees and Nominating Committee. Elections will take place at the annual meeting.

CONGREGATIONAL COVENANT

Under Construction

In an effort to make the world a better place, we support each other’s journey to seek truth with openness, curiosity and respect for different perspectives and paths.


As love is our spirit, we commit to respect, accept, listen to and support each other.


We hold ourselves and each other accountable by continually assessing our individual and community actions toward living into our covenant. This will include speaking up when someone’s actions are not aligned.


We commit to be in community with openness and loving kindness, acknowledging our own biases and differing perspectives.


We welcome the newcomer, we commit to building trust with each other, we celebrate differences and make space for repair when harm occurs.
