Programs and ActivitiesAll events are held at the Fellowship unless otherwise noted.
Worship ServicesServices are held each Sunday at 9:30 am. See the Sunday Services link or the Newsletter for information about the services.
SKUUF is fortunate to have a number of people who contribute music to Sunday services. Although we have no paid choir director or accompanist, the choir sings at all but one service a month. We have other members of the Fellowship who contribute instrumental musical talent. The choir rehearses Wednesday evenings at 7:30 PM in the Piano Area and at 8:45 AM in the Sanctuary on Sunday mornings before the service. We welcome new members. For information, contact the office at 536-8908.
Religious Education for K - 8th gradeThis program runs concurrently with the service. Please see the Religious Education page for further details.
Adult Religious Education
Adult education programs are a vital part of Starr King Fellowship. They are led by the minister, a committee or an ad hoc group which is formed to share what they have learned from a workshop. The programs can cover local and world issues such as environmental concerns or restorative justice, a charitable group we are supporting, a discussion of a sermon, a Fellowship subject such as long range planning, or any other subject of interest to members. The meetings are held on Sunday after the service and coffee hour.
Path to MembershipThis program is for people interested in becoming members of Starr King Unitarian Universalist Fellowship. There will be time to get to know each other and to share what has brought you to this point in your spiritual journey. You will learn about Unitarian Universalism, how UU churches are organized, and how UU churches work together. You will learn how SKUUF is organized, and you will hear about the programs and services that are offered by both our minister and various lay people in the fellowship. There will be an opportunity for you to ask about UUism and SKUUF.
Path to Membership is an interactive seminar designed to inform you about the benefits, opportunities, and responsibilities of SKUUF membership. If you are considering becoming an official member of our Fellowship, please contact Darlene Nadeau so we can include you in the coming class. There is no fee for the Path to Membership Program; however, kindly register on the sign up sheets in the foyer. Facilitators include Danni Simon, Darlene Nadeau, George Maloof, and Rev. Sarah Stewart. Babysitting will be provided if requested in advance.
Extending FamilySKUUF is a community of fellowship, and in many ways is similar to a caring family. Extending Family is in place to provide helping hands to members of our fellowship when needed in ways that members of a family would jump in to help. We use the term "extending" as our purpose is to operate in the present and there are no boundaries to which help is given. When a member becomes ill or has an accident there are at least twenty SKUUFers who want to cook a meal, provide transport, come and read, help with yard or other handy work or just come and visit. When a SKUUFer has a need, please contact Sue Brothers as soon as possible and we'll get the help they need.
Hatha YogaGentle yoga classes are offered on Wednesday from 5:00 to 6:00 PM and Saturday mornings from 8:30 - 9:30 AM. Please wear loose comfortable clothing and bring a yoga mat. Suggested donation is $10.00. There are occasional breaks for holidays or changes; it is best to confirm class session in advance. For details, please contact Darlene Nadeau at (603) 536-1179.

Wise Women in Training
Wise Women in Training is a women's study group which meets to discuss issues of women and aging. Members share experiences, questions and concerns about improving their lives while optimizing their happiness.
Generally this group is recommended for any women over forty years of age but younger women are welcome. This group of Wise Women remains open to new members and understands that due to work schedules and snow bird tendencies, etc. some people will be with us for limited times. Meetings are on the second and fourth Wednesdays at 10:00 to 11:30 AM. See the Events Calendar for details.

These sessions typically last 30 to 45 minutes. For specific dates, see one of the greeters or the announcements in the Sunday service program notes.
