Taking care of our beloved community expresses our Core Values of Compassion, Inclusion, and Celebration.
The Care Team takes care of UUWaco members and friends in times of need: illness, hospice care, emotional upheaval. Care Team members may make hospital or home visits, deliver food, flowers or cards, and help create a network of care for those experiencing a crisis. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in helping with this process.
The Hospitality Team organizes our parties, and we love parties! From coffee and snacks before and after Sunday services, to Circle Suppers and potlucks, UUWaco enjoys eating, drinking and playing together, and the Hospitality Team helps make it happen. Email email@example.com if you love to have fun with friends and want to help.
The Reading Circle is a book club with a difference: instead of reading the same book, members gather once a month to share whatever they’ve read individually since their last meeting. It’s a great way to get book recommendations and have fun in a relaxed atmosphere. The Reading Circle meets on the second Monday of each month at a member’s home. For information and directions, email reading circle. To see what we’ve been reading lately, check out our page, which is updated each month.
Song Circle is like a campfire sing-along, but we do it indoors. Singers, listeners, and players meet bi-monthly on a Saturday night and go around the circle, requesting or playing songs with everyone joining in. Bring your snacks and favorite libations, and don’t forget your love for great shared music. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for information on the next Song Circle.
The UUWaco Vegetarian and Vegan Potluck happens on the third Saturday of each month, at 12:30 p.m. in the UUWaco kitchen and Fellowship Hall. Hungry folks bring their favorite tried and true veggie/vegan dishes, or they might try something new. Either way, the food is shared and appreciated, and attendees are encouraged to bring along copies of their recipes, so those can be shared as well. For more information, email email@example.com.
Waldo’s Coffeehouse is a place for local and regional musicians to show off their talents for an appreciative audience; all proceeds go to local charities or to special Social Action projects. Albert and Gage recently graced the Waldo’s stage, helping raise money for Planned Parenthood of Central Texas; prior to that, a Singer/Songwriter in the Round program helped us raise enough money to fund the digging of an Ethiopian water well. For information on our next Waldo’s performances, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each fall, members and friends of UUWaco gather at the group camp of Fort Parker State Park, about 45 minutes east of Waco between the small towns of Mexia and Groesbeck. From Friday afternoon through Sunday morning, attendees of all ages unplug and relax together. Favorite activities include all-day and all-night music jams, arts and crafts for kids and adults, board games, hikes in the woods, canoeing on beautiful Lake Mexia, and general recreation.
