Social activities

We human beings are social animals, so FUS offers a variety of groups, events, and activities for making connections and having fun. Social groups are a great way to meet people in a larger congregation, and many of these are initiated by our members. If you’re a member and might like to lead a social activity, please contact us.

Women’s Awareness Group (WAG)

Our Women’s Awareness Group (WAG) grew out of a “Women in Religion” class taught at FUS in the early 1980s. Over the years we have explored literature, art, film, ideas, and current issues important to us as women.

Men’s Support Group

The FUS Men’s Support Group gathers monthly for support and sharing. Through facilitated discussion we engage our feelings, witness each other’s lives, and share our own life experiences to offer support.

Knitting and Needle Workers

A group of knitters gathers twice a month to share their current projects and catch up with each other. At times the conversation may include solving the world’s problems.

The Big Read (book reading group)

The readings are 50 to 100 pages of the chosen nonfiction book each month. It turns out to be something of a self-education effort in discussion with knowledgeable people.

Outings Club

Join FUS members on urban walks, nature hikes, and other social outings. Activities are organized by congregants and shared via an email list.

Young Adult Activities at the Society (YAAAS)

YAAAS helps members and newcomers in their 20s to mid-30s get connected to FUS and each other. Activities include social outings, game nights, reflection circles, book discussions, and more.

Write-About-It Group

Join our friendly, come-when-you can Zoom writing sessions. New folks are always welcome. We hear a prompt, write in real time, then share and listen appreciatively. Questions? Please email .
