Communication Committee Survey

Communication Committee Survey

UUFSD wants to make your life easier by knowing how to best keep you in the loop.

  • Are you overwhelmed by email or do you rely on it to stay in-the-know?
  • Do you feel like you’re always the last to hear about things — or do you strive to be one of the first?
  • Do you have ideas for how to improve fellowship communications?

You can find a 10-question survey about our current communications approach and some proposed changes HERE. The survey will be open through Oct. 8. Members of the Communications Committee will make hard copy surveys available on Sundays, September 28 and October 5. The results will be used to guide the fellowship in future communications and publicity, so we encourage you to participate. THANKS!

Sept. 26: Sacred Circles Pot Luck!

Join us for FREE PIZZA, SALAD and DRINKS as we explore “Sacred Circles”
(previously known as Spiritual Growth Circles)

Friday, September 26 from 6:30-8:00 PM at Fellowship Hall, UUFSD

What the heck is a Sacred Circle? 

Growth in congregational life can happen when we come together to create safe and sacred spaces and seek to understand ourselves, our boundaries, our gifts and our limitations in relation to others. The solo practitioner can only grow as far as they can imagine.  When others are introduced into our sacred space, we gain a broader and deeper understanding of the world and our place in it.

On September 26th from 6:30- 8:00 PM, you will have a chance to “test drive” the new format for the Sacred Circles and decide if you would like to participate this year. The commitment is meeting with your Sacred Circle ONCE per month at one of three locations (UUFSD, Encinitas, Rancho Bernardo) from October 2014 to May 2015.

RSVP no later than Sept 25th for this event so we can be sure to have enough food.

Email Linda Pratt
If you will need a babysitter, let us know before Sept. 19th.



The Sacred Circle facilitators (Vicky Newman, Glen Bowen and Linda Pratt) will be available after each Sunday Service in September. Sign-up opportunities will end on September 28th.

This is a wonderful opportunity and we hope that you will join us as we grow individually and collectively in our congregational life at UUFSD.

I am looking forward to beginning the new congregational year of Sacred Circles with you!

Sept. 21: Coming of Age Parent Meeting

Coming of Age (COA) is a year long program designed for 7-8-9th graders providing them an opportunity to search for their answers to life’s universal questions:

  • Who am I?
  • What do I believe
  • Where do I fit in?

COA starts on Saturday, September 27th.

If you would like to have your child to participate, please attend the mandatory parent meeting on Sunday, September 7th from 10-11am (between services) in the Montessori classroom.

The registration deadline is September 21, 2014. Students who are not registered by this date will not be able to participate in this year’s COA program.

Bring your calendar, your questions and your check book. All youth included regardless of ability to pay. If you are unable to attend the parent meeting, please contact Karla Milmoe or 858-922-2464.
