Mystery Buddies is Back!

Last year we offered a postcard exchange between kids and young adults in pairs who got to know each other over a four-week period of exchanging notes without knowing one another’s identities. After our final postcard exchange, we held a celebratory event in which mystery buddies learned one another’s identities. This year, we are doing the same with kids and congregational elders. All participants will receive a postcard kit with everything they need to participate. Mystery Buddies will run from February 27th through our celebratory event on March 27th. If you’d like to learn more or find out how you can participate, please reach out to Rev. Kathleen or contact Sierra-Marie at dre@uudanbury.org.

Participate in “Share the Love Sunday” February 13th !

All ages of adults and children are invited to participate in this special event on Sunday, February 13th
11:30a.m. – 12:30 p.m. In advance, participants will receive small laminated paper hearts, a sharpie to use for writing on the laminated hearts, and some ideas about how to write short messages of encouragement on the hearts.
On Sunday the 13th, come by the congregational parking lot anytime between 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Please wear a mask and bring your laminated hearts; food pantry donations of non-perishables and toiletries; and financial donations for Danbury-area organizations that directly serve the community, such as the Danbury Women’s Center (you will receive a list of these organizations in advance).
Leave some hearts with encouraging messages, take a heart with an encouraging message home with you, and leave food and financial donations for good causes. Any encouraging messages that don’t go home with participants will go with the food to the food pantry, for either staff or community members, or to the children’s hospital.
If you plan to participate, please RSVP by February 5th to Sierra-Marie at dre@uudanbury.org. You can write an email to the same address to nominate an area organization for donations.
