UUFR’s Parent group is an inclusive gathering of families with infants, toddlers, school-aged children, and youth that offers parents, children, and families opportunities to fun, fellowship, and support, including Moms’ night out, Dad’s night out, preschool playgroup, camping trips, hikes at local parks, and more.
Family activities are posted in the Fellowship’s Chalice email newsletter, our weekly email newsletter for parents of children and youth, in the UUFR Parents Facebook group, and in the “news” section of our web site.

Fellowship of the Oak
Fellowship of the Oak is the Chapter of Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans (CUUPS) at UUFR. We meet the 3rd Saturday of each month with the exception of September when we have an information booth at Pagan Pride. We discuss pagan paths, celebrate the Sabbats, and collaborate with community pagans for celebrations and workshops. Our meetings are open to anyone who is interested in earth based religion. We are a “Liberal” pagan community meaning we welcome all pagan traditions. We are dedicated to networking Pagan-identified Unitarian Universalists (UUs), educating people about Paganism, promoting interfaith dialogue, developing Pagan liturgies and theologies, and supporting Pagan-identified UU religious professionals. We are a covenant group not a coven.
You can find us on our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/groups/uufrfotocuups
Raleigh Ramblers is an adult activities group for UUFR members and friends. Activities vary each month: movies, hikes, baseball games, and more. Participating in Ramblers events is a great way to get to know other UUs and explore Raleigh. Contact Pat Butler for more information.
Men’s Breakfast Group
The Men’s Breakfast gathers on the 3rd Saturday of each month at 9:00 in Peace Hall. We are an open group and we look forward to having new people try us out. Our meeting starts with breakfast ($4) and chatting, leading into a check-in where we share our names and what’s been going on in our lives over the past month.The rest of the time (until 11:00) is spent discussing a particular topic. The topics are always of a personal nature, and the sharing brings us all closer together. A sampling includes “Dad ” “What it means to be male” “What gives meaning to your life?” If you’d like to be added to our email list, please contact Art Lieberman at [email protected]
