Bibliophiles unite! We’re not a book group, we’re an ALL THE BOOKS group!
Unlike many book clubs, the UU Waco Reading Circle does not read the same book at the same time. Instead, we come together to share what each of us has been reading for the past month. This allows everyone to share at least one great book, and everyone else gets to add interesting titles to their reading list.
The UUWaco Reading Circle provides a great environment for friends to share ideas. Join us for a great night of fellowship and fun.
We meet on Zoom the 2nd Monday of each month.
Contact Terri Jo Mosley for more information.
House and Grounds Projects

We welcome volunteers to help us!

The UUWaco Becoming UU class meets once a quarter. Join our Board members and other guests for our online Newcomers’ class. We enjoy an afternoon of sharing, learning, and fun.
While this class is open to all, we’ve designed it especially for those interested in learning more about Unitarian Universalism and UUWaco.

A long tradition at UUFW has been to gather quarterly in members' homes, in small groups, to dine together and get to now one another. We call these gatherings "Circle Suppers," and limit each "circle" to 6 or 8 people. Hosts provide their homes and hospitality, while others bring food and drink for a delicious potluck dinner. When possible, groups are assembled with the goal of introducing people who don't know each other well before the dinner, but who leave having made new friends.
Until we decide to start meeting together in person, we're instead meeting virtually, on Zoom. While it's not possible to share dinner, we're still able to get to know one another.
Contact Marty VanWagner for more information.
Music and Choir

The first Sunday of each month we bring boxes of cereal, as well as spare change, to Sunday service. We donate that cereal to Caritas of Waco, which fights poverty and food insecurity in our area.
Additionally, coinciding with the Super Bowl each year, we raise additional money for Caritas. Before the pandemic, this was done via a fundraising potluck dinner in our Fellowship Hall, and we hope to return to that tradition in 2022.
