NEW! Nature Church for Families

Are your children a bit too wiggly to sit through summer services, while RE (Religious Exploration) is on vacation?  Would you like to have an alternative way to be contemplative and build community?  This summer, FUSIT volunteers will be hosting Nature Church at various free, outdoor spaces as an opportunity for families to
be outside together, to connect with each other and with the natural world. All are welcome, and you can bring friends! All areas have open space for sitting, playing, and walking. Any walks will be easy to moderate, relatively level and less than an hour. Bring snacks and water.
