Do you want to get involved at First Unitarian Society of Ithaca but don’t know how? Are you looking for a place to use your voice to shape our congregation and church? Are you just been looking for something to do on a Wednesday night? All Church Night is the place for you!
What is it?
All church night is your one-stop shop to getting more involved in activities at FUSIT. Most of our Teams meet by the hour from 6:00 to 8:30 after a potluck dinner at 5:00. If you’ve wanted to get involved but have young children to look after, childcare is provided. It’s a chance to get involved in everything from RE to building and grounds in just 2 hours a month.
All Church Night is the second Wednesday of every month. The event begins at 5:00 with a potluck dinner in the annex of the parish house (306 N. Aurora Street, Ithaca NY.) All are welcome to come and enjoy good food and conversation. Please bring your own plate, cup, and silverware. During the dinner schedules with committee/team meetings will be passed out to each table of diners. Teams/committees will meet from 6:00-8:30, some for an hour, some for half an hour, and so on. While some teams are still unable to meet on All Church Night due to scheduling conflicts, they may have representatives at the dinner and around the church during meetings.
