HUUF Leadership Opportunities

Join the HUUF Leadership Team

Three board opportunities are currently available for service starting in September.
HUUF’s Board will be an integral part of our transition and growth.
This is an amazing opportunity for HUUF members to help guide our beloved organization while upholding the values that we represent. 

Collaborating and learning while deepening Fellowship relationships is a spiritual practice. 

Please contact Sylvia Shaw for more information: 707-599-1563,

Lifespan Religious Exploration

Sunday, September 4 – The Play’s the Thing:

Maria Montessori wrote famously that, “Play is the work of the child“.
In a product-driven culture such as ours, too often, we adults are taught to prioritize only those labors that culminate in a paycheck, outward goal met, or some other tangible, commodified outcome.  But where, in our work-driven society, do we set aside time and space for the element of PLAY?  

In this All Ages service, Director of Lifespan Religious Exploration, Amy Day, will move us through a multi-faceted experience designed to re-orient us to the value and impact of play, curiosity, and delight, and invite us to create space for these life-affirming qualities and practices inside our world once more. Join us!

The Ministry of Welcoming

Climate Action Campaign

 HUUF’s Climate Action Campaign’s
Action of the Month for September:

Vote Forward is an established organization that has proven its ability to mobilize voters. Utilized by numerous well-known political action groups, including “UU the Vote”,  Vote Forward aims to make effective letter writing activism easy by providing names, addresses, letter templates for each individual voter.At, you can choose from social or political campaigns that target voters in historically underrepresented groups, who live in states with recent histories of voter suppression or that  live in swing districts or states.


Our ability to grapple with all the crises threatening this country—including climate change—hinges on saving our democracy. The best way for us to pitch in is to help GET OUT THE VOTE! for the November midterms.
