Ministry of Fun 

Socially-Distanced Social Events!
The newly established UUFF Ministry of Fun is bringing you a gaggle of Socially Distanced Social Events to brighten your 2020 summer and help us stay connected while staying safe. We want to make these activities as safe as possible so most people will feel safe participating, so we have established the Safety Covenant described below and ask that all participates abide by it. Masks will be required at all events, and a volunteer will be on site to gently remind us to keep our 6’ distance. We ask everyone to make their own decision about what feels safe to them when deciding to participate.

What Fun Activities?

Stay tuned to the weekly UUFF email announcements and live announcements during Sunday services to find out about upcoming Ministry of Fun activities. We are setting up a new Facebook discussion group, open to UUFF members and friends, to provide detailed info on upcoming events and also hear your suggestions. Anyone can volunteer to lead an activity, but our safety covenant requires two leaders for every activity. We are looking for two co-coordinators for the Ministry. If you can help, please let us know.

Safety Covenant
We want to make these activities as safe as possible so most people will feel safe participating, but nothing is completely safe. We ask everyone to make their own decision about what feels safe to them when deciding to participate. Activity leaders are asked to be clear about expectations for what the activity entails (physically and otherwise) so people can make informed decisions.
  • Activities are limited to UUFF members and friends. (If you think you are a friend, you probably are.)
  • Anyone can volunteer to lead an activity, but all activities should have 2 leaders for for safety sake
  • Masks and social distancing required at all events
  • One person will be designated to remind us if socially distancing becomes lax while we are having fun.
  • No carpooling. Ride with members of your own household or established COVID bubble.
  • No food will be shared. (Picnics OK, potlucks are not.)
  • Bring your own water or other beverage and your own snacks if snacks are desired.
  • Bathrooms may not be available. Trip leaders will set reasonable times for activities where lack of bathrooms may be an issue.
This is about keeping everyone in our community safe, including those with health vulnerabilities. Please respect others in our community by staying home if any of the following apply to you:

  • You are waiting for your own test results to come back, are feeling under the weather, or have any known COVID symptoms including:
    • Fever or chills
    • Cough
    • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
    • Fatigue
    • Muscle or body aches
