We will meet for business at the beginning of our Spiritual Outing on the first Sunday of October, at Deegan-Hinkle Lake, to accept new members, followed by a book signing. If you are considering membership and have not yet let us know, please email email@example.com
From our Bylaws “Any person age 12 or over who joins in the Purpose and Covenant of this community may become a member after recommendation by the Ministry and Oversight Committee, acceptance by the congregation at a monthly meeting, and signing the Membership Book. All who sign the Membership Book shall become eligible to vote thirty (30) days after they sign. To remain a member, a person participates in the affairs of the community, remains in right relationship, and contributes time, money, or both.”
If you have additional items for the agenda, please email by September 26 so we can post a revised agenda by the ten-day deadline.

We’re sorry we missed you, but if you’d like to know what we did in church today, August 12, 2018, the full service is up here.
We will be joining UUFM tomorrow at their church in Morgantown.
Sunday May 20 at 10:45 AM at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Morgantown, Rev. Rose Edington and Rev. Mel Hoover will present “Love Will Guide us,” as the guests of UUFM and West Fork UUs. “Mel and Rose,” as retirees, still work on the state and national levels to promote social justice on many levels. Active elders in Black LIves of Unitarian Universalism, they will talk about the Intersectionality of “Race” and “Choice,” reminding us that: Black and Women’s Lives Matter. We will celebrate the inherent worth and dignity of one another together on Sunday. Please come.
The facility where our services occur is without water and it will not be restored in time for the service on Sunday, May 13, 2018. As a result, it is cancelled. Please visit us next Sunday.
We have Spiritual Outings on the first Sunday of each month during the warm days of summer (plus a bit). These Outings replace our usual worship service for that Sunday with an outdoor adventure. A brief and simple worship service at 11:00 a.m. is followed by a potluck picnic, conversation, some activity specific to the park we have chosen for that day, and a chance for us to reconnect our spirits to the natural world around us.
This is our schedule of Spiritual Outings for 2018:
- Sunday, June 3, 2018: Valley Falls State Park
- Sunday, July 1, 2018: Ferguson Memorial Park, Shinnston
- Sunday, August 5, 2018: Audra State Park
- Sunday, September 2, 2018: West Virginia Wildlife Center, French Creek
- Sunday, October 7, 2018: Deegan and Hinkle Lakes, Bridgeport
All are welcome. We would love to have you come worship and play with us.
For more details, please see the individual announcements on the WFUU blog at https://westforkuu.org/.
Daylight Saving Time BEGINS at 2:00 a.m. on Sunday, March 11. Remember to set your clocks ahead one hour tonight so you’re not late tomorrow morning!
Celebrate Yule with songs and guided meditation.
Friday, December 22 at 6 pm at the UUFM (Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Morgantown). Our theme is coming out of the dark and welcoming back the light.
We ask that participants bring with them a story of the darkness, whether it be a literal story about something memorable that happened in the dark, or perhaps metaphorically of coming out of a physical or emotional darkness, which they will be asked to share as part of the ritual. Afterwards, we plan a potluck meal, so please bring something yummy to share. We will have traditional Yule foods as well as wassail.
The fellowship is located at 429 Warrick Avenue, Morgantown, WV. Hope to see you there.
