Since I joined KUF almost two years ago, I have been welcomed in the group as together we explore what spirituality is and engage in meaningful dialogue with each other. People have reached out to include and invite me to participate. With our fabulous new … read more.

Coming Up ONLINE at KUF: KUF Summer Gatherings
Sunday June 28th was our last regular Sunday Service before our usual break for the summer. Services will resume in the fall — watch MiniLinks over the summer for more info!
But in the meantime, it’s going to be easier than ever to stay connected with the KUF community over the summer, as our Sunday morning Zoom gatherings will continue through July and August!
Starting July 5th, and continuing every Sunday morning over the summer, you’ll be able to catch up with other KUF members and friends and continue to share in the online community that we’ve been building this spring.
Please note that these summer Sunday gatherings will take place in a different Zoom room from the regular KUF Sunday Services — please find your summer details below, and as always, if you have any questions at all, get in touch with the KUF Admin Office at firstname.lastname@example.org

A Summer MinistryLink from Rev. Beckett
We have reached the end of our 3rd congregational year together, and that means that I’m headed off for some vacation and study leave over the months of July and August. My email will not be monitored, but your Board and Committee on Shared Ministry know how to be in touch with me in the event of an emergency-please do let them know as soon as possible if any emergencies arise which require the presence of your minister.
As you have no doubt seen in recent emails, we will continue to gather each Sunday morning at 10:30am through the summer. These will be informal gatherings, rather than Sunday Services, and your Sunday Services Committee has been hard at work bringing it all together. Please watch your MiniLinks emails through the summer for information, and the summer KUF Zoom link is included elsewhere in this MiniLinks.
Also, the CUC is also offering Sunday Summer Services Series, and you can find more information here:
CUC summer services will be at at 4pm ET every Sunday through July and August (except July 12, when service will be at 12:30pm ET). Preregistration on Zoom is required. Additional registration details can be found in the July Minilinks. Once you have registered, you will receive an email from Zoom with the link, call-in information and meeting ID.
Your summer homework is this: open the KUF Directory (if you need a directory please contact the office) once a week, and pick someone to call. One week you might introduce yourself as a fellow member of KUF to someone you don’t know, and another week you may talk to a friend you haven’t talked to since some in-person coffee hour in the past.
Let them know you’d enjoy a conversation with them should they have the time, and if you are the one answering your phone-now you know why you might be getting phone calls this summer! Staying connected to one another is deeply important in these times of physical separation for the sake of our health.
I hope you have a lovely summer, and we will come back together to open our next year in community on Sunday 30 August 2020.

KUF COVID-19 Update
April 16, 2020 Update – KUF will continue to suspend all services, meetings, rentals, gatherings, and other activities within our building until further notice.
Meetings and services are being moved online where possible, or cancelled if necessary. Check out the instructions for using Zoom.
The Executive Committee met after Ontario was declared a state of emergency to make this decision, keeping the health and safety of our members, friends, and staff as our priority.
Don’t hesitate to contact KUF if you are in need of help. We will rise to meet this challenge as a community that works to protect and care for one another both physically and spiritually.
