$1000 Social Justice Scholarship

The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Door County (UUFDC) is pleased to announce a $1000 scholarship to be awarded to a Door County graduating senior who demonstrates an outstanding personal commitment to social justice.
This scholarship opportunity is open to all of Door County’s graduating high school or homeschool seniors. The deadline to submit an application is March 31, 2019. Application guidelines, requirements, and materials can be found at the Door County Scholarship Network website at:

A commitment to social justice is one of the founding principles of Unitarian Universalism. As the Unitarian Universalist Association website explains,

“Justice is at the core of our faith. Our congregations are called to make a positive difference in our wider communities. We work to serve, to raise awareness, and to support and partner with people who face injustice. We advocate, organize, and act for justice to live out the values of our faith.” (www.uua.org/justice-programs)

Through this scholarship, we encourage local students of any faith – or no faith – to persevere in the struggle for social justice, wherever and whenever they find it. The student does NOT need to be a member of the UUFDC to apply for this scholarship.

A representative of the Social Justice Committee would be happy to attend the student’s awards night, if any, to formally announce the recipient of the scholarship. Award money will be paid directly to the student’s college at the beginning of their second semester of study.

Thank you for sharing this opportunity with local students. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me, Kathleen Toerpe, Scholarship Administrator.


Sit Around Singing with Katie Dahl & Friends

Katie Dahl & the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Door County are proud to host the third annual season of Sit Around Singing, a community-wide sing along gathering. People of all ages are welcome! No prior knowledge of music or songs is required.

This singing season will begin on Thursday, December 6, taking place the first Thursday of every month through May. We will start at a new time: 6:00-7:00 pm at the UU Fellowship, which is located at 10341 Water Street/Highway 42 in north Ephraim.

The dates for upcoming Sit Around Singing gatherings are: January 3, February 7, March 7, April 4, and May 2.

We will sing from the songbook Rise Up Singing, which includes familiar favorites ranging from campfire classics, hymns, to Beatles tunes. Copies of the book will be available to use.

Local folksinger Katie Dahl founded Sit Around Singing with the hopes of creating intergenerational experiences of song and friendship for the people of Door County. “I was part of a regular singing gathering like this in college, and it taught me so many songs and helped me meet people I would never have met otherwise,” says Dahl.

Hot cocoa, cookies, and family take-home music activities will be provided!
