The teens of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Door County (UUFDC) announced that a new Wednesday night coffeehouse gathering called “U-Night” had its initial gathering on June 16 at the Fellowship located on the south end of the Green Gables shops in Ephraim.
This will be a very open youth group sponsored by UUFDC that will initially meet five summer Wednesdays for an open mic gathering. Any teen from 12 to 18 years old is welcome to come and share songs, poetry, art, dance or any kind of creative piece that expresses their feelings, thoughts or spiritual beliefs. Teens may also come and listen or just hang out.
Popular Door County musician Katie Dahl will host and facilitate the summer meetings, and participate in the entertainment as well. There will be topics for every meeting and discussions on those topics, but no specific belief will be promoted. It will be open to everyone and all religions.
Dahl explained that she can bring a cohesive experience, especially in the arts, for the young people, and she is eager for the time with the kids.
The UUFDC board and members are enthusiastically supporting “U-Night.” Furniture, a stage and a keyboard have been donated and other resources of the Fellowship are committed to ensure the evenings will be stimulating and fun.
U-Nights gatherings are scheduled for June 30, July 21, July 28 and August 18 from 7-8:30 PM.
The U-Nights Coffeehouse blends with the philosophy of the UUFDC. The Fellowship represents a liberal religious presence in Door County, welcoming and encouraging a wide range of theological and secular beliefs and orientations.
