Capital Campaign Celebration!

Last October we launched the Building a Legacy Campaign to restore our historic Meeting House, pay down our mortgage, increase FUS sustainability endeavors, and complete a variety of other facility projects. We estimated that we’d need a total of $3.6 million dollars to fully fund all of these efforts. We aimed to raise 3 million dollars of those fund within our community. Join us as we celebrate our accomplishments with refreshments and fellowship after the 4:30 pm service on Saturday, January 27 and after each service on Sunday, January 28.

First Friday Film @ FUS

2018 marks the 50th anniversary of the passage of the Fair Housing Act. Yet, illegal housing discrimination is still common in Wisconsin and it harms all our communities. A leader from the Fair Housing Center of Greater Madison will share about this issue and we will be watching an episode of the “America Divided” series. We will also learn about how we can get involved in this vital civil rights movement by volunteering for the Fair Housing Center. Supper will be served at 5:45. The program and film will start at about 6:15 pm. For the children, we will also be showing Zootopia!

First Friday Film

FUS MOSES Ministry Team is sponsoring First Friday Film night on March 2. The meal will commence at 5:45 pm with the film starting at 6:15 pm. (The children’s film “The Bee Movie” will be shown at the same time.) Rather than a single longer film, the MOSES team will be showing three pairs of short films (about 5 minutes each), then leading a brief discussion after each related pair. Drawn from the Marshall Project’s “We Are Witnesses” series, these will be intimate first-person testimonials from people who have interacted with the criminal justice system, including those formerly incarcerated, their parents, crime victims and corrections officers. Please join us for a thought-provoking evening of food and fellowship.
