(Fourth Thursday Women's Group)
This group meets monthly, usually on the fourth Thursday, for fun and fellowship. We strive for a variety of activities and try to include all aspects of small groups: learning, caring, and serving. We often meet in each other’s homes: one woman hosts the group, another leads devotions, and a third brings dessert for our social time. At other times, we gather at a destination location for fellowship. In July, for example, we met at the Genesee Brewery for a tour and supper. That night we invited our significant others and the pastors. In 2015 we also met with other WUCC women and made prayer beads. We read and discussed some of Ann Weems’ Lenten poems, we sewed book bags, and we toured the Eastman House gardens. Sue Mitchell smitche4@rochester.rr.com
Women's Wine and Cheese Group
The name of this fellowship group kind of speaks for itself!This group of women from the 10:45 service gather together for fellowship and friendship. We try to meet monthly in each other’s homes. We usually find ourselves sitting around someone’s kitchen table chatting and laughing. Of course wine and other beverages and an assortment of munchies enhance our time together.

Men's Group The Men's group is an informal social group that meets several times a year. The goal is to get together and socialize. Past meetings have been to watch sporting events, talk about the beer making process, or just to socialize. We will meet at a member's house or at UCC.
