Grief GroUUp
Wednesdays, May 12 & June 9, 4:00-5:30 pm
Rev. Furrer and Milly Mullarky are convening a Grief GroUUp we suspect may interest some of our membership and help meet their current emotional needs. These are people who have recently lost a loved one and are in various stages of grief. You or someone you know might benefit from a supporting/listening/caring small group where we can offer ourselves to one another, including insights and strategies gleaned, and shoulders upon which to cry.

Planting at Food Bank Farm

Join together planting at the Food Bank. It's a chance to get outside, and off the screen, enjoying the fresh air, learning about food growing and how far generosity can go! Planting is done standing up by using a tool that makes a hole in the ground and drops the plant into the hole. No bending down required! Farmer Jim says this work is suitable for children with supervision, youth, families, adults....everyone! We have a chance to work and learn outside at The Food Bank Farm in Snohomish. Please RSVP by emailing Grace Colton.

Margaret Fuller Tea

Online Event

Margaret Fuller was an early feminist “Influencer” in the 19th Century. Two sisters fulfilled her philosophy by becoming our nation’s first and third medical school graduates and then went on (among other inroads) to found a women’s hospital in New York City that continues to this day. These are the doctors Elizabeth and Emily Blackwell. Learn about them and about some of our current ESUC sisters who work in the medical field at our tea.

East Shore Ruins… Native Rights

Online Event

America’s history books need a major update, especially when it comes to Native American history. Adam will show us some really messed up parts of the history and WHY that’s what we learn. Plus, there’s a very weird reason Mount Rushmore exists!

East Shore Outdoors Youth Adventures

12700 Southeast 32nd Street, Bellevue

On the last Saturday of every month, in February, March, April and May, join us for outdoor Saturday youth adventures. Each month will feature a different activity at a different location. And, on the second Sunday of each month, from 6-7pm, there will be an online planning session with volunteers and participants to get ready as a team. We ask that all interested youth attend the planning session. We'll talk about equipment requirements, transportation, location, meals, and such. These events are open to any youth in our immediate and extended community, so you can invite a friend whether they've been to East Shore forever or haven't been yet.

Fourth Wednesday Book Club: A Woman of No Importance

Online Event

In 1942, the Gestapo sent out an urgent transmission: "She is the most dangerous of all Allied spies. We must find and destroy her." The target in their sights was Virginia Hall, a Baltimore socialite who talked her way into Special Operations Executive, the spy organization dubbed Winston Churchill's "Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare." She became the first Allied woman deployed behind enemy lines and--despite her prosthetic leg--helped to light the flame of the French Resistance, revolutionizing secret warfare as we know it. Based on new and extensive research, Sonia Purnell has for the first time uncovered the full secret life of Virginia Hall--an astounding and inspiring story of heroism, spycraft, resistance, and personal triumph over shocking adversity. A Woman of No Importance is the breathtaking story of how one woman's fierce persistence helped win the war.

General Assembly 2021

Online Event

We hope that you will consider attending the national conference of Unitarian Universalists-the 2021 Virtual UUA General Assembly! As part of East Shore’s connection to our larger faith community, you can attend from home from June 23-27, online! The short list of worships and workshops below are just a handful of the fabulous 100+ live webinars and on-demand programs that GA registrants will have access to. And this year’s Ware Lecture will feature Stacey Abrams and Desmond Meade!
One of the best parts about virtual GA - if you miss a live webinar or have trouble choosing between options, you'll be able to catch up later on demand. Also, consider if you may want to serve as a delegate representative of East Shore or participate in the GA virtual choir!
