Meet new friends, connect with old friends and get into the spirit of the new year!

If you’re new to FUUSN (First Unitarian Universalist Society in Newton) or if you are from TPC (Theodore Parker Church), have you heard about Ferry Beach yet? Here’s all you need to know: We all head up to the beach in Maine to spend a joyful and relaxing weekend together.

What’s the place like?

Ferry Beach is a small UU conference center on a seven-mile stretch of sandy beach in Maine. It’s a collection of mostly renovated wood frame buildings from the last century. The main building has a lobby with a fireplace, comfy chairs and a wrap-around porch that faces the ocean. There is a huge dining room with a nice, big porch where we share catered meals.

What’s new this year?

In addition to TPC joining FUUSN, we have the weekend after Indigenous People’s weekend (for a reduced rate!) and are offering both 2 and 3 night packages, both of which include 6 meals. We will be updating the 2023 health protocols and have them out to everyone closer to the start of the weekend.
