People often survive trauma that we are unaware of. Whether you are clergy, a member of a pastoral care team, a teacher, a leader, or simply a compassionate person, it is likely you will encounter survivors daily. During this workshop we will learn how to create empowering, physically and emotionally safe spaces for survivors, particularly those who have survived Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs).

Families Group Hike

Join us after church at Laurel Run in Church Hill on June 30th at 2PM. There's an easy hike to a waterfall that involves a small creek crossing, so be prepared to get your feet wet. If the creek is too high, there is also a playground and a large field with a walking track around it. See you there!

This is a social group for parents, grandparents or guardians who attend or are friends of Holston Valley Unitarian Universalist Church and have children and grandchildren from birth through school age. The goal of our group is to create a supportive community for ourselves and our children and grandchildren within our faith community.

Sip and Paint

Sip and Paint

Hosted by RISE: Healthy for Life

Learn how to do acrylic pours on April 12 and support responsible, inclusive sexuality education at the same time!

Your results will be organic, colorful, abstract, and reminiscent of some of the most striking elements in nature. Best of all, it's easy and fun and you cant really mess it up! This is fun ... and sloppy! Please wear clothes you don't mind getting paint on. Or an apron. Or both!

Snacks and drinks (including wine, seltzer, and juice) provided.

There are a few breaks needed in the pour process, so staff from RISE: Healthy for Life will be on hand to lead icebreakers and some games from the various levels of the Our Whole Lives comprehensive sexuality education curriculum, which covers kindergarten through older adult.

Remember to get your ticket at the link below. You don't have a reservation until you do--we have to buy supplies, food, and drinks, so please help us plan ahead! (And you know you want to come!!!)
