Breakfast Forum at UUCLV meets most Sundays before service to keep our congregation up-to-date with educational topics and social activism in line with our Principles. The Zoom meetings begin at 8:30am with a meet & greet. The presentations begin at 9:00am and end at 10:00am to allow preparation for the worship service.

The best way to stay informed is to be added to the Breakfast Forum email list. An email is sent out every Thursday with the coming week’s topic and presenter. In the event that more advanced sessions have been scheduled, they will also be included in the weekly email. Importantly, the Zoom link for the meeting, which sometimes changes between weeks, will always be included in the weekly email.

If you would like to stay informed about Forum topics and presenters or if you would like to volunteer to give a presentation, please email Steve Wiggins.
