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.

Monocacy Farm Project

Presented by Eli Stogsdill, sponsored by the Social Action Committee

The Monocacy Farm Project is a gem that lies on the edge of our city and serves Bethlehem, Easton and Allentown. Eli Stogsdill, the project manager and lead farmer of the 53 acre organic farm owned and managed by the School Sisters of St. Francis, will take us on a virtual tour of the farm during our SAC sponsored Breakfast Forum on September 12th. The farm is conveniently located on Bridle Path Rd. in Bethlehem.

Eli will expand upon the Monocacy Farm Projects mission statement that states the farm “models stewardship and care of the Earth, fosters community involvement, provides educational opportunities and serves the needs of the poor.” You will not only learn about the farm but also hear about opportunities for hands on involvement.
