#UUCV Challenge

What is #UUCVchallenge?

#UUCVchallenge is a fun way for us to stay connected, keep learning and growing, and find some fun and humor right now.  You can also think of them as mini faith development exercises to incorporate into your spiritual practice. UUCV folks of every age are encouraged to participate!

How do we complete Challenges?

There are two ways to complete a Challenge!

  1. On Facebook, reply to that video and post a photo or short video of yourself completing the Challenge.  Remember to tag it #UUCVchallenge.
  2. If Facebook isn’t your thing, email your photo or video to Emily at RE@uucv.net. Emily can either share your submission on Facebook, or keep it private – your choice.
