Allen Avenue Men’s Group is an open and supportive community of UU men, who share experiences, insights and good times as part of self-discovery and growth.
We have breakfast and community every second Saturday of the month, 8:00 to 10:00 AM at church. Besides good food and conversation, we have a check-in and join in a program led by a member or guest. We also get together for other activities. It’s a great way to make new friends. Come Visit Us!
Our last daylong retreat, celebrated each November is pictured here.
