Affinity groups are small groups of people with similar interests. Put another way, it’s a group that intentionally meets to strengthen each other’s bonds to the group, and to the Boise Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, and the ideals we stand for. Descriptions of current affinity groups and contact information for leaders are listed below:
A monthly informal gathering with shared discussion of religious concerns from a humanist perspective. We also plan educational presentations, community service, and social events. Meets the 3rd Sunday of each month in the Library at 11:15am.
We focus on the spirituality of and community creation through quilting.
Classics Book Club
Each year we choose, by random draw, four selections from the Boise Public Library’s “Classics: A List of the World’s Great Novels.” We then gather quarterly at members’ to discuss one of the determined books. Our group is very small, and we would welcome new members.
Fiber Arts Affinity Group
The fiber arts group includes knitters, crocheters, cross-stitchers and what-have-you. We meet at 7pm on the first Tuesday of every month at the Library! at Cole and Ustick. All skill levels are welcome, and if you would like to learn a skill, we probably have somebody who can teach you.
Gaming Affinity Group
The gaming affinity group is a group for table-top role playing games. We mainly focus on playing GURPS Morrow Project – a post-apocalyptic game taking place some 500+ years in our future – and HarnMaster – a fantasy game taking place on the world of Harn. All skill levels are welcome, but space is limited, so please call ahead of time, (208) 473-0777. We meet Wednesdays and Thursdays from 6-9pm at Hawk Silverthorn’s home off of Five Mile.
The Other Book Club
Reads and discusses whatever strikes their fancy, usually current books. Meets monthly on the second Sunday of the month.
Meet at Kopper Kitchen on Airport Way at 9:30am on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month, January through October. Programs vary from personal life odysseys to book reviews. No age limit.
