Celebrate Commitment Stewardship Campaign is Underway!
Singing together is inspiring. It feels good. It raises the level of hormones, like serotonin. Join us for our next song circle on Thursday night February 26 at 7:00 p.m. on the second floor of the Foyer of UUCC. Whoever like to sing songs or sit and listen is welcome to attend. Instruments are also appreciated. For more information contact Rich Greene.
Youth-Led Brunch Fundraiser
Don't miss the annual youth-led brunch held after each service on Sunday, March 1. The menu of egg casseroles, pancakes, meat and veggie sausages, and fruit remains the same, as does the cost - still less than what it would cost you to get all this in a restaurant! This is a fun opportunity to join friends for a casual meal while supporting a good cause!
Potato Bar and Game Night
"We're in the Green" St. Paddy's Day Dinner and Dance
Join us on Saturday, March 14 from 6:30-10:00 p.m. for a family-friendly dinner and dance in Freeman Hall to mark the conclusion of this year's Celebrate Commitment Stewardship Campaign. The Follies Crew will entertain. Childcare provided. Online sign-up is required for anyone eating dinner (main course is two versions of Irish Stew, beef and vegetarian) or using childcare.
The New Website
Our new website should go live March 30. Website task group member Paul Turner is conducting usability testing between now and then and is looking for members and nonmembers to participate. Each session takes 45 to 60 minutes. Contact Paul Turner.
Donations for the AH-HA Social Justice Auction
The Social Justice auction, to be held on May 2nd, is now less than 10 weeks away! The committee is hard at work planning a special evening of fun, fundraising, and fellowship. Donations are coming in from members and businesses, but more are needed. Everyone has something they can offer, whether it’s a service like helping with yard work, a fun event or outing, or perhaps something you made. Be creative - think of what you’re good at or like doing, or something that others could use or enjoy. Also, ask friends, family and neighbors. When you’re at your favorite businesses, ask them to support the auction through the donation of materials goods or gift cards. Two letters with details about auction donations are available – one general letter and one specifically for businesses. There is also a donation form that must accompany every donation submission. To request those documents or for any other matters concerning the auction, please contact Craig Miller at or Trish Hevey.
Room In the Inn
Room in the Inn, an interfaith program sponsored by Urban Ministry, provides a warm bed and 3 meals each day from December through March for folks who would otherwise be out in the cold. We provide shelter for 9 adults each Sunday night. The simple goal of Urban Ministry’s Room in the Inn program is to keep homeless people from freezing on cold winter nights. If you would like to consider being one of the approximately 20 volunteers who make this shelter happen each week by setting up, driving, cooking, hosting, and/or cleaning, please email Rocky Hendrick.
