RE:Play Sunday, No Relgious Education
Other News and Reminders
Calling all Santas!
Your UUCG RE has a holiday wish list.
While we wish for peace and love for all throughout the holiday season and the New Year, we also have a short and sweet (and practical) wish list for our Religious Education program. We are looking for:
- A small, short table. This could be an official kids' table or a regular table whose legs have been or can be modified.
- A baby gate for our child care room.
- A "Pack and Play" style playpen.
If you have a question, donation, or an RE conversation, please contact Shelley Gotchey.
Guest at Your Table Continues...
Early January 2016 will be the time for gathering in your contributions for UUSC's Guest at Your Table project. I hope you have enjoyed getting acquainted with the people around the world that UUSC helps and the programs they run to do that. I have always been fascinated by the story of how UUSC got started before World War II and how they had designed the flaming chalice image using it to "light the way for refugees" fleeing Nazism. We are uniquely honored this year, the 75th anniversary of UUSC's founding, to have two of our "guests" be direct beneficiaries of their help. These two as children were part of a 1940 transport from Vichy France via Lisbon Portugal to safety and a new life in America. Their story is in the brochure.
So, in the first few weeks of January 2016 we will gather in the money you have collected and send them in to the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee helping them with their continuing work for human rights and social justice. Don't let the light go out! Keep the chalice burning!

Place a Service Snowflake on the Task Tree

If there is something you'd like to do, but don't see that particular task, please write your name and the task that you would like to share. We thank you for your gifts of your time. We cannot run the church with out you.
