Rev. Barry Bloom
What do the holidays stand for, now? In 2016? The birth of Jesus, the light of Hanukkah, the love and commitments of Kwanza, the lasting connection and love of family? Yes, and much more. Where is the holy in the midst of a record year for Amazon?

Grocery Certificate Volunteers Needed!
Due to a change in family life Rosemary Edmiston must relinquish her duties as a grocery certificate volunteer and Hollis Berendt wishes to spend more time with her family- thus it is time for a personnel change.
We are hopeful that several will volunteer creating a team of volunteers with a coordinator so that the duties will not fall on one or two people all of the time. The coordinator or at least one volunteer should have access to a computer.
The grocery certificate service provides added revenue for the church, and works closely with the UUCG Treasurer and Board.
Volunteers need to contact Rosemary, Hollis, Erika Coan or Reverend Barry Bloom.
How can I contact Rev. Barry Bloom? If you need to get into contact with Rev. Barry Bloom please email him at firstname.lastname@example.org or call him at 303-273-9908.
How can I contact our Board Members?
