A Task Tree is needed. What is a Task Tree? It is a tree with leaves that has tasks that need to be done in the church. We have many jobs, some large and some small, that need to be done. People can select the task that they would like to do to help out our church family. Who would like to design this tree? We were thinking that the tree could be on one panel of the screen that surrounds the sound booth. If you would like to make the tree, please contact Hollis.
From our Soul Matters collaborative, we offer these resources on our monthly theme of Letting Go. Click HERE for the resources!
Social Change Ministry The Social Change Ministry will be meeting the first Tuesday of the month at 11:30. All are welcome. Please feel free to bring a bag lunch since we are meeting at lunchtime.
Partnership Information If you have any questions or thoughts about the partnership with Foothill and Greeley, we have a liaison group comprised of Karen Harder, board member from Foothills, all three ministers and Hollis Berendt, immediate past president of UUCG. Please contact Holllis with your comments, questions or thoughts. All information will be brought to the liaison meetings.
Do you provide support for a friend or loved one? Here is support for YOU! Many of us provide support for a friend or loved one or family member. We may not think of ourselves as a “caregiver,” and yet this support can impact many facets of our lives. In order to sustain this support, we need to seek out support for ourselves. This is what Powerful Tools for Caregivers is all about. These sessions begin October 8th at 9:30 – 11:30, running for 6 sessions, and facilitated by church members of Foothills Unitarian Church. Please contact Rev. Gretchen Haley firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or sign up here.
Our partnership with Foothills was recently featured as a part of the UUA’s Growing Unitarian Universalism blog. Click here to check it out!

Remember that Sprouts, Safeway and King Soopers are available every Sunday. Soon King Soopers cards will only be sold in increments of $25, because you can refill them with any amount you choose using check, cash or credit card and the church will receive 5% of your purchase. King Soopers is the only card that can be refilled at King Soopers customer service and the church receives 5% of the refill. Your treasurer, Bill Gotchey
