In December we will collect socks, mittens, gloves, and scarves to donate.
We will post events happening in the community pertaining to immigration, environment and other Social Justice Issues. We are also looking forward to a new project, hosting “Help with Health Care Forums” where we will invite members and the community to learn about accessing health care. For any questions please contact Ana Schultz @ firstname.lastname@example.org
The December Worship Committee meeting is scheduled for Sunday, December 16th right after the service. Anyone interested in getting involved with worship panning is welcome and encouraged to attend!

Offering Our Plate (Living Generously)
Share the Plate recipient for December 16 and December 30: Holocaust Memorial Observance.
Anti-Semitic Incidents surged nearly 60% in 2017 from 2016. Because of this increase in hate, it is more important than ever that The Holocaust Memorial Observance be provided to our community. This week long annual event reminds us and teaches our youth about this horrific event that wiped out an entire generation of human beings throughout Europe. Your donations help bring and house a survivor to Greeley, provide books to youth, provide teacher education, pay for musicians, films, venues, brochures, advertising etc. It is the hope of the Holocaust Memorial Observances Committee of Greeley & Northern Colorado that the values these programs instill across the age spectrum, diverse religious groups, give members of our community the courage, where it might otherwise be lacking, to counteract hate, bigotry, and prejudice whenever and wherever they encounter it.
.**Now that the nomination process has begun, we hope members will consider making a nomination. Using our plate in this way will help us to grow of spiritual practice, live more meaningfully, and help heal our world. Look for the colorful box that Sharlene Meydel decorated in the Foyer to make your suggestion! (must meet criteria)
