What's happening at the UUCG?
Dec. 18th - Dec. 24th, 2018
UUCG has lost a family member. It is with a heavy heart that we share the news that our beloved Music Director, Sam Henline died December 15th, 2018. We are so fortunate to have had Sam share his gifts with us as a congregation as well as with the numerous organizations he served throughout the community. Someone once said, "Music is what feelings sound like." I think Sam knew that and I think he knew the power of music to reach something in all of us. He will be greatly missed.

Build Your Own Theology
Tuesday December 18th @ 6 p.m. at The Unitarian Universalist Church of Greeley.
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
Romy Miller has volunteered to be in charge of coffee on the off weeks when Rev. Aaron is not there. It would be appreciated if we could have a volunteer to bring cookies on Dec. 30th. Please email or call Dianne Culver at email@example.com or 970-378-7544 if you are available. Thanks in advance!
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)
