Faith Flags Growing
Please take the time to peruse our Faith Flags Notebook located near the name tags on the credenza. Take time to read the story behind each faith flag - it's creator and the meaning behind the flag. We have several in the works, so please do consider adding to our collection when you are ready. We will be occasionally featuring one of our faith flags on our Facebook Page, as well. So far, we have had people of all ages contribute to our work in progress, as well as contributors from out of state. We have had people utilize t-shirts, quilting, and a variety of materials to create their flags. Remember, it's about you and our faiths are just as unique as all of us. We do have material and painting kits available at the church, if you would like to utilize them. The kits can be lent out for two weeks at a time and we have 2 currently available (thank you, Julie Miller for the donation) otherwise, please feel free to create your own. If you are mailing it to us, please do include your name, age, and what the creation means to you. This will be posted in our notebook for future reference and years to come. I have included a Faith Flag photo from Adele DelSavio, who now resides in Florida. She moved to Florida and left UUCG to help care for her young grandchildren, whose father Todd, eventually died from a battle with cancer. She is greatly missed, but keeps tabs on us through Facebook, as many friends do. Our flags are all about us and our faith community and all who have been a part of our history are welcome to contribute to the project. Take time to look at them and read about their meanings in the Faith Flag Notebook each Sunday.
Please bring non perishable foods to church to distribute to the Weld Food Bank. Most needed items are peanut butter, tuna fish, beans, pasta, rice, canned fruits and vegetables. Please do not donate expired cans or boxes as they will be thrown out.
