What's happening at the UUCG?
Nov. 20th - Nov. 26th, 2018
A Scrip Order will be placed on December 2nd, with the cards returning by December 9th! This is a great way to buy gift cards as stocking stuffers or reorder some Sprouts cards. The order forms are on the bulletin board. Please return checks and order forms to Josette on December 2nd. The last order brought in over $30.00 for our congregation (and that was only three people ordering)! Also, King Soopers and Safeway cards can be purchased on December 2nd. If you have any questions please email Josette firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
We would like to thank you for the non perishable food donations made in November. We will continue the Bare Necessities Project. 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. If you have any Questions please email Ana Schultz @ email@example.com.
Sunday, Nov. 25th.2018- "Stone Soup" - Rev. Aaron Norris
We kick off the rush into the holiday season with a tale of magic hidden the mundane. The Sunday following Thanksgiving, all ages are invited to participate in a worship performance of the traditional story of the Stone Soup: a story about having just a bit more than you thought and the miracle of sharing.

Holiday Decorating Party
Please join us following services on November 25th for our Holiday Decorating Party! We will put up some of our traditional holiday decorations and some new ones as well that have been donated by Dannelle Beauvais and her family. We hope to see you there!
Worship is central to what we as a faith community do. Regardless of what other contributions we make during the week to this Beloved Community, once a week we gather together as a whole and share powerful experience. There events do not happen without a tremendous amount of planning, collaboration and thoughtful exploration. You can bring your unique talents to this community and help us all with this important project. The Worship Committee is seeking additional members! If you are interested in becoming involved in worship planning this year, please contact Brian or Shelly Gaza (firstname.lastname@example.org / email@example.com ).Thank you! NEXT MEETING: SUNDAY, November 25, 2018
