Well, we got snowed out in October, but the Theological Walks with Rev. Norris will continue weather permitting. All are welcome to join Rev. Norris on monthly theological walks the fourth Monday of every month at 12:00 p.m. on site. The walks will be a combination of historical tour, Socratic dialogue, walking meditation, and community building. Each walk will be about an hour. The topic of the walk will take into account the route chosen. Contact Rev. Norris if you are interested or arrive at the church at 11:40 to join him before he leaves for the walk. In the month of November, Rev. Norris will lead a walk around and in the immediate vicinity of Montview Park. Those interested can have lunch together to continue the conversation.

Pathways to Meaning & Membership Class
This class is designed to go over some of the basic history of Unitarian Universalism. It also helps you to better understand our congregation and see how you my deepen your involvement. It also is a great opportunity to meet others who are new to our church as well, but also have an interest in becoming more involved. While it is not required for membership, I highly recommend that you participate in this class as a first step to considering membership. The class is offered about once every six weeks or so and taught by our minister, Reverend Aaron Norris. The class takes about 90 minutes and are at noon on select Sundays. The next class date is December 15th. If you're interested in attending, please RSVP to Rev. Aaron or follow this link.
Holiday Craft Day
December 14 from 1- 4pm
Craft Fair and Children's Craft Activities
Art activities, make ornaments, listen to holiday music, eat cookies. Parents will have time to leave to shop while children stay. We are looking for people who want to sell crafts at this event.
Everyone has done a great job of getting their materials for the faith flags that we want to display in our entry, but we’ve all been a little slow in bringing them back in. Rev. Norris’ flag looks a little lonely up there by itself. As the flags come back in, we intend to get them up and show what the community at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Greeley is all about. If you haven’t gotten your flag yet, contact Julie Miller or Michele Masters and they’ll arrange it. If you’ve got the material but haven’t brought it in, we want to see it! If you’re feeling a little intimidated by the whole artistic expression part, remember that Rev. Norris has some small stamps that you can use to make a flag without the need for much artistic skill; you’re welcome to use them after service!
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.
An order will be placed on November 10th for gift cards available through Scrip. A percentage of the cards is donated to our chruch with each purchase. There are order forms available on the bulletin board and additional possibilities are available at shopwithscrip.com.
