Sunday, September 23rd- “Hush! Somebody’s Callin’ My Name!”
Rev. Aaron Norris
A call is a difficult ask made by something greater than ourselves that compels us to live beyond who we originally thought we were. Rev. Norris explores why calls are unpleasant, easy to ignore, and yet vital to hear and answer, again and again. He’ll ask the questions: What are you called to? What are we called together to?

Build Your Own Theology (a UU way to do Adult Education)
Rev. Norris will be teaching every Tuesday for ten weeks starting October 2 at 6:00. Everyone over 16 and over is welcome. Please signup by sending an email to Rev. Norris at firstname.lastname@example.org to save your spot.
“Based on the assumption that everyone is their own theologian, this classic UU adult education program invites participants to develop their own personal credos, the fundamental religious beliefs, values, and convictions that inform and direct of their lives. [The sessions] pose five developmental tasks in which participants come to terms with human nature, ultimate reality, history, ethics and religious meaning. Begins with an introduction to our seven UU principles.” -Rev. Dr. Richard S. Gilbert, Course Author”.
Other News and Reminders
The Immigration and Refugee Center of Northern Colorado (IRCNOCO) is hosting an event on September 29th at Centennial Village Museum. The event, "Spotlight: Burma," is a refugee resettlement simulation whereby participants learn about the stories of displacement from Burma and the journeys to the United States undertaken by real survivors. Participants learn these stories through (safely) reenacting those stories themselves. Tickets for the event are available for purchase on our website here.https://www.ircnoco.org/awits2018
If you are interested in being involved in worship planning, or have ideas you’d like to share about upcoming services, please join us for our next committee meeting on Sunday, October 21st immediately following the service. We’d love to have you join us!
Each Sunday, we are fortunate to have 1-2 volunteers bring/serve treats for coffee hour after the service. We are in dire need of volunteers to help us staff this time. Even 1 Sunday per quarter (every 3 months) is a major contribution. Training is provided and you will get to use our new coffee maker!!! It’s a great opportunity to meet congregants and interact with the UUCG community. Contact Diane Culver 970-378-7544
Coffee Hour Changes
We are very fortunate to have had a great number of volunteers in the past who have offered their time and support to our coffee hour. Unfortunately, going forward due to the lack of volunteers, we will be limiting the coffee hour to the Sundays that Reverend Norris is speaking. We can fill more volunteer spots on coffee days as the demand increases. Thank you all for your donations of food and time.
Be a Greeter on Sunday Morning
Do you want to smile and welcome people to our welcoming church? If so, we need greeters. Your commitment would be three Sundays through December. Please contact Josette at 970-381-7891, or email@example.com.
We are in need of a new copier for the church office, as our old one just isn't able to be repaired anymore. It's done a fine job, but we are beginning to have some problems, as the serviceable parts have become obsolete. We use our copy machine for Orders of Service, The Monthly Newsletter among other needs. We thank you in advance if you can help!
