What's happening at the UUCG?
Sept. 6th - Sept. 12th, 2017
A Note From Rev. Barry
I am so frustrated that I am once again kept from being with you because of a health problem. I have eye surgery on my left eye today. I am hoping there will be a rapid enough recovery that all will be well come the 17th of Sept when we have our celebration (delayed) of the beginning of our new church year. I asked a trusted medical advisor what is going on with me that all of these parts of me are breaking down. She said, besides getting old you mean? I can’t apologize for getting older but I can certainly empathize with any of you who may be feeling frustrated at my frequent health related absences. I look forward to being with you soon. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Rev Barry Bloom
Wednesday Sept. 6th- Choir Practice 7pm at the UUCG.
Sunday Sept 10- "Resilience - Knowing How to Adjust Our Sail" - Julie Miller
We will examine resiliency, not only as a personal strength, but also how it can come from being in community. with others.
Tuesday Sept. 12th - Spiritual Stimulation & Support Group
Our 2nd & 4th Tuesday evenings Spiritual Stimulation and Support Group will meet from 7:00 to 8:00pm in the church sanctuary for sharing and caring. Each night is a stand-alone event where anyone is welcome to join, even if you are only available for the one single evening. Each group is different depending on who shows up, and their needs for stimulation and/or support. We strive to honor one an-others life path, experiences, and perspectives. We share from the heart, and open ourselves to listen fully to one another with compassion. What is shared in the group, stays in the group. This Month’s Theme is Humanism. Please contact facilitator Josette Schaffer at firstname.lastname@example.org or Kathy Vaughn at 970-371-1522 for more information.

Coffee Hour Volunteers Needed: 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 for info.
Be a Greeter on Sunday Morning
Please share your smiling faces to greet on Sunday mornings. All you need to do is arrive at 9:40 and:
1. Say, "Good morning. Here is an order of service"
2. Hand out an order of service.
3. Remind the person to put on their name tag. (Another volunteer will be at the Newcomers Cafe to talk with visitors.)
4. About 10 minutes after the service begins, do a head-count and give the number to the worship associate.
Please contact Hollis at email@example.com, if you'd like to help. Thank You!
