Lunch with TED
August 19, 2015 at UUCC Library Join us on the third Wednesday of each month for lunch and mental exercise! TED Talks are short presentations by some of the best thinkers in science, medicine, social issues and global innovation. Bring a lunch and join us in the UUCC library for the short 15 minute viewing and the engaging conversation and reflection that follows.

Bring your friendly/socialized pet for our annual Blessing of the Animals! This special Sunday we will be welcoming Black Dog Rescue, who will tell us about their great work on behalf of animals in need, and we will do our blessing time with our non-human friends! You are also welcome to bring a picture of a deceased pet and we will be creating a memorial altar to hold in mind all the love that we have shared with those pets we have lost. Don’t forget to walk your pet (and clean up any messes) before the service!
Be sure to mark your calendars now for our next Theology Pub, which will be Friday, August 21 from 7 pm – 8:30 pm at Jackson’s Bar and Grill. Our conversation will be on Ethics – How do we choose the right or the good? Participants are always welcome to bring short readings, a friend, or an empty belly! Conversation, great people and good food are all available at our Theology Pub conversation nights.
Please join us for this Sunday’s service !

Our new Religious Education for children and youth year will be kicking off soon, and we NEED YOUR CHILD REGISTERED! Because we ask for different permissions and information each year, you do need to be sure to fill out a new registration each year. September is our registration month, so grab a pen and be ready to get your kids REgistered!
Recently, Rev. Audette put out a little survey to assess community interest in various Adult Education classes we can do at UUCC. People did a great job responding, and the top three classes in which folk expressed interest were: 1st place: “Flunking Sainthood”: Spiritual Practice & Real Life 2nd place: Relationships & Spirituality (and due to the heavy interest in Adult OWL & Compassionate Communication, this will incorporate both) 3rd place: Philosophy of Religion through Film Keep an eye out for these classes in the coming year!
For those of you who were not able to make it to the Annual Congregational Meeting we have the new photo directories available if you would like one. We are distributing one per household. Please contact the church administrator for your copy. firstname.lastname@example.org or call 638-4554.
