Joining the choir is easier than ever. We now perform only the second and last Sundays of every month. Less of a commitment but still just as much fun and fulfillment.
Practices: Wednesday’s at 7:00pm
Second and last Sundays at 9:45am
All ages and musical experience welcomed!
Create new and lasting friendships, as we lend our voices to creating an exciting, uplifting and inspiring worship atmosphere here at UUCC.
Until Justice rolls down like water and righteousness like a mighty stream. ~ MLK
The observance of Martin Luther King Day is a chance to start the year off right by making an impact in our community. On Monday, January 18th, the annual march will begin at noon at the Depot, and the remembrance will be held in the Capitol.Then, a luncheon for all will follow at Allen Chapel AME Church at 917 W. 21st. UUCC has a long tradition of supplying desserts for this important event, and we are asking for your help once again. Please bring cookies, cakes, pies, brownies, etc. to the UUCC kitchen either on Sunday the 17th or by 10:30 AM on the 18th. Please mark them MLK. We will then transport them to Allen Chapel. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: What are you doing for others? Here is your chance to offer one answer. Share some goodies, march for justice, and eat lunch in fellowship.
DATE CHANGE: due to unforeseen changes in facilitators work schedules, Our Whole Lives sexuality education for 7th and 8th grades will begin the first Sunday in February, the 7th. Please sign up at clipboard corner or on the website.
Our church home is a resource not only for a lively and liberal spiritual
life, but also for a great amount of service to the community. Would you
consider making a special year-end gift to UUCC? A gift of $10, $25 or $100
would make a HUGE difference – AND it’s tax-deductible! Checks can be
mailed to 3005 Thomes Avenue, Cheyenne 82001 or click HERE to donate now!
The Church currently has a significant inventory in scrip which is redeemable at several local grocers. The idea is simple: The Church buys the scrip at a slight discount and when you buy it, the church gets that small profit (free money!) and our liquid cash flow improves. You then use the scrip at the participating grocer just as you would cash. Why wouldn’t we do this? As we enter the Holidays, food purchases tend to increase. Use scrip and you help the Church with each dollar you spend!

Your games, puzzles and other activities that are “so last year” may be just what our Faith Development classrooms need!
Donations will be accepted in designated buckets in the Rainbow room.
Please only gently used, fully functional donations. We’re looking for activities (puzzles, games, puppets etc.) not toys or stuffed animals. Thank you for helping our classrooms become interactive and fun learning stations!
REGISTRATION FOR THE Mountain Desert District MLK Conference is now open!
“This year, the MLK Summit will focus on Black Lives Matter. The Denver poet, Suzi Q, has written an amazing song with the help of NO Enemies (Flobots) promoting racial activism. The words go, “I am a sleeping giant, there lives a riot in my bones.” Suzi’s words are a call to action in the work against oppression. And, as a faith community, we are called to work for an end to the injustices faced by people of color in our communities, so that every person is treated equally and has a fair chance at life.”
Do not miss out on this wonderful opportunity! Register soon so we can coordinate rides. Contact Ms. Marcie if your are an adult interested in chaperoning this event.
Thanks to all our very generous members and friends, over 70 beautifully decorated and absolutely stuffed Christmas stockings and hats were delivered to East High School on Dec 16. From there they were donated to homeless children and youth in our community. This could not have happened without those who helped decorate the stockings and those who gave so many personal care items, snack foods and Christmas candy, socks, hats, gloves, underwear, and the cutest toys! Plus, we collected $580 in small gift cards that were given to the teenagers. In addition, we have distributed wonderful warm winter clothing to Comea Shelter, Wyoming Coalition for the Homeless, Family Promise, and Safehouse. Boxes of food donations have been given to families in need. There are not enough words of gratitude for the generous support of this project. You should all feel proud!
Has someone borrowed the new steam machine and the 8 foot extension cord that was locked in the craft closet? 🙁 . We are requesting it’s swift return.
Terry Kreuzer requests the return of her middle length green extension cord that lit the two tomato trees strung with lights for WinterMart that was left in the social hall/gym to offer some decoration that next Sunday, Dec 13th.
She went in on Monday, Dec 14th to take down trees but no cord.
She has looked in all her tote boxes as well all over the church & checked with Sharon about it.
If you know of its whereabouts, please contact Terry @ 214-3932
