Setting Powerful Intentions
Rev. Hannah Roberts Villnave
Lots of us make resolutions for the new year, but do we keep them? Join us as we explore what it means to set powerful intentions for our lives.
Don’t Forget to Join Us
Cheyenne MLK Jr. March
Monday, January 15th, 2018
Cheyenne Depot Plaza
Honoring Martin Luther King Jr. means bringing people from diverse backgrounds together to build authentic bonds of human understanding and value.
The Cheyenne MLK Jr. March is more than a march. It is an opportunity to put Dr. King’s words and ideals into practice by inviting others from different races, religions or backgrounds to walk together and listen to not only one another — but the lived experiences and stories of Cheyenne’s African American/black community.
Are you ready to invite others to walk with you?

Membership Classes at UUCC!
The next class is Sunday January 21st!
Have you been thinking about becoming a member of our congregation? Are you interested in learning more about Unitarian Universalism or UUCC? Starting this month, we’ll be holding our new member classes on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month from 11:45 – 12:45 in the Library. On the first Sunday of the month, Rev. Hannah will lead us in an exploration of Unitarian Universalist history and identity. On the third Sunday, our Membership team will lead us through some history and identity of UUCC specifically. Newcomers and long-timers and everybody in between are welcome to attend!
Both classes will be required before joining UUCC, and there will be an opportunity to join the church on the 4th Sunday of every month! If you have any questions, please contact Rev. Hannah at email@example.com
SERVICE AUCTION DINNER
Last year you helped provide a wonderful potluck dinner for the Auction. Let’s do it again! We need stew, soups, or chili in crockpots, salads, and desserts. We need folks to help with setup and cleanup. And, since we don’t want this fabulous event to cost the church any money, we are asking for some donations to help pay the expenses. You will be able to sign up at church or contact Joe Corrigan at firstname.lastname@example.org or Sandi Gaulke at email@example.com

UU Regional Assembly
April 27-29, 2018
The four districts of the UUA’s Pacific Western Region will gather April 27-29 in Portland, OR for the 2018 Regional Assembly. Speakers include civil rights activist, the Rev. Dr. William Barber; Washington Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal, advocate for women’s, immigrant, civil, and human rights; and the Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray, newly elected UUA president. Programming includes workshops, worship, district meetings, and an optional social justice activity. A day-long Professional Day designed for religious professionals is planned for Friday, April 27, before the start of Regional Assembly. Discount lodging is available at the Portland DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, site of the Regional Assembly. Childcare and youth programming will be available. Registration will open by January 4. Watch the PWR website (www.uua.org/pwr) for full details to be posted soon.
We have posted signs up around the church a number of times but again we must stress the importance of NOT bringing any peanuts or foods with peanuts in them into the building at all. We have a member of our congregation that has a deathly allergy to peanuts and anything with peanuts in them. When this member discovers there are peanuts in the building, they have to leave immediately. This means that they miss out on our various activities or meetings that they need to be at. The allergy is critical and we DO NOT want to alienate this member or any others who have this allergy. PLEASE, PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD! that we cannot allow peanuts into the building. (If you are bringing in a packaged item, please try to check that it wasn’t manufactured in a facility that processes anything with peanuts.)
