spirit & relationsSpirituality & Relationship Class Rescheduled

After the congregation chose this as their preferred class, we scheduled sessions in the fall but did not get the minimum signup, so we’re rescheduling! A number of folks expressed interest and said they forgot to sign up, so here’s our second chance. This class will allow us to explore our relationships (friends, family, lovers) and how deepening our spiritual practices can enhance and transform them. Using principles of Compassionate Communication and including elements of Our Whole Lives adult sexuality education, this class asks that participants create a safe and healthy connection for the work, and thus we need to ask that participants make a serious commitment if they join the class.

This class will be 6 sessions over 3 months, March – May. We need a minimum of EIGHT people to sign up, who can commit to at least 5 of the 6 sessions. The class will be held on Sunday mornings from 9 am – 10:15 am on the following dates:

March 6 & 20

April 10 & 24

May 1 & 29

Mark your calendars now & SIGN UP HERE! We can make sure there is childcare, for a small donation of $10 per child for the series. SIGN UP FOR CHILDCARE NEEDS TO BE 2 WEEKS BEFORE THE FIRST SESSION (otherwise we won’t have enough time to make arrangements) If this cost represents a hardship to you, please be sure to speak to Rev. Audette.

Create new and lasting friendships, as we lend our voices to creating an exciting, uplifting and inspiring worship atmosphere here at UUCC.


paper goodsJanuary Giving/Help UUCC Save $1200

Dear UUCC family –

Did you know that UUCC spent $1200 last year on disposable paper goods? When the Board realized this, they knew they needed to take action! Although disposable paper goods are quite a convenience, they are not the most environmentally friendly option and not the best way for us to spend out limited funds!

As good stewards, we’d like to ask two things of you.

One: if you’re hosting a church-related event at UUCC, will you please consider using our plentiful supplies of dishes and silver? You’ll have to follow proper washing techniques, but it’s an Earth-friendly option!

Two: PLEASE DONATE A PACKAGE OF PAPER PLATES, CUPS, OR NAPKINS! If everyone chips in a package of paper plates, plastic cups, or napkins, we could spend $0 of our church budget and still be able to cover our need for disposables.

You can drop off paper products in the library, and we’ll stock our closet. If we get a good response, hopefully we can do this every January and save lots of money that should be spent on other things!


glass recyclingGlass Recycling Ends

We can no longer take glass for recycling. Please stop bringing it to church immediately. If you want to continue to recycle your glass, you can take it to the Fort Collins Rivendell recycling center on the corner of Prospect and Riverside behind the school (access it from Riverside).

 

 


joysI am happy for my nephew Dale Danley’s husband Michael Helquist.  His book Marie Equi Radical Politics and Outlaw Passions was recently published.

Please pray for my husband as his adoptive daughter was murdered within the past two weeks. She was only 24. Also, pray for all indigenous women who are missing, murdered, and denied.

Other Community Events


Medicaid--Medical---28295981Hello! As you know, medicaid expansion is very important to Democrats and will be a key feature of the 2016 Budget Session. It would help immensely if you could circulate this event information to your local Democrats, friends, coworkers, etc.

Medicaid expansion is a positive benefit to all of us in Wyoming. It will bring $268 million of our tax dollars back to the state, reduce our $200 million budget shortfall, and immediately benefit our state budget and local economies. I’m sharing talking points on expansion, on the budget impact, and refuting false claims for your reference and use.
Expansion is included in the budget and will be worked in the coming weeks by the JAC and that is our first hurdle. We’ll be sending action alerts encouraging folks to contact JAC members and would appreciate you forwarding them on to your membership when you see them. They’re being bombarded by anti-medicaid expansion messages.
The ESPC are also running a petition, which I shared previously and is available here:www.healthywyoming.org/petition. Please circulate among your allies and supporters so we can stay in touch directly about expansion.

Additionally, to build support and visibility we are holding public forums in targeted communities with key JAC members.

Cheyenne Medicaid Expansion Community Forum
WHEN: 1/12/16 from 6:30-7:30
WHERE: Laramie County Public Library, Cottonwood Room

oil & gasWyoming Oil & Gas lease sales 2016

Laramie UU and other groups are sponsoring demonstrations at upcoming BLM oil-and-gas leases under the  movement & banner, “Keep it in the Ground.” The first such dal is slated for February 2 in Cheyenne.

BLM sells these leases way too cheap. The leases fly into the face of the fed. government’s obligation to manage the land with appropriate stewardship.
