This Sunday we will celebrate our annual Flower Communion.
“The Flower Ceremony, sometimes referred to as Flower Communion or Flower Festival, is an annual ritual that celebrates beauty, human uniqueness, diversity, and community.” UUA.org
Please bring a flower of your choice from home, your garden, or the roadside. We will place our flowers on the altar in a large vase and bless them during the service
“By exchanging flowers, we show our willingness to walk together in our Search for truth, disregarding all that might divide us. Each person takes home a flower brought by someone else – thus symbolizing our shared celebration in community. This communion of sharing is essential to a free people of a free religion.” UUA.org
Monday, July 9th from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm

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 firstname.lastname@example.org

The Garden Fundraiser raised $755!! Everybody that contributed plants and garden goodies just increased local food production in Cheyenne , re-used materials and equipment that didn’t end up at the landfill and supported our amazing UUCC! It was a pleasure setting up and breaking down and talking to the community (larger and smaller) about gardening. Anything that was left will be put out on front yard for the UUCC Garage Sale on Saturday.
Thanks everyone! We are off to a very productive start, now all of you need to do whatever it is that you do to appease the Hail Gods!!
It is time to register for QUUEst (upcoming 9th-12 graders) and Spirit QUUest (Upcoming 6th-8th graders). Camps are July 1-7, 2018 in Colorado Springs.

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.)
