paper-clipStaff Summer Hours

Over the summer, Rev. Audette and Ms. Marcie will amend their schedules to by-appointment. Due to the demands of children’s summer schedules, if you’d like to meet with either of them, please be in touch to schedule an appointment. Both continue to be available and reachable quickly by phone or email.

Rev. Audette will be traveling back East from June 23 – July 4th weekend. Ms. Marcie will be  traveling to see family July 2-7 and will share any other travel plans as they arise.

The hours the church office is open continue as usual during the summer – 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Please be aware that although our administrator, Shelley, works more hours than when the church office is open, she must have closed-office hours in order to accomplish the generous amount of financial and other paperwork and design/communication that constitutes the bulk of her responsibilities. Shelley’s time away from the office will also be posted with advance notice

chaliceThink You Know UU?

5:30 – 7 pm, Wednesdays in August (Aug. 5, 12, 19 & 26)

UUs are a little notorious for not knowing our own religious history. Want to be sure to know what to tell your neighbor or Cousin Eddie when they ask about UUism? Then join us Wednesday evenings in August for this class which will cover both epochs and some individuals in our long Unitarian and Universalist histories. This class is terrific for folks who are new to UU, but even better for those who have been UU for a long time but can’t explain Transcendalism or who don’t know Thomas Jefferson’s opinions about Unitarianism. Here’s a pop quiz. If you can’t answer all of these questions, JOIN US!

  1. Who brought Unitarianism to the US, and from where did it come?
  2. What is the origin of our flaming chalice?
  3. Where was the first edict of religious tolerance signed, and who created it? (And how does it relate to UUism and Rev. Audette’s ministry? For bonus points)

This class should give participants a good general beginning overview, and will offer resources for further exploration. Additionally, it will be an enjoyable time with other UUs.

If interested, please be sure to sign up ahead of time – we need a minimum of 6 committed participants – and indicate if you need childcare.

Pastoral Care Thank You
Day-of-Mourn-01

Love, care, concern, and help for the family of Bob Means were all shared at UUCC the previous Sunday during his memorial service and reception.  For all those who offered beautiful words, lovely decorations, delicious food and the valuable work of setting up and cleaning up, we offer gratitude and blessings.  You truly are a generous, loving group of people.  Thank you!

photo directory coverUUCC Photo Directory

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. administrator@uucheyenne.org or call 638-4554.

Post-Office-Hours-Limited-On-April-15UUCC Post Office Box is no longer in effect

Please note that all mail going to the UUCC and being collected for UUCC should now be addressed to our street address at 3005 Thomes Ave. Cheyenne, WY 82001.

We have submitted a forwarding address with the post office and our vendors and  we will still be able to collect any mail still being addressed to the PO Box for at least 6 months but it would be helpful if everyone spread the word about this and reinforced this with everyone so that there will be no hold up in the mail for it to be re-routed to our street address. 

Plant Watering at UUCC

Many of you may not be aware but the plants throughout the church are being watered every Friday by Lynne Weidel. She did take over the care of them for Ilse Sorenson. We are concerned that there are other people watering the plants also which could be hurting them and making them wilt. Over watering can cause the same effect as underwatering so we are asking everyone to please not water the plants. We understand that when you do this you are doing it out of love but we don’t want to over love the plants either :)

OWL (Our Whole Lives)

OWLUUCC would like to eventually offer an OWL education for our entire congregation. But for our first session we would like to focus on the age group that would most widely benefit from the program. If you would be interested in your child or yourself attending an OWL Education program, please provide the participants name(s) and age(s), as well as the guardian’s (if applicable) name and contact information on the sign up sheet at clipboard corner.
