Wednesday Evening Childcare
Sara Burlingame, the Director of Religious Education (DRE), will be offering childcare in the nursery from 5:30- 6:00 on Wednesdays before MusicMakers, our new children’s choir.She is offering this so parents can attend either yoga (social hall) or meditation (upstairs).Please let me know if you are interested, and I may look into getting another helper.Sara’s phone number is 638*4554.
Dust Off Your Instrument!
If you play (or have played in the past) an instrument, and would like to start playing again, we have an Instrumental Ensemble that meets on Wednesday nights from 8:00 – 9:00 in the sanctuary for rehearsal.
Even if you have forgotten how to play, come join us for a rehearsal to see what it is all about!
So far we have had a variety of instruments, including violin, cello, French horn, trumpet, trombone, tuba, euphonium, recorder, and keyboardists during the past month.
This is not an advanced performance group, but a place to get back “into the groove” of playing your instrument again.
We cover the fundamentals of music (rhythm, pitch, key, etc.) and of your particular instrument (embouchure, fingering, posture).
There will be no pressure to perform in front of anyone besides each other in the group, but if you find your talent taking off, we will work you and your instrument into the Sunday morning services from time to time!
Contact Charles Junkin (Charles@CapitolCounseling.net) if you have any questions.
Church Office will be closed
Friday, October 26 through Monday, October 28.

“What Moves Us: Unitarian Universalist Theology”
Nov. 14, 21, 28, & Dec. 5, 12 – 6:15pm – 7:30pm
All too often, even long-time Unitarian Universalists struggle to talk about our theological heritage. With a long and rich history, our faith tradition has been a beacon for liberal religionists through many ages.
Join Rev. Audette Wednesday nights in November and December, and discover our religious heritage through the stories of several of historical and contemporary Unitarians, Universalists, and Unitarian Universalists – and reflect on your own place in our ongoing story.
Nov. 14 – Hosea Ballou
Nov. 21 – William Ellery Channing
Nov. 28 – Sophia Lyon Fahs
Dec. 5 – James Luther Adams
Dec. 12 – the Rev. Dr. Thandeka
We are glad to provide childcare if you will let us know of your need at least a week in advance of the first session.
Dreamworking: a new Chalice Circle
Ever wonder what your dreams are trying to tell you?
If so, join Rev. Audette on Sunday, Dec. 9, at 12:15pm for the first monthly Dreamworking Chalice Circle.
We have space for ten in our circle.
Rev. Audette studied dreamwork under Dr. Jeremy Taylor, noted Dreamwork educator. His books include Dreamwork; Where People Fly and Water Runs Uphill; The Living Labyrinth; and The Wisdom of Your Dreams. Using Dr. Taylor’s methods, participants will have an opportunity to “work” their dreams within the context of an accepting community, while building new relationships.
This group will meet monthly on the second Sunday of each month through February, at which time we will see if any schedule change is needed. We will continue for six months and then discuss next steps.
If you would like to join, we ask that you make a serious commitment to being present at each chalice circle.
