Building a Sanctuary Culture
Rev. Hannah Roberts Villnave

Faith Development Potluck
September 23, 2017 at 12:00 pm
at Cahill Park

If you have volunteered in the Faith Development program in any capacity during Ms. Marcie’s time as DLFD, you and your family are invited to the

FAITH DEVELOPMENT VOLUNTEER

A TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE

Bring a comfort food that invokes feelings of nostalgia and warmth. Home-style favorites like macaroni and cheese, chicken and dumplings, chili, mashed potatoes, meatloaf, apple pie and chocolate chip cookies.

Come for some family fun, volunteer appreciation, and a look back on all that we have accomplished together.


Lifespan Faith Development Registration

We know, we know, y’all are sick of school registrations, sign ups and general “back to” anythings. But it is that time again! Please update your Nursery-12th grade child’s registration for UUCC’s Faith Development. The easy online registration can be found following this link: UUCC DLFD Registration Form or you can go to the clipboard corner computer in the church lobby and click on registration.


After the Eclipse

If you still have your eclipse glasses, don’t throw them away just yet. The Wyoming Department of Transportation is partnering with the organization Astronomers without Borders in an effort to redistribute them.  Bring them in, and Laurie Magill will happily deliver them to WYDOT here in Cheyenne:

J O’Brien, a spokesman for WYDOT, said this was the most widely viewed eclipse in history, and many people used solar filter glasses to see it.
“We believe that somewhere in the neighborhood of 100 million of these glasses were distributed,” O’Brien said. “So obviously the first component would be we don’t want to see these in a landfill.”
WYDOT and Astronomers without Borders will donate the used glasses to areas in South America and Asia that will experience a total solar eclipse in 2019.
“A lot of these areas have very poor schools. They just don’t have science programs, or any sort of hands on scientific experimentation opportunities, so this is a really good opportunity to get those students some firsthand experience,” said O’Brien.

Look for the donation box in the social hall.  If you have any questions, please contact Laurie Magill at 307-630-4118.  Thanks in advance!


Minister’s Blog

Rev. Hannah has created a new blog post on the UUCC Website!

Click here to read the latest words and an IMPORTANT sanctuary update from our beloved new Minister.  You can also sign-up to be a Sanctuary volunteer.

You can find her page by going to www.uucheyenne.org then clicking on “Church News” for the drop down menu of “Minister’s Blog”.


Can you unlock the church? Got Keys??

Do you have a key to the church? Or other doors within the church? Please check in with Shelley!

If your key(s) have numbers on them, click here and provide the key number (if etched on it), what it opens and your name. You can also stop by the clipboard corner computer next time you are at the church and click on the form and simply enter your key # there.

If your keys are not etched, stop by to chat with Shelley so she can etch them. It’s helpful to let her know you are coming so she can be ready for you.

We are also happy to accept returns of keys, if you no longer find yourself needing it. You can put it in the box on the administrator’s door in an envelope with your name on it and what it opens.

We are trying to clear up our records and ensure we know who has access to the building. Thank you for helping us secure our beautiful building.

UUCC Spots on Public Radio. Please Help!

Working with public radio has been a very popular and I think effective way to get the word out about UUCC. This year I am hoping the spots will coincide with Rev. Hannah’s arrival.  The cost will be about the same as last year, $1,400, for 60 spots.  I think these are dollars well spent.  It brings new people in and I know our members like hearing UUCC spots on the radio.  Including in the spots that we are welcoming a new minister adds to the excitement.

Please help.  Some of us may even give the money we would normally give to the WPR membership campaign to the church instead, and these dollars go right back to WPR – doubling the impact.

Check should be made out to UUCC and mailed or dropped in the collection plate. Please put “public radio” in the memo line.

Thanks again, please let me know if you have any questions or comments.

peanut-allergyCHURCH NOTICE:

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.)
