Our culture breeds addiction, and far too often, the responses to social problems actually make them worse.  We are all affected by addiction in some way: either in our own habit energies, or the heartbreak of a loved one, friend, colleague.  Our highest aspirations in Unitarian Universalist congregations is to build the connection that heals, the connection that is real, that goes beyond the surface.  Join us to explore your own heart, and hear about an exciting new Unitarian Universalist response to self-destructive habits.

We still are looking for a volunteer or volunteers to assist in the sound booth on Sunday mornings.  Experience is not necessary: we will train you.

Hannah at minister@uucheyenne.org, or Tamra Mabe, our Administrator, at 638-4554 or by email at administrator@uucheyenne.org. Thanks!

Please join us Wednesday, June 24 through Sunday, June 28, 2020 in Providence, Rhode Island for this 5-day immersive experience themed Rooted, Inspired & Ready! Join your faith family at inspirational worship services, informative workshops and a bustling exhibit hall. We anticipate that 4,500+ UUs will gather for this unforgettable experience and leave with renewed energy and innovative ideas for congregational and community engagement.

NEW! Registration Payment Plan
Prefer smaller payments over a longer period of time? We’ve designed a payment plan just for you.

The UUA is committed to the goal of making GA accessible to as many attendees as possible. Go to uua.org/ga to learn about scholarships to support participation – particularly of those from marginalized groups – and volunteer opportunities (work in exchange for registration). The UUA is committed to addressing the inclusion of all people, whatever their abilities might be, in all GA activities. Beyond the physical accessibility of the facilities we use – ramps, captioning, seating cut-outs, etc.- we endeavor to take the next step: to truly welcome people with disabilities into every facet of GA.
