As many of you know, Gayle Roberts fell on the stairs here at UUCC on Sunday morning. She had a broken hip, which required brief surgery to repair. Gayle is on the road to healing and open to visitors (especially if they bring Scrabble) in room 4216 at Cheyenne Regional Medical Center. However, please call ahead as she will likely be moving to a rehab facility in the near future.

This service which marks the beginning of the New Year has been celebrated off and on at UUCC since about 1991.

Bring your own personal item to be cleansed and blessed.
Everyone is also invited to help present the service. Please contact Gene Heater at firstname.lastname@example.org or 421-5098 by voice or text if you would like to be involved.

Honest, accurate information about sexuality changes lives. It dismantles stereotypes and assumptions, builds self-acceptance and self-esteem, fosters healthy relationships, improves decision making, and has the potential to save lives. For these reasons and more, we are proud to offer Our Whole Lives (OWL), a comprehensive, lifespan sexuality education curricula for use in both secular settings and faith communities.
Our Whole Lives helps participants make informed and responsible decisions about their sexual health and behavior. With a holistic approach, Our Whole Lives provides accurate, developmentally appropriate information about a range of topics, including relationships, gender identity, sexual orientation, sexual health, and cultural influences on sexuality.
UUCC plans to offer 3 levels of OWL in the SPRING 2019. The levels include grades 4-6, grades 7-9 and grades 10-12. We need to know who’s interested and get an accurate headcount to continue our planning efforts. Register here!!!
