Join us for Sunday Service

November 18th at 10:30 AM.

Join us for worship this Sunday morning as we celebrate the recipes (whether for friendship, sweet potato pie, or anything in between) we’ve inherited and how we bring them to our community here at UUCC! We’ll share song, story, ritual, and reflection as we celebrate together. All are welcome!

Upcoming Events

UUCC High School Youth Group is asking for your help in collecting food items for students in junior and senior high school in Cheyenne to make sure everyone has food over the Thanksgiving break.

Items requested include: mac&cheese, ramen noodles, applesauce, chips, spaghetti o’s, soup, crackers, and any other items loved by teens.

Please bring the items to UUCC (3005 Thomes Avenue, Cheyenne, Wyoming) to help us, help kids in our schools, and in our community.

Celebrate their coming baby with Rev. Hannah and Catherine! A baby shower will be held This Sunday, November 18, after the service, concurrently with the Church’s Thanksgiving Dinner. If you are wondering what Rev. Hannah and Catherine would like to have, please check their registry.

Committee on Shared Ministry is excited to bring back Share the Plate to the UUCC congregation. We started Sept 16 with a survey that 28 people have returned. Our goal as a group is to get input from as many of you as we can. Currently, our Members and Friends list is nearly 160 long so we have some work to do.  Extra Surveys are in the lobby, so if you did not turn one in, please do and we will continue to add your information to the collective list. Expect to hear from one of the 5 members of COSM before our deadline of November 15 if we have not received survey results from you. The goal is to choose the 12 organizations that we have made a commitment to with our volunteer time or donations that reflect the UUCC principles and align with our mission as a congregation for a MONTH LONG Share the Plate experience with leaders from the organization and people directly impacted by the group sharing and making connections with the UUCC congregation. If you have any questions, feel free to talk with any members of the COSM: Carol Bowles, Jack Runnels, Berth Bikulcs, Kesslee Stewart and Birgitt Paul.

Join together with the trans community, our families and allies to remember and honor the transgender lives lost to violence, in particular, the trans women of color who we’ve lost this year.

This event will take place Tuesday November 20th from 7:00–9:00 PM at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Cheyenne.

Spring OWL Registration

OUR WHOLE LIVES: LIFESPAN SEXUALITY EDUCATION

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!!!

CHURCH 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 attend. 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.)
