JOIN US FOR MOVIE NIGHT:
Spend the evening with friends as we come together for a movie at UUCC.
You can bring pillows and blankets, snuggle into the sanctuary, and enjoy a movie-theater style experience for FREE! There will be popcorn, snacks & drinks as usual, and games in the lobby for those who would prefer a different type of fun.
Feel free to contact Adena with questions & make sure to RSVP HERE so we can ensure that we have enough snacks!
Potluck Connection / Parent Circle
Join us on Wednesday, February 7th around (not our usual week) 6 pm. This is a monthly event that facilitates fellowship among the children, youth, and parents of our church community. Pizza and drinks are provided, and families bring a side dish to share. After dinner, children will head downstairs with Adena & Erin (we will also need one parent helper) for fun and games! Please make sure to RSVP via evite by 4 PM on 2/7 so that we can ensure to have the right amount of pizza!
For RE Teachers:
We will be discussing what makes teaching Religious Exploration a Spiritual Practice, what you can do to make it an even more spiritual experience for you, and more about the topic!
Plan to bring a lunch or snack and stay after the 2nd service for about an hour (we’ll start at 12:15pm). This event is open to anyone, but will be centered around application to UUCC Religious Exploration Classes.
Please RSVP here (especially if you will be needing childcare).
New to the Program?
If you have come about 3 or more times and you want your children to be a part of the Unitarian Universalist Community Church Religious Exploration Program, you need to (RE)GISTER! This will allow us to have the information we need about your family and child (including things such as allergies, learning styles, emergency contacts, etc.) It also explains your duties as a parent of a student in the program . CLICK HERE to register online!
DID YOU KNOW……
That the Religious Exploration Program needs 14 Adults EACH Sunday to run a full program?
This includes Nursery Staff, Trained Teachers and Trained Youth Advisors but also a VERY IMPORTANT group of “Teacher Assistant” Volunteers!
While each family that makes use of the RE program (Nursery through High School) is REQUIRED to volunteer in a classroom capacity roughly once per month, we strongly encourage those without children in the RE Program to help out as well, to help foster the children & youth’s sense of connection to the church as a whole. We need people starting THIS SUNDAY! Now is the time to Sign Up! CLICK HERE
Our RE Year Program
This year, UUCC is molding all aspects of the church around monthly themes that we are sourcing from a collective of churches called “Soul Matters”.
Many of our worship services will be based around the themes chosen by this collective as well as adult education small groups and aspects of the Religious Exploration program.
This is in an effort to have the entire church engaged in learning and living together at the same time. To learn more about what this means for RE specifically, (CLICK HERE).
