This Week: Planting and Navigating

This Sunday all our programs for children and youth are in session. Our youngest children will be planting flower seeds as we talk about the things all living creatures need to grow. Our Quiet Heart class will learn skills for wilderness navigation. They will be all over the EUUC property, and possibly further, so please be sure your students are dressed for the weather, and that they have closed toed shoes on. 

OWL class meets from 11:00 to 12:15. 

High School Youth Group meets from 11:00 to 12:30 in the Loft. 

Teach In on White Supremacy April 30

On Sunday, April 30, instead of our usual activities, we will join with over 500 Unitarian Universalist Congregations around the country for an important action. The Teach In on White Supremacy is a response to a call from people of color and indigenous people within our faith tradition. The organizers have asked UUs to take one Sunday morning to address the issue of racial injustice and exclusion within our own faith tradition. Your EUUC Ministers and Board unanimously agreed to support this action. Please join us for this important work. Note: That Sunday is also our annual Flower Communion. Please bring flowers to share in our beloved ritual.

Volunteer with the EUUC Rummage Sale

The EUUC Rummage Sale is an annual fundraiser that supports our programs. We are still looking for a few volunteers to help pull this together.  This is a great way to meet other EUUC folks and support our community. We especially need strong people on Sunday, April 30 right after second service to put away chairs and get tables out for the sale.  The other time we really need help is on Saturday, May 6 at the end of the sale, from 4:00 - 5:30. Childcare will be provided during the Saturday afternoon work session, for children under 8. Older children are welcome to help with set up and take down. Email bpbaker@msn.com or stop by the rummage sale table on Sunday to sign up.

Teach World Religions Next Year!

Next fall and winter terms our grade school children will study world religions, and we are looking for several people to teach these curricula.  If you have a passion for multi-cultural learning, want to learn more yourself about Buddhist, Jewish and other religions, and enjoy young people, this is the volunteer gig for you!  For questions or to apply for a teaching team, contact Rev. Cecilia Kingman.
