Gatherings and Events

Microagression Training with Aisha Hauser

Saturday, February 23 from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in Chapman Hall

The building will be opened at 8:30 a.m.  Come have a cup of coffee and a chat.

The Racial Justice Committee is excited to have Aisha Hauser return to engage us in her follow up to the Bystander training she moderated at EUUC awhile back.

Aisha says – Microagressions:  Learning what they are and how to minimize their harmful impact is one way toward the Beloved Community we Unitarian Universalists envision as part of a whole faith community. Our interpersonal exchanges are filled with micro and macroaggressions within the strong overlay of institutional racism. Our faith calls us to be attentive, culturally competent communicators. This workshop will examine what microagressions are and when they need to be addressed. Be sure to check our website for possible closures of the EUUC premises and/or a different venue for this important training session.

Collecting your pledges

Sunday, February 24

On Sunday, February 24th, we will have our first opportunity since the snow to bring our written pledges of financial support for the coming year to Sunday service. Please remember to bring your written pledge with you and give it to Rachel Maxwell after the services.

UU 102

Sunday, February 24, from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. in The Friarplace

UU 102, the second of two classes for adults interested in learning more about Unitarian Universalism and our congregation, will begin after the second service. (It was rescheduled to this date due to snow.) Lunch will be served and childcare will be provided with advanced notice. UU 102 focuses on EUUC: our history, governance, mission and vision, as well as the many activities that help us connect with one another, have fun, and contribute to making the world a better place. You can sign up by contacting Nancy Gladow or Lynn Carpenter, calling the church office, or online. Prior completion of UU101 is required for this class.

Chocolate Sunday has moved to March 3

Sunday, March 3 after the 9 and 11 a.m. services in the Narthex

Please join us for Chocolate Sunday, an annual event where we indulge in a chocolate smorgasbord after each service. Everyone is invited to bring a favorite chocolate treat to share; we will engage in reckless abandon together. As author Michael Levine writes, “Chemically speaking, chocolate really is the world’s perfect food.” This year Chocolate Sunday is hosted by your Board of Trustees.

The Lobby Room

Sundays, through March 31
After early service in room 4; After late service in room 1

What a great beginning for the opening day of the Lobby Room. We had 16 “lobbyists” and over 26 cards. We will help you find out who your legislators are and let you know what is happening on important bills. Young people are welcome; they can make their own postcards or color the backs of others. This is a fun and easy way to give voice to your Unitarian Universalist values.

Beginner and Intermediate Level International Folk Dancing

Tuesdays, through March 26 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in Chapman Hall

International Folk Dancing begins with simple low impact walking steps accessible to all ages and abilities. Join us in line and circle dances of many cultures. No partner needed. Authentic Greek, Balkan, Israeli and other line and circle dances from around the world will be taught.  Leaders are Vicki Curry and Lora Hein.  Contact Vicki or Lora with questions.

Save the date

You’ve Come a Long Way…Maybe!

Please join Advocates for Women on Sunday, March 10 at 12:30 p.m. while we explore the myth of gender equity in America. Contact Advocates for Women for more details.

They can be local, national or international organizations. Nomination forms can be found online at the EUUC website, on a clipboard at the Social Justice bulletin board or in the Sunday Offering mail box near the office. We hope to hear from you.

EUUC voicemail is working again

We had problems over the snow/ice closure periods with our telephone voicemail service, but once the problem was discovered, our carrier quickly put it back in order.  Unfortunately, the work they performed before we called them may have erased some of your messages to us.  If you left a message and we have not called you back, please do get in touch again.

Two ways to give to EUUC electronically

  1. EUUC’s text-to-give number is 425-970-9289.  Simply key in that number to your phone, and respond to the prompts to enter the amount you would like to donate, and you will be taken to a simple form to fill out to finish donating.
  2. Use your QR scanner on your cell phone to be taken to an EUUC donation page.  See your Sunday Order of Service for the QR code.
