Calling all Altos and Sopranos! If you are interested in singing in EUUC’s treble ensemble, The Treblemakers want YOU! We rehearse on the first, third, and occasional fifth Thursdays of each month, beginning in August, and we’d love to have more voices in the ensemble. We especially need sopranos, but we’ll welcome everyone who can sing in the treble range of Alto and Soprano. We are also looking for instrumentalists who play Flute, Oboe, Djembe, Tambourine who can help us throughout the year. For more information, contact April Cook.

Conversations From the Heart

We will join together for a building and grounds cleanup to spruce up for the coming year. We will sweep, paint, clean windows, dust, and wipe counters, walls, and chairs. We will have inside and outside tasks for everyone who comes. And lunch will be served. Contact Vicki Roberts-Gassler or Craig Cyr if you have questions or ideas of tasks that need doing.

Interested in the idea of All Gender Bathrooms?  Come to a Congregational Conversation on August 25 following the Sunday morning Service.  Facilitated by our Committee on Ministry, you will have a chance to hear about the plans for refurbishing the bathrooms and making them accessible to all genders.  We will also discuss etiquette and concerns.
