Unitarian Universalist

Church of Cheyenne

A community of refuge where all have equal worth and are invited into spiritual exploration as a foundation for: 

hope. compassionate service. action.

Waking Up to Change!

UUs typically take pride in a spiritual path that questions the way things are.  If that assessment requires changes to further live our values and principles, UUs will then take action to move ourselves and communities in that direction. So let us consider some of our own experiences of both embracing (hope) and resisting (fear) change. After saying goodbye to Hannah we are now preparing to welcome Rev. Elizabeth Mount.  Today you will be asked to consider some of your own “change” experiences and how to move forward with not only transitions here at UUCC, but also locally, in the world and maybe most importantly within ourselves

All are welcome!

Want to join us in person on Sunday?
We gather at 10 am for worship in our sanctuary at
3005 Thomes Avenue, and masks are optional.

Want to join us virtually for worship? We will gather on Zoom at 10:00 am for worship!
The Zoom invitation is pasted below.

Church Announcements

UUA 101 for Committee Members!
From Rhiannon Smith, Regional Administrator

Over the years, we’ve received questions from volunteers about the UUA – how it functions, what the organizational structure means, who does what, to whom should questions be directed, etc. We understand that having vital information about the UUA enables you to do your best work on the volunteer bodies you serve.

In this spirit, we’ll be hosting an orientation for committee members which will focus on the UUA as an organization/institution. At the end of the presentation, there will be ample opportunity to ask questions. This orientation will take place on Zoom on Wednesday, August 26th at 11am PT / 12pm MT / 1pm CT / 2pm ET and will be approximately 2 hours long.

Advance registration is required for this meeting. Please visit: https://uua.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJIvdeGgqj8iGdH0arRNK-joHWQAVezeOwZJ (After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.)

**This meeting will be recorded so if you’re unable to attend, please let us know and we will see that you receive a link to the recorded video.

Juntos is calling for voices!
In an effort to make representation on the LCSD#1 School Board more equitable to all areas of Cheyenne, Juntos has a proposal before the Board requesting that the members consist of both at-large and Triad representation (South, East, Central) in order to better represent the diversity of Cheyenne.  

“The resolution has been put to a 45-day review, and we need all of you to submit a comment in favor of giving South Cheyenne true and equitable representation.”  Antonio Serrano of Juntos

Now is the time to voice your support of the Resident Area Resolution. 

Please send comments by email to the superintendent’s office at boyd.brown@laramie1.org or Darlene.davis@laramie1 or the board chair marguerite.herman@laramie1.org

Mail written comments to the superintendent at LCSD#1 Administration Building, 2810 House Ave., Cheyenne, WY, 82001. Please put a note on the envelope indicating it’s a comment on the Resident Area Resolution.

New UUCC Ministry!
Adopting a Segment of Crow Creek for Cleanup

New UUCC Ministry!
Adoption of a Segment of Crow Creek for Cleanup

UUCC has adopted for cleanup the segment of Crow Creek that runs through Martin Luther King Park between 19th St. and Lincolnway and Missile Drive and Dey Ave.  Our next cleanup is scheduled for Sunday, June 28 at 7:00 p.m.  We meet in the parking lot south of the softball field off of Ames, near the Habitat Restore.  We generally work just over an hour and fill one large trash bag per person.

Participants are encouraged to wear long pants and long sleeved shirts (the vegetation is knee high and can be pokey) and suitable shoes (Mike and Kathy wear muck boots, but there is plenty of cleanup that does not involve getting wet).  A tool of some sort, such as a hoe or pitchfork, is helpful for snagging trash in the creek.

The city of Cheyenne requires all of those who participate in the cleanup to sign an Assumption of Risk, Waiver & Release form.  Folks are not allowed to participate unless they sign the form.  Mike and Kathy will bring forms for those who wish to participate to the cleanup location on the scheduled date.  Mike and Kathy will also provide trash bags to all participants.

Kids under 14 years of age must be accompanied and supervised by an adult.

Community Events

Family Promise Virtual Box City:
A Night Without a Bed, Evening of September 26th
Our purpose is to build awareness of Family Homelessness by having families build a shelter of their own to sleep in.
In the past, we have built cardboard shelters at the depot and camped outside, this year we are happy to host our first virtual event on Facebook or by word of mouth with friends. Participants will build a fort at their own location, and share their wonderful creations via our Facebook page, where we will also host also a live event. Not only is this a fun family event, but it also provides Family Promise an opportunity to gather funds to help families of our community in need.
This is a save the date for 9/26/2020

Important! Please Read!

We have been experiencing a growing issue with peanut residue in the building, especially in the library.  Please, do not bring peanut products into the building, and if your little ones enjoy their peanut butter snacks before coming, please be sure their hands are clean before they touch surfaces used by everyone.  We are seeing almost daily allergic reactions, so we ask you to please be diligent. It may be an inconvenience to you, but it can be life-threatening to those who are allergic.
