We are pleased to welcome Rev. Elizabeth and we look forward to starting our time together, we will do all we can to help you comfortably settle into life at the UUCC.
Hello new friends and neighbors,
I am so pleased to have arrived in Cheyenne, found a house, and settled myself and my cat into our abode in preparation for beginning my work with you! This first week was a whirlwind of meeting with some of our leaders, beginning to plan and dream together, getting my feet on the ground and my passwords on the email. I’m so ready to get back into conversation with those I met during Candidate Week, meet those who I haven’t yet, and deepen my conversations with all of you as the year progresses.
This will be a year for creativity, experimentation, and getting to know one another as we begin our journey into new ministry. I hope you will come along on what we’re beginning to call our Year of YES! This means Y(our) Experimental Space, where we’ll try out new programming and formats, notice what we love and what we miss, and try not to hold too tightly to anything we’re doing, letting ourselves be informed by what is actually happening in the space and the feedback we’re getting from one another to find out what we might try next.
For our experiments to work though, we need YOU!
We’ll need you to try things out, and even take on leadership in one or two (but not all) of these new experiments that we are running. For example, have you always wanted to be involved in worship, but you’re not much for speaking in front of an audience? We’ll be doing ritual and activity-based worship some Sundays, so come talk to me, and let your artistic side be a part of the action! I’ll need folks to tell me directly when something is working great, or feels like a stretch, or really doesn’t work for you. Be in communication with our Shared Ministry team, the Board, and me!
I look forward to a year in which we are all becoming a part of our congregation’s growth and health.
With hope and delight,
Rev. Elizabeth

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.

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.

Upcoming Events
