Not sure what Circle Dinners are? The original structure was that interested church members (and their families) would meet in groups of 6-10 people, either at someone’s home or a specified location (such as the church), once a month to socialize. The mission of this ministry was to get to know others in a more intentional and intimate way, to learn about each other and find common ground in order to strengthen our community.

Generally, the host would provide the main dish and non-alcoholic beverages, and the guests would bring side dishes, desserts, and other beverages, if so desired and agreed on. Hosting would rotate through the group, so everyone had the opportunity to host. 

Luanne Gearheart is heading this information gathering, so if you are not inclined to do an online survey, please feel free to contact her with your feedback on this topic! Her email is, or you can call 307- 630- 3763. 

BTW the survey is very short, really it’s just one question. It’ll only take a moment.  Thank you!!

Dear Members, Friends, and Guests,

Thank you, everyone of you, for all you did to make this year’s Service Auction a HUGE success.  It is always warmly overwhelming to me to see how many of us truly love this church and work hard to make a giant event like the Service Auction take place in awesome form.

If your donated items to the Service Auction did not sell, and you want them back, Joe will be at church this Sunday and help get them back to you.  If Sunday is not convenient just call him at 630-6192 to arrange a convenient time to meet.
Thanks again,                 

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

These are real stories that happened here in Wyoming. We will be turning these letters into videos that we will use to make at least 3 call to action videos. These calls to action will support the Immigrants rights campaign and the work happening here in Wyoming.

If you have been unsure how you can be part of the proactive fight for immigrant justice in Wyoming this is your chance. At this event, you will also be able to learn about all the things the ACLU of Wyoming and Juntos are working on.

If you would like to take part in this video project or for more info please reach out to Antonio Serrano at (307)256-4059 /, and he will provide you with the scripts you will need to review.

Snack and refreshments will be provided.

The UUA is committed to the goal of making GA accessible to as many attendees as possible. Go to to learn about scholarships to support participation – particularly of those from marginalized groups – and volunteer opportunities (work in exchange for registration). The UUA is committed to addressing the inclusion of all people, whatever their abilities might be, in all GA activities. Beyond the physical accessibility of the facilities we use – ramps, captioning, seating cut-outs, etc.- we endeavor to take the next step: to truly welcome people with disabilities into every facet of GA.
