A congregation member received several texts today claiming to be from Rev. Villnave, asking him to buy an Ebay gift card in the amount of $400.  If you receive a text like this, ignore it and block the number if you can. Thank you!

Please remember, Rev. Villnave will never ask you to buy Ebay giftcards (or any other card for that matter). 

If you aren’t sure about a communication that seems to come from Rev. Villnave, myself, or anyone claiming to be staff at UU Cheyenne, please feel free to reach out our office at administrator@uucheyenne.

Faith Development Highlights –

No Classes this Sunday! Join us for the Living Generously Celebration in the Social Hall!


Please enroll your youth in the Faith Development Program if have not already done so. Registration only takes a few minutes:

Help – Faith Development is looking for a few amazing youth and adults to help in our Sunday programming. Various options are available. Please speak with Mary, our Faith Development Director, if you’re able to assist during 2nd hour classes.

Our Wiggle Space is provided by UUCC’s Faith Development Team and can be found in the front of the sanctuary, to the left of the altar.  Please encourage your wiggler to quietly explore the items on the selves during service. Children may sit on the rug and play, bring an item back to the pew to use with their caregiver, or use the small table for coloring/writing. Please, stay close by your child (first few pew rows on the left side) so you’re more able to help your child if the need arises. Hand sanitizer and tissues are provided for your convenience. Please contact Mary Scherden DFD, for assistance with our Wiggle Space. 
 Don’t forget to return the pencil bag, with all the items inside, back to the basket for use again next week.

!!!!!CHOKING HAZARD – Pencil bags are better suited for older youth (8) to adult. Please use care when using the items inside.!!!!!

  • If you would like your submission to run more than one week, please include that in your email.

Thank you!
Our first meeting will be Sunday March 15th at 12:30 in the library.

We look forward to seeing you there!
A Note From Carol Bowles:
We are now collecting names of those interested and times you are available in the next month or so. I would highly encourage anyone who has not had this training in the last few years to attend and see how you can best serve these families while interacting with them!
Please email Carol at, or contact Family Promise of Cheyenne at 307-772-8770.

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!!

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.

Topics for March
March 5: Climate Change and the Global Order
March 26: India and Pakistan
Location: First Unitarian Church of Denver 1400 N Lafayette St, Denver, CO 80218

As part of our faith journey as Unitarian Universalists, we are regularly challenged by the ways race and racism affect our lives and our spirituality. Within our congregations, we are creating space to build a community of care among UU People of Color, opportunities to explore deeper questions around race, culture and our religious values.

We invite UU People of Color in the Greater Denver area to gather for dinner and a facilitated meeting. We will have worship led by local UU Religious Professionals of Color. Our goal is to nurture new relationships between UU People of Color in the area, discuss some of the historical development of UU People of Color and anti-racism efforts, and learn more about what the community needs and interests are among those who attend. We will share a new working timeline chronicling the major milestones and development of UU People of Color ministries as a background to address local opportunities and challenges.

Please RSVP with Jen Simon ideally by March 10, 2020. The event is open to UU People of Color and People of Color interested in Unitarian Universalism.

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.
