Our trans, genderqueer, and nonbinary siblings have long known the power of subverting expectations and honoring the divine within themselves and the earth. Whether through tarot, crystals, or earth-based ritual, many of our siblings who live on the edges of gender and sexuality find connection and meaning in subversive spirituality. Join us in worship as we explore the lessons in their journeys and experiences!

All are welcome!

Classes this week:

Library – Making Prayer Beads with Elizabeth Thorson
Sanctuary — Renewing Welcome~  Join us for a session to learn more about how we can renew our practices of welcoming LGBTQ+ folks into our congregation, as part of renewing our official status as a Welcoming Congregation with the UUA.
Social Hall  — Circling the Divine:  Using the Labyrinth in Spiritual Practice w/ Rev. Hannah~  Join Rev. Hannah and explore the many ways that labyrinths have been used for spiritual deepening throughout the ages. We’ll engage in labyrinth practices, too!

Announcing a permanent change in the administrator’s office hours beginning Monday Nov. 18, 2019. 

I have a new second job that requires me to change the current office hours. Thank you to everyone here at the UU Church of Cheyenne for working with me to do this. It is a great opportunity, and I am grateful that I can stay with you all and take this new position as well. 

Our turn to host the homeless children and their families from Family Promise is coming right up!  Yes, this is “Thanksgiving Week.” The day center will be closed on Friday the 29th, so families will need to be hosted during the day as well as on Saturday the 30th. 
 Sunday, November 24 – Sunday December 1.

Please email Carol Bowles at cbowleswy@gmail.com, or call her at 221-6445  for more information.

If you are interested in being a vendor at this year’s WinterMart, please follow the link below. 


We still are looking for a volunteer or volunteers to assist in the sound booth on Sunday mornings.  Experience is not necessary: we will train you. We do ask that you commit to a schedule; it doesn’t have to be every Sunday, but we do need to know when you can cover sound. If you or someone you know would be willing to volunteer to help us in this capacity, please contact Rev. Hannah at minister@uucheyenne.org, or Tamra Mabe, our Administrator, at 638-4554 or by email at administrator@uucheyenne.org. Thanks!

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

Please help the Faith Development Committee raise funds for our church by donating your favorite, homemade pie to our PIE AUCTION on Sunday Nov 24. The PIE Auction will work just like the Mother’s Day Cake Auction. Bring your favorite pie and bid on someone else’s grand masterpiece.

A Note from our DFD, Mary Scherden – I will be out of the office on Study Leave Nov 6 – 13th attending LREDA Fall Con and a training. If there’s an urgent need please feel free to text or email, but know that I’m attending a conference and training so it may take an hour or two to get back to you.

General Assembly Registration Now Open!

Please Join Us For General Assembly 2020
JUNE 24-28, 2020!
General Assembly is the annual gathering of Unitarian Universalists for conducting business of the Association, exploring the theological underpinnings of our faith, and leaning fully into our mission and principles. Please join us Wednesday, June 24 through Sunday, June 28, 2020 in Providence, Rhode Island for this 5-day immersive experience themed Rooted, Inspired & Ready! Join your faith family at inspirational worship services, informative workshops and a bustling exhibit hall. We anticipate that 4,500+ UUs will gather for this unforgettable experience and leave with renewed energy and innovative ideas for congregational and community engagement.
Registration is Now Open!
Registration is now open at uua.org/ga/registration. Full-time registration is $400 for adults, $250 for high school youth and retired and candidate ministers, $150 for off-site registrants. Early bird registration is now through March 15, 2020. Rates increase on March 16th.
NEW! Registration Payment Plan
Prefer smaller payments over a longer period of time? We’ve designed a payment plan just for you. When you register, simply click “payment plan” when prompted and, for as little as $50 down, you can spread out the balance of your registration over several months. Registration must be paid in full on or before February 29, 2020.
The UUA is committed to the goal of making GA accessible to as many attendees as possible. Go to uua.org/ga 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.
