Join us this Sunday at 10 am as we wonder about the cost of our high expectations for ourselves and one another.  We’ll explore how we can gain wisdom from Buddhist teaching about releasing those expectations and cultivating a “beginner’s mind.”

Following our 10:00 service, we begin our classes this week. For Adult Faith Development, we are offering 3 classes:
  • Every Text Is Sacred (Library) – Join Rev. Hannah to learn about how ancient Hebrew and Christian practices for reading scripture can apply to poetry, novels, or any text you find sacred!
  • Harvesting the Garden (Social Hall) – Join Birgitt Paul, Steve Scott, and the garden crew to learn about (and do!) some harvesting in the UUCC Garden.
  • Introduction to Baha’i (Sanctuary) – Join Sara Burlingame to learn about this global faith with more than 5 million followers!
Our children’s classes will be downstairs. 

Spirit Play ages (3yrs – 3rd grade)  – One parent and care givers/guardian is asked to attend the first Spirit Play class with their child/youth to get acquainted with the new classroom and procedures. 

Harry and UU (3rd grade – adult) – Get ready for some fun as we join Dumbledore’s Army and fight Horcruxes all year long! It’s going to be a blast… wait till you see our Harry Potter classroom!!! Come join the fun!

All are welcome!

Families of 3rd graders – The Faith Development team learned that we have lots of 3rd grade youth who really would like to have a choice of what class they attend this year. Since we’re starting off our very first Spirit Play classroom, we’d love to have the youth attend in Spirit Play but we realize the excitement around the Harry Potter curriculum is overwhelming great. If your 3rd grader would like to attend Harry and UU class they are welcome to check them out. Our 3rd grade youth will have the choice of attending either the classrooms this year.

Have fun and find your inner wizard if you’d like! OR come hang our with the younger crowd. We’ll explore all kinds of faith based UU stories and traditions through our Spirit Play curriculum. More about each curriculum can be found here.

We Need You!  We have no one to run sound for at least two months.  Experience is not necessary: we will train you. If you or someone you know would like to volunteer to help us in this capacity, please contact Rev. Hannah at, or Tamra Mabe, our Administrator, at 638-4554 or by email at Thanks!
