UPCOMING UUCC EVENTS

Also visit us on Facebook for information and details.


REFLECTIONS

 Immediately after services each Sunday (approx. 11:00 a.m.)

Co-facilitated by Susan Ford and Deanna Lack, Reflections is an informal, non-judgmental, small-group discussion of the sermon topic. 

Participants share thoughts and insights or just listen -- your choice. All are welcome.



Compassionate Communication 

First and Third Wednesdays at 6:00 - 7:00 p.m.

Compassionate Communication, based on Marshall Rosenberg’s Nonviolent Communication method, is a tool for resolving differences. Lead by Ivan Cordrey and Susan Ford, this training will aid you in better understanding other people and in having other people better understand you. CC meets on the first and third Wednesdays of each month.


Social Justice Committee 

Second Sunday of the Month at approximately 11:30 a.m.

Unitarian Universalists have a legacy of “deeds not creeds.” Our work for a better world calls us to unexpected places as we harness love’s power to stop oppression.  UUCC's two focus areas are justice for the LGBTQ community and for women's reproductive rights.  For further information, contact Ivan Cordrey, Social Justice Committee chair, at fcchurch@charter.net.



Chalice Circle:  5:00 p.m. 

Second and Fourth Sundays of Each Month

Co-facilitated by Rochelle Turner and Susie Zuller, Chalice Circle is a small-group ministry. Meeting each second and fourth Sunday of each month at 5:00 p.m., this informal group will discuss topics of common spiritual interest.

This small group is the perfect place to meet new people and come to understand mutual life concerns. As we progress, our hope is to build deep connections with one another, with the congregation, and with the sacred.

Whether the topic is “religious timelines,” “living simply” or “the mystery of healing,” the conversation is respectful and caring and leads to greater understanding. Every participant has opportunities to share their perspectives, tell their stories, and listen mindfully. Our time together is structured with opening words, check-in, discussion of the evening's topic, likes and wishes, and closing words. Sessions will end at approximately 6:00 - 6:30. All are welcome.  


Immigration as a Moral Issue

Tuesday, 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. 

"Immigration as a Moral Issue" is a six-week exploration of immigration issues in the United States. Jeanne Schmitzer will facilitate the conversations on Tuesday nights from 6:00 to 7:00 at the church. Our first meeting begins on July 18, at 6:00 p.m. We will educate ourselves about human migration, the history of US immigration, current immigration policies, and human rights abuses that directly result from those policies. We hope you can join us.  You can reach Jeanne at jschmitzer@twlakes.net.


First-Sunday-of-the-Month Potluck Lunch

First Sundays, 11:00 a.m. 

Bring a cooked dish, and/or bring a store-bought item, and/or contribute $3 in the donation tin, and/or clean the dishes. When you bring food, please bring enough to serve all who wish to enjoy your dish. And EVERYBODY wishes to enjoy your tasty morsels!
