Rev. David Carter will lead the annual intergenerational Water Celebration.
We at First UU try to recycle as much as possible. We received donated wood chips from a tree trimming company and used the chips to mulch our landscaping. There is a lot of this wood-chip mulch left over and it is available to anyone who wants it from July through August or as long as it lasts. It is located on the old basketball court at First Unitarian Universalist Church at 7207 E. 21st St N. Please keep in mind that you may need to drive over a curb and to shovel the mulch yourself. Call the church office at 684-3481 if you have questions.
Harold Schlechtweg will present, "The Working Poor." He will examine how the economic policies of the government impact the working poor.
We begin our new Sunday school year on September 13. Our enthusiastic, dedicated RE team has planned an exciting lineup of lessons and celebrations.
-- Our primary aged children will participate in a UU Tapestry of Faith curriculum, Love Surrounds Us. This program explores our seven Principles in the context of children's Beloved Community of family/home, school and neighborhood.
-- We are implementing a brand new curriculum for intermediate aged children called Harry and UU which is based on the Harry Potter series of books that immerse children in the idea that one can work to make the world better. Its main purpose is social action.
-- We are excited to offer our high school students an opportunity to meet and explore a new curriculum, The Fifth Dimension, which uses episodes of the Twilight Zone as the basis for in-depth discussions of a wide variety of topics focusing on social issues and political statements.
