Thanksgiving Gratitude Circles

Thursday, Nov 26 and Friday, Nov 27 from 10:00 – 11:00 AM
This year has changed many of our traditional holiday plans. Rev. Lisa invites you to stop by on Zoom to connect with our UUCM community and share our gratitude with one another. Take a break from cooking, or bring a piece of left-over pie, and enjoy visiting with one another. All are welcome! Check your Friday Update for the Zoom link.

Guest At Your Table

Resources available at UUCM starting this Sunday, Nov. 22 at 12:00 PM
The annual Guest At Your Table initiative of the UU Service Committee – our December social generosity offering recipient – will be introduced in worship in the next weeks. The Meaning of Home is this year’s theme. Resources include a 14 Day Calendar of vignettes, along with the traditional donations envelope and collection box. By noon on Nov. 22, these items will be available in a bin at the foot of the Free Little Library by the main entrance to church. Or you can use this link to print the template for the collection box at home.

All New Multigenerational Service Format

Our Thanksgiving service this Sunday will be multigenerational- engaging for people of all ages. It will be highly participatory. Multiple mediums will be used to revel together in the theme of gratitude. Our hope is that each household will come away with ideas and resources for practicing gratitude in daily life. If you have kids, you are encouraged to print out this activity booklet, to be enjoyed during or outside of worship: Thanksgiving Service Activity Pages.
