If you already have a jump on holiday shopping, feel free to pop in on our monthly Game Night on Dec. 2 and have UUCM youth wrap up any gifts in brown paper packaging and beautiful ribbons and adornments! This is a UUCM auction item that is still open for this night only! Cost is $4 to have an item (or two small items) gift wrapped while you are free to enjoy our monthly game night! Please label “TOs and FROMs” clearly for each gift. Our elves from our Crossing Paths RE class will set to work, and with any luck, they will wrap things up (pun intended) fairly early so everyone can delight in the festivities of game night!

As we shared previously, Allison Laura (current Office Administrator at UUCM) has shared with Rev. Lisa and the Board her intent to leave her position at the beginning of the New Year to pursue opportunities toward her teaching career.
Our congregation is currently seeking a new Office Admin, who will facilitate the ongoing operations and communications of the church and support a vibrant, connected congregational life. This position serves as a hub of information and creates a welcoming, organized environment for all who come into contact with the congregation. Applications are due by December 15, with a target start date of January 1, 2023. If you know someone who may be a good fit, please spread the word using this link: http://bit.ly/3VmyOvE. Thank you!
For the past 4 1/2 years, UUCM has grown in organizational strength and clarity with the caring, creative and agile leadership of Allison Laura as our Office Administrator. In the midst of constant change, Allison has kept us organized, connected, and supported with the resources we needed at just the right time and with warmth and encouragement along the way.
Allison has shared with Rev. Lisa and the Board her intent to leave her position at the beginning of the New Year to pursue opportunities toward her teaching career. Please see below to read her personal message to the congregation about this decision. We have shared our gratitude with Allison, how much she means to the congregation, and how much she will be missed. We look forward to a special celebration with her on January 8th. We hope you will join us in wishing Allison well on this new chapter of her life. Our loss is education’s gain: the world needs teachers like her!
