Please join us for this year’s annual Holiday Play, Kamp Kristmas, written and directed by Jeffrey Hatcher: Melissa Carmichael hates Christmas, and her anti-Holiday spirit is driving everyone nuts. Then Melissa’s car breaks down in Christmaston where she ends up being indoctrinated “the holiday way.”

The UUCM Board has heard that we need to share more information with the congregation about our ongoing ministerial search. Based on the Board Listening Sessions which were held last month, we learned a great deal, and are working hard to formulate the congregational goals for choosing our next minister. These last weeks of December bring a slow down in official activities. But in early January 2020 we will be updating you on the specifics of this unfolding process.

In moments of moral crisis, Unitarian Universalists know we are called to show up. And 2020 is one of those moments. Not all of us can vote, but all of us can be part of organizing to help move the country to #VoteLove and #DefeatHate. On Sunday, January 12, UUs from across the country will gather as a virtual community for the UU the Vote Launch Event. Join us at UUCM for the Zoom watch party followed by a discussion on how our church can support the campaign. Learn more at uuthevote.org.
Visit uucmtka.org and scroll to the bottom of our Worship page to listen to sermons, guest speakers and musical performances from past UUCM services. New uploads are added regularly – check back often!
Can you be a Team Teacher this spring, rotating with other Teachers to lead RE class sessions? The commitment would be 10 Sundays Jan. 19th – May 10th (5 Sundays leading the lesson, 5 Sundays supporting another Teacher as they lead and 5 Sundays off). We need 2 Teachers for each of these age groups: Birth-Kindergarten, 1st/2nd grade and 3rd/4th. Click here to see the job description and contact Jennifer at email@example.com with questions. Thank you for considering if you can help make RE possible for the children of UUCM 🙂
We hope the families participating in Guest at Your Table (raising funds and awareness of the work of the UU Service Committee) are having a great experience learning about women who change their corner of the world. Families will be invited to place their donation boxes under the tree during the offertory Dec. 22nd and 29th.
In an effort to improve our limited parking situation, ten new parking spaces were added to the UUCM parking lot using a special grid system over one of our grassy spaces. Thanks to all who helped out! More notes below, from Ben Kyriagis:
11 people + 6 wheelbarrows + one truckload of sand + one hour = Ten new parking spots for UUCM members, friends and visitors. Plastic underlayment was placed by Bob & Christy Dachelet and Lee Kaster yesterday. Photos by Christy Dachelet and Ben Kyriagis.
