The North Wall Gallery Space presents the work local artist Ricardo Levins Morales who describes himself as “healer and trickster organizer disguised as an artist”. He sees his art and organizing practices as a ways to address individual, historical and collective trauma. He operates out of a store front studio/gallery in south Minneapolis. A winner of numerous awards and a valued resource to grassroot social action communities, Ricardo distributes his posters, cards and banner on his website: rlmartstudio.com. If you wish to purchase any of the works, please contact Christy Dachelet at firstname.lastname@example.org.
UUCM Choir is starting again very soon and we want all interested singers! The UUCM choir rehearses on Wednesdays in the sanctuary from 7:00–8:30 and performs ten times throughout the church year (for a full schedule please see the church calendar) with our first rehearsal starting on Wednesday, September 11th. This year we are in particular need of sopranos and tenors so if you fit either of those voice types, please consider joining. All are welcome, regardless of skill level; our core group is very welcoming and encouraging to new people getting their feet wet in choral singing. If you are interested in joining, but have never sung in a choir before, email Music Director Paul Winchester at email@example.com and he will set up a time to meet with you to help get you acclimated. Looking forward to a great year of music making!
7:00 to 8:30 PM weekly meeting starting Sunday, September 8 through December 15, 2019. Click here to view Big Book Study and Action Group flyer.
This is not your typical “thanks for sharing” kind of Twelve Step meeting, nor is it like any seminar. Participants are asked to DO all Twelve Steps as laid out in our basic textbook. Don’t attend Study and Action if you want to learn something ~ come if you want to do something! Each of the guides has done the Twelve Steps and coached others. They will coach you through the instructions in our basic textbook, Alcoholics Anonymous. They will use a dictionary published at about the same time as the book to help us better understand the directions as they were written by the first 100 men and women. Though we read and study the AA “Big Book”, this group is not limited to members of AA. Members of Al-Anon, NA, CA, GA, EA, OA and SAA frequently attend. Continue reading →
In these classes, participants have an opportunity to share more deeply their individual spiritual journeys and to explore whether membership in UUCM feels right for them. There are two classes in this series, each is offered on the second Sunday of the month at 11:15 am, following the service. Please email Gary Charles if you are in need of childcare during this event.
Participants will share their own spiritual journey. Together, we will interactively explore a broad overview of Unitarian and Universalist history and what it means to be a UU.

The work of two local photographers, Cara Buettner and Jeff Adrian is featured this month on the North Wall Art Space. The exhibit shows how two different artists capture and interpret their surroundings. Jeff Adrian is a Friend of the congregation. If you wish to purchase any of the works, please contact Christy Dachelet at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In July 2019, the North Wall Art Space at UUCM featured the work of Maple Grove artist, dancer, singer/songwriter and entrepreneur Beverly Tipton Hammond. Her “Hattitudes” series first appeared as part of the “Grace” exhibit at the MN African American Heritage Museum and Gallery. These acrylic portraits of women in exuberant, colorful hats are a paean to the long history of women and “church hats”, and is inspired by Ms. Hammond’s passion for millinery.
If you are interested in purchasing the art please contact Christy Dachelet at 952-270-7304 or email@example.com.
Note on Healing Touch: There doesn’t seem to be interest in Healing Touch at this time, so we will not hold sessions for the rest of the summer. We hope to offer Healing Touch again later this fall and appreciate the opportunity we’ve had to bring it to you.
