Many thanks to all those stepping forward to make RE possible at UUCM, by signing on to be Teachers and Helpers this spring. There is only one role that is still open: Teaching K-2nd graders 2x/month. Please let Jennifer (email@example.com) know if you have interest. And again, many thanks to our volunteers!
Several fantastic parents have been tuning in when they can, Wednesday evenings, for Parent Circle. We listen to and encourage each other. We laugh and rant and learn. Join in whenever it works for you- we’d love to see ya! We use the RE Family Chapel Zoom link printed in every Friday Update. Contact Jennifer with any questions (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Religious Education classes for Preschool-12th grade started on Sunday, September 20th. New families are welcome! If you haven’t registered your child(ren) for RE yet, click here to fill out the RE Registration Form.
Families of Preschool-5th graders will gather at 11:15am most Sundays for Family Chapel Time before kids break into age groups 11:30am-noon. Use the Zoom link info in the Friday Update to join in the Family Chapel Time.
Families of registered 6th-9th graders will receive the link for the Dungeons & Dragons groups running at different times on Sunday afternoons.
Registered 10th-12th graders will be meeting at 11:30am at the UUCM fire pit on Sundays (weather permitting, otherwise on Zoom) on a schedule set by their RE leaders. The meeting will follow specific guidelines related to Covid-19 safety as outlined in Phase 1 of our pandemic preparedness plan.

Want to save money, help the environment and support the Youth at UUCM? Express Metals in Hopkins will take a large variety of products that contain metal – Lawn mowers, snow blowers, BBQ grills, washers, dryers, lead acid batteries and more.
When dropping off the items, just mention that you want the proceeds to go to the UUCM – Youth Group. Our Youth set this up about 4 – 5 years ago to raise money and aid the environment by keeping recyclable material out of landfills.
