Youth Gift Wrapping: Dec 2. During Game Night

imageIf 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!

Holiday Pageant: Important Details

Sunday, December 11 During Worship
Each and every child and youth will have a part in this beloved UUCM tradition, so mark your calendars now! Adults: If you would like to do a reading, please email Karen by Dec. 3. Parts will be distributed during RE on Dec. 4, with follow-up emails to families confirming. Families: We ask that families arrive by 9:30 on Dec. 11 for our one and only practice, and then sit together in the sanctuary so everyone can enjoy singing the carols together as a family. RE classes will be encouraged to sit in the same general area so it will be more obvious when it is time for their part and can leave together. Sections in the sanctuary will be labeled, but feel free to adjust when families have children in multiple classrooms participating.

Youth Group Cookie Bake

Saturday, December 10 from 12:30-3:30pm

Bring your favorite holiday treats and some things to dress them up with and prepare for a sugary-sweet afternoon! Click here for more information and to sign up for this cookie extravaganza.

Bring a beloved game that either you have received as a gift, or one that is so fun you can’t wait to share it with others. With any luck, you’ll find a new favorite as you connect with others in this joyous evening filled with laughter, and just a wee bit of competition!

A bonfire will also be roaring, if weather allows. All children must be accompanied by an adult if they are outside by the fire.

If you are coming for dinner at 5pm, RSVP to Karen by noon that Friday noting any dietary restrictions and number of people eating. Future game nights will be the first Friday of each month, mark Jan. 6 your calendar now!
