Many thanks to all who supported the youth Holiday Cookie Sale on 12/15- the plates of cookies sold out in record time. The sale raised $560 to support upcoming youth trips and activities. Thank you, Stacy Doepner-Hove and family, for your leadership of this fundraiser.
Do you remember your first day at UUCM? Did someone greet you warmly and share some helpful information? Being greeted is particularly crucial for those visitors considering our RE program for their kids. If you can come to service early once a month or so to share a smile and give a little tour, please contact Jennifer at email@example.com. We need you 🙂 This is a wonderful service opportunity for a family to share (and great for individuals too).
Luz Froemming is the friendly childcare professional currently running our nursery. She comes to us with two year’s experience as a Teacher at Tierra Encantada Preschool in Minneapolis. She is excited to offer quality care. She most loves reading to children, as well as teaching a little Spanish to interested kids. We are grateful to have her caring for our youngest UUCMers.
Over the next couple of weeks, you may notice some modifications to the RE classrooms including installation of blinds over the windows, and keys hanging by the doors. These changes are part of a broader effort on the part of the church to update and more thoroughly implement our Active Threat Policy. As we’ve seen over the last several years, attacks in and on public spaces do occur, and while the likelihood that we at UUCM would be a target is small, the UUCM Board felt it prudent to be sure that we are equipped to respond should an emergency arise. So, we’ll be making some modifications to the classrooms over the coming months, and before May, plan to have opportunities for the congregation to practice how we would respond to different kinds of emergency situations. If you have questions or concerns about any of this, please be in touch with Arif Mamdani via email or at 952.473.5900 x 102.
