Sunday at UUCC – Oct. 2, 2016

Worship Services at 9 and 11 a.m.

“Blessing of the Animals” – Rev. Molly Housh Gordon

Join us for an Intergenerational Blessing of the Animals Service. This is a time when we rededicate ourselves to the care of other creatures and learn about the beloved animals in the lives of our fellow members and friends. You may bring your well-behaved pet in a carrier or on a leash – or bring a photo of your pet. You may also bring a photo of any deceased pets you would like to honor during a time of remembrance.

Other Programs and Activities

9 to 10 a.m. – Forum Adult Discussion – Lower Level, Forum Room/Library

George Frissell, long-time UUCC member, will continue his series on world religions. Forum information.

10:05 to 10:45 a.m. – Mindfulness Meditation – Centering Room or Fire Circle

Mindfulness Meditation takes place from 10:05 to 10:45 a.m. every Sunday in the Centering Room – or, if the weather is suitable, outside around the Fire Circle. On fourth Sundays throughout the year, Mindfulness Meditation takes place at the Fire Circle whatever the weather. Meditators of all levels of experience are welcome.  This is mainly silent meditation with some instruction, if needed, and with brief selected readings from eminent teachers. Our hope is to build a group of UU members committed to regular meditation practice. Email Peter Holmes for more information.

11 a.m. – Children’s Religious Education – Lower Level

We offer a religious education program for pre-schoolers through junior high school students, as well as nursery care for infants. The children and youths attend the first portion of the 11 a.m. worship service in the Sanctuary with their families before going to their classes or other scheduled activities. Fall RE classes began on Sept. 11.
