" No Taillight: A Three-Part Call to Youthful Spirits "
The Rev. Michael F. Hall, Guest Minister
On the eve of the holiday honoring the life of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., guest minister Rev. Michael F. Hall considers the noble efforts of young people like Dr. King, Jonathan Daniels and countless others to oppose hatred and change the world and asks what civil rights work is left for us to do?
Dress Warmly . . .
We are in the middle of replacing the control panel of our heating system. This should not take too long, but while it is in process parts of the building may have less heat than usual. Please dress warmly if you are coming for meetings or church. This is an excellent opportunity to get out a favorite sweater, fluffy, or vest.

May the warmth in our hearts, the radiance of our spirits, and the light in our minds keep us comfortably cozy.
Sunday Morning Childcare . . .
The childcare room is open and offers a safe, play oriented environment for children 4 and under. The church will do its best to schedule childcare workers each Sunday. If no one is able to staff the room on a given Sunday, parents are welcome to supervise their children in the room during worship. If you know someone who might enjoy a paid position watching young children during church, please have them contact the Director of Community Life and Learning at mlapointe@uucgl.org .
