Amanda is Graduating Next Thursday and You're Invited!!
For the last 9 years you have been an integral part of my Ministerial formation, and graduation day wouldn't be complete without you. 
On Thursday, May 13th at 7:00 PM central, I will graduate from Starr King School for the Ministry with my Master of Divinity. Due to COVID-19 the ceremony will be on-line. Admission is free, and you can reserve your ticket by clicking here. This ceremony is the culmination of many years of discernment and work, and I would be honored to have you there to celebrate this special occasion with me.

Little Food Pantry

The Little Food Pantry needs your help. The pantry is being heavily used and church members have been generous in filling it. While the weather is still cool, fresh fruits and veggies are always welcomed--apples, bananas, carrots, taters, onions, etc. For some reason, black beans, lentils, and chickpeas aren't well-liked. Let's keep helping our neighbors! A big thanks!

Dance for Body and Spirit

Dear UUCH members and friends,

It was such a delight to be with you, even virtually, in January. Thank you to Rev. Jaimie and your worship team and to all of you for showing up in the spirit of community. I hope we can stay connected through music and dance! To do that:

You can find my music and band email list at https://ParkerWoodland.com. Nothing means more to a musicianduring these hard times when we cannot be playing live--than to share our songs with folks online.

I’d love to see you Fridays at 10am Central time on Zoom to dance! All welcome! Dance for Body and Spirit (akin to Zumba) is at this link weekly: https://zoom.us/j/3330426480?pwd=a1BXQW9FVFlzWGRBTlVJSTdwdVBuZz09 
Meeting ID: 333 042 6480
Passcode: letsdance

It’s so much fun, whatever your experience or not with Zumba. All ages (including kids), genders, abilities and fitness levels welcome. If you have any tech troubles or questions, don’t hesitate to contact me at erinjwalter@gmail.com.

Thank you again for the gift of connection and being together. Wishing your congregation, staff, and families a wonderful rest of the year ahead.

In support,
Rev. Erin Walter
