A Longer View of Time 
Service Leaders:  Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray
Sunday, November 13 at 9:30 AM & 11:15 AM
It could be argued that Americans think about time on a very short horizon. We want it now! This can increase our expectations as well as disappointment. How might a longer view of time help us create deeper acceptance and wisdom for our lives?

Unique, handmade items by our own UU artists and crafters will be available for purchase on the patio and in the Johnson Room. A minimum of 20% of all sales will go back to supporting our mission.

Community nights are opportunities for us to gather together and eat in community.

Bring your appetite, enthusiasm and a side dish or dessert to share if you're able. The suggested donation is $5/adults, $2/children under 10, $10/family. You are welcome to bring a sack supper if you prefer.  The meal this week is Lasagna Rolls. For more information about community nights, please email Janine Gelsinger below.
Open Small Group
Thursday, November 17, at 7:00 PM in Annex B 
Facilitators:  Mike Sheffer & Josh Tures
Small Group Ministry is an ideal way to connect to others and tend to your heart and spirit at UUCP.  Life can feel like a frenzied struggle against a materialistic world, which leaves us feeling disconnected from our deepest selves and without the energy to reach out in love and service to others. They follow the monthly worship themes and offer a way to engage the themes in your daily life and grow and learn with a group while sharing your own story, insights and learnings. Check out our Open Drop-In group Thursday, November 17, to see what a small group is like. For more info visit the link below.
