RE classes: On February 24th we are beginning in the chapel for a special children’s worship at 10:30 and you can pick your kids up from their regularly scheduled RE classes at 11:45! Thanks!

Battling Horcruxes: This year our 5th/6th grade RE class is participating in the program Harry and the UU, which explores the injustices in the world today through the lens of JK Rowling’s Harry Potter book series. February’s horcrux is about Animal Cruelty and how we can confront it!

Spirit Play: Come hear some moral, interfaith stories, have hands on play, and enjoy a light snack.

2nd-4th Grade: 
Moral Tales: This week we will be practicing and putting on a play for the Spirit Play class and our parents! Feel free to join us at 11:30 in the preschool room!

5th-6th Grade:

7th-8th Grade:
Modified Building Bridges: For the month of February we will be learning about Islam!
Friday Fun Night February 22
Friday Fun Nights at UUCSW are a big hit! Stop by on the last Friday of each month at 6:30 pm to meet up with friends and decompress after a busy week. Bring a game, food and/or beverage to share, and join us for a fun time!
Layered Foods Challenge February 23
The second annual UUCSW food contest is this Saturday from 5 pm to 7 pm at the church – you won’t want to miss it! This is the first event in our 2019 Dinner Fundraiser lineup. This year we’re doing a Layered Foods Challenge. It's a family-friendly contest where everyone’s a winner!

It's all about the layers this year. The classic noodle, sauce, and cheese lasagna is a sure bet, but if you're feeling creative, don't hesitate to bring a lasagna with a twist or some other layered creation. For dessert entries, anything with layers will fit the bill - trifle, cake, bars, etc. The sky's the limit!

Since this is a fundraiser, we're charging $10 per adult - kids are free! We are happy to accommodate last minute entries – just come and join in the fun!
Buddhist Group February 24
In our last meeting, we had a productive discussion about meditation. This will continue to be a focus of our meetings. Next time, we will also be discussing some interesting Buddhist ideas at the core of the teachings. Feel free to drop in for any meeting. Next one is February 24 in the Chapel at 1:30 pm. For questions contact Erin Gold kentuckybluerose@gmail.com or Carol Palmer cgpl1fe@yahoo.com. May all beings know peace.
