Sunday Service: Belonging to Ourselves
October 6 at 10:30 am
Reflecting on Brene Brown’s book “Braving the Wilderness,” we’ll consider what it means to belong to ourselves, and the ways that our relationship with ourselves informs how we build community. Led by Rev. Laurel Gray.
This Week in Religious Education
Join us this week for Religious Education classes! We will begin in the sanctuary with the congregation at 10:30 for the opening and Time for All Ages, then our youth will proceed to class with their teachers. Parents, please note that RE time does go until 11:45 when we would like to have you pick up your children from their classes downstairs so you can take home any artwork and speak with the DRE/teacher if needed.
Calling all Teachers: We want YOU to join the Religious Education Program for the 2019-2020 Program year! No, you don’t have to have a child in the program, nor do you have to have any experience teaching! We work in teams of 2 with a prepared curriculum at your fingertips! All you need is the joy of learning, a dash of patience, and the desire to pass on Unitarian Universalism to the next generation! Not sure what you can offer? Feel free to talk to the DRE Cassie! You are welcome to shadow a class to see if it’s right for you, or to offer only part of a year. Whatever you can do would be greatly appreciated!
Food Drive: Once again we are going to be collecting food during the month of October for the Westborough Food Pantry! Items they have requested include: Instant Oatmeal, Ramen, Fruit cocktail, Brownie mix, Beef Stew, Pasta sauce, and Tomato products. Of course any shelf-stable food that you can donate would be greatly appreciated! Things for children to pack in their lunches, sugar free items, and Thanksgiving favorites would always be a good choice too!
Magazine Collection: During RE classes our youth participate in crafts and artistic creations that occasionally benefit from having magazines to cut up and glue on. If you have old magazines that you no longer want, we would love to have you donate them to our program! Please leave them in the collection box in the chapel if you can donate. Thank you! 
UU Knits October 7
Do you enjoy any type of needle or yarn craft? Then bring your WIP (Work in Progress) to sit and gab with other crafters while you make some progress! We provide a zero-pressure setting, and we have a great time. We welcome all skill levels. Join us in the Parlor on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of each month at 6:30 pm.
UU's at Lunch October 9
We will meet for lunch at the Red Rock Grill on Route 140 in Upton on Wednesday, October 9th at 11:30. The weather should be nice for a little autumn drive then. All are welcome, and a good time is always had by all, so please, feel free join us. If you’d like to join us please notify Mary Tribe ( marytribe5@gmail.com) by Saturday, October 5th so we can make our reservations.
