Letters to Grandmother
Rev. Don Rollins

 It was Antoine de Saint-Exupery that reminded us love and wisdom must be transmitted, generation to generation. Don will lead us in a look at how important that process really is. UUC’s Choir will sing at the service.

Upcoming Events and News Highlights

Come to UUC's Annual Goods & Services Auction FUNdraiser - SUUper Heroes!

When:  Saturday, October 22 from 5-9 PM

 

What is a Service Auction? It’s an auction where you can bid to purchase fabulous goods and services donated by our fellow congregants. There will be both live and silent auction sessions. Enjoy delicious food and beverages and participate in a puzzle contest. Take a chance on the 50/50 raffle with ½ going to the winner and the other ½ going to a charity chosen by our Community Service Team.

 

What Should I Donate? Be creative! Specialty food items available at the auction or picked up at a later date, themed dinners, lessons from experts, and skilled labor are always great sellers - and much appreciated by buyers. Donate one, two, three or twenty items! The minimum bid for any entry is $5, and all values must be in even dollar amounts. For other ideas, go to the Catalog Grid section from the link at the top of the auction’s homepage. You can see what is already being offered this year in each category and can click on the links for the 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015 catalogs at the bottom of the page to get ideas from previous years.

 

How Do I Donate? Simply log onto http://www.togetherauction.com/uucnrv. If your phone number is in UUC’s directory, you are already in the system. Phone numbers are used to identify you, but several people may be listed separately or together on one phone number. Complete directions for logging in and entering your donation are on the auction website. Complete your donations by October 9 to allow time for publishing the catalog.

 

Will There Be Childcare? Children will have their own fun-filled SUUper Heroes party on the lower level, and there will be childcare for children 3 and under.

 

Want to Help?  Sign up on one or more of the volunteer sheets at the auction table in Elarth after the service.

Two Community-wide Support Groups for Mental Health

On the 3rd Monday of every month, all in our community are welcome to participate in either of two support groups. The first group is for family and friends of those with a mental illness, and the other group is for those coping with a mental illness themselves. Both groups meet from 6-7:30 PM. Come share your experiences with others, learn coping skills, find out about local resources, receive support, and more.
