Children’s Religious Education Our children’s RE program is volunteer-driven and because we insist upon two sets of adult eyes in each classroom, we have on-going opportunities to serve. Being a classroom assistant requires no prep time. They assist with classroom activities, stories, and participating in discussion. Our teachers receive excellent, easy to use lesson plans that are well received by the students. Volunteering one or two Sundays would be of great benefit to our children. Contact Lisa Lawrence at if you can help in any capacity.
We continue to need some volunteers to set up for the social hour after Sunday service. Team 1; Prep will put out the adult and kid’s treats. Set up coffee and tea services. Team 2; coffee will make the coffee and clean the pots. Team 3; Load DW, wipe down tables, put up left over treats. It is my hope and vision to have rotating teams of volunteers within each category. You can volunteer for more than one team. If you are willing and able to volunteer, please contact Danean Mitchell at 623-546-6050. Thank you in advance for your assistance.
UUC Weekly Announcements
Proposed Bed and Breakfast Fundraiser by Susie Cole
On a recent trip to New Orleans, Sally Thomas and I stayed at the home of a couple from a local UU church that offers B&B services as a church fundraiser. Interested church members volunteer to host UU guests for short-term stays at their homes, providing lodging and breakfast. We paid by check made out to their congregation. We very much enjoyed the company of the couple and even attended their UU church on the Sunday we were there. They said they have met some very nice, interesting UUs from all over by participating. In the process, it has provided funds to their church.
Our Board recently agreed to research the possibility of developing a similar program for our UU church. At this point, I would like to find out if there are enough people in our congregation who would be interested and willing to participate by hosting guests in their homes. Once I know whether there is enough interest to proceed, we’ll work out the details. Remember, the host only provides bed and breakfast for short-term stays. The guest provides all other needs – transportation, other meals, entertainment and money to our church. Contact me if you would consider being a host. firstname.lastname@example.org
