CHILDREN'S RE

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.

 

SOCIAL HOUR

We continue to need 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. You can volunteer for more than one team. Please contact the church office if you are willing and able.

A short bio of our speaker for the June 30th  service:  Dr. Melanie Cloonan-Schulte is a longtime UU and member of VUU Congregation in Chandler, where she serves as worship associate and co-leader of the Adult RE group on Buddhist Mindfulness. She was raised Catholic in Omaha, NE, where she first attended a UU Congregation during medical school, and moved to AZ for her Internal Medicine Residency at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix.  She is currently in private practice in Chandler, AZ and has applied to the lay ministry program through the UUA in order to deepen her involvement with UU ministry.

Here is an opportunity to meet other UUs and have a fun, educational travel experience! Julia Mehrer and Carolyn Saunders, members of the UU Church of Tucson, have planned a UUtah TUUr, October 14-20, 2019, to Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks.  The trip will be on a deluxe tour bus with either private or double rooms available in comfortable, reasonable hotels.  Some of the trip’s highlights include lunch and a visit to the Arcosanti planned community, hiking opportunities at various ability levels, museums, fantastic scenery, great photography opportunities, and an optional tour to Antelope Canyon.  Space on this optional tour is limited and should be booked no later than May 20. If anyone from your congregation has ever traveled on one of our tours, they can attest to what a good time we have on these trips and how interesting they are.  Since the trip will leave from Tucson, the UUCT congregation will offer complimentary home hospitality on the nights before and after the tour ends.  The trip cost for a private room is $1286 with double rooms only $956 per person.  For the complete itinerary and registration form, go to www.uuctucson.org.  For more information, contact Julia Mehrer, perujourney@gainbroadband.com or Carolyn Saunders, c_saunders1@msn.com.

On the second and fourth Saturdays of each month, the Sociable Breakfast Group meets at the Royal Oak Café in Sun City. So that seating can be prearranged, anyone wishing to attend should always contact Berta Czeczyk, (623) 562-6402 or Tom Smiley (623) 203-8566, prior to the date. Thank you!
