Sunday, August 21
Religious Education this Sunday

This Sunday is our first week of Religious Education for the new church year!  Children and youth will go to their new classes, meet some of their teachers, play some getting acquainted games, and then gather for Sundae Sunday in the Commons Building, where they will have an ice cream Sunday and make their name tags for the coming year with a button machine.

Parents/guardians/grandparents are invited to share a sundae when picking up their kids in the Commons Building at 11:45am, and there will be blank registration forms available at that time.  Also available is our quick and easy online registration at http://www.uui.org/religious-education/.

Blessing of the Backpacks

Children and youth, teachers, professors, and homeschool parents are asked to bring their backpack to church this Sunday to be blessed.  During the ritual, they will receive a UUI keychain to hang on their backpack or use for keys.  For more information, please contact our Director of Lifespan Religious Education at re (at) uui.org.

 

 

Black Lives Matter Roadside Vigil

The next Black Lives Matter roadside vigil will be Sunday, August 21, from 2-3pm.

The location will be the intersection of 86th and Meridian, with on-street parking on Pennsylvania and Washington off 86th street (just east of Meridian.)  We will stand on the sidewalk facing the roadways holding signs affirming that black lives matter.  UUI will provide signs and sign-making materials, and we will have our Black Lives Matter banner.

People should bring water, sunscreen, and chairs or umbrellas if they need them.  The vigil is open to everyone and anyone who will support the BLM message, not just people from UUI.  We are asking people not to wear the yellow Standing on the Side of Love t-shirts (because we do not want this to be about ourselves) and not to bring messages that de-emphasize or draw attention from the Black Lives Matter message (for example, All Lives Matter or Blue Lives Matter.)  If you have questions, please email jamie (at) uui.org.
