Dear Beautiful UUI Families,

This Sunday is Second Sunday! There are many ways to support and build our beloved community at UUI, and this one definitely one of them. Do you know all about Second Sunday? Here are the deets and the tails:

  1. It starts at 11:30am. This is right after the Service. We end Religious Exploration classes early so we can all have lunch together as a community.

  2. Lunch is provided! As in it's free, it's delicious and there are vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options. There are highchairs available for families who need one and there are always willing hands to hold babies while their grownups get a plate!

  3. After lunch there are activities and religious education opportunities for all ages from 12:15-1:30:

  • This Sunday Marti Matthews will be leading her popular Writing for Spiritual Growth Workshop. This is an informal, reflective writing session on what we've learned from our life experiences and in what direction we feel called to grow now.

  • Our Senior High Youth will be making gingerbread houses in the Youth Room.

  • All ages are invited to work on social justice projects in the Social Hall. One of our projects will be to create care bags for our homeless and food insecure neighbors that will be donated to organizations that can distribute them. The other project will be to complete our Change the World Project that our children have been collecting change for since this summer. We will finish counting the change, select tags from the UUI Giving Tree and help the children order the items to be delivered before next Sunday to fulfill the wishes on the giving tree tags.

If you are interested in volunteering, we could use your help with a variety of tasks--set up, clean up, and social justice projects.

It's going to be fun and meaningful. I so hope you can join us!

Peace and Love,

Susanne Hinson-Rieger
Director of Lifespan Religious Education
