THE FOREWORD - Summer 2015 Newsletter

 (Part One:  Spiritual --- listing Sunday worship activities, religious education for all ages & Notes from the Minister, or visit our entire June newsletter)

 

Note on Schedule.  Our retiring minister, Rev. Art Severance, will be on vacation during the month of July and our new minister, Rev. Michelle Buhite, will be in the pulpit on Sunday, August 16th. Until then, members of our congregation (who were trained in a work- shop called “Preaching By Parishioners”) will lead worship and preach. Our summer services tend to be more informal. The new church year will begin Sunday, September 13.

 EXPRESSING JOYS & SORROWS

     Because sometimes the very lighting of a special candle can be healing, during the quiet time after Joys and Concerns have been read, people may come forward silently and light a candle, then return to their seats. We have moved the candle stand for easier access, and also so it doesn't interfere with the children coming forward for the story.

     If you want to share a joy or sorrow with the congregation, arrive early Sunday morning before the service. Visit the table in the foyer next to the Welcome Desk and fill out the appropriate card - yellow for a Joy; blue for a Sorrow. During the service, the cards will be read by a member of the Caring for One Another committee and a candle will be lit for each.

 

If you are unable to attend church, or would like to hear a particular sermon again, there is a good chance you can find it on the UUCA website. Go to the "sermons" tab under "Worship & Ministry" on the left side of the page in the Main Menu - or click here. ~Joe Rautenstrauch
