May 9th, 9:00 AM Service
Our Lay led Contemplative Service is from 9:00-9:50 am on Sundays (not available in summer), Readings introduce a silent period to reflect on a topic or idea, followed by an opportunity to share individual thoughts.
Phil Hildreth C.M.L.|
Director of Music, UUCM
I am going to my UU Musician's
Network annual convention in July, and I was called by the UUMN and was asked
to be on their Board as a trustee. This is the first step in being in the
hierarchy of the UUMN. I am excited to do this.
By now the budget for the church
has been taking shape, and I am ever fearful of Music being struck from the
next year's plan. I do realize that we worry about a great deal that never
occurs, but that doesn't sway me... I hope that, with the guidance of our new
minister Rev. Chip Wright, we can right this ship and begin to become more
fluid. I know us UUs don't pray per say, but my thoughts and wishes sure sound
like prayer these days.
By now your UUCM Choir, along with
many from around our district, sang as an All District Choir at this year's
District Assembly's Sunday Service. As I write this I am still working out the
details and have great hopes.
I hope all of you are well and
happy and singing.
| Remarkable People |
People will meet on Friday, May 14 in the Fireside Ropom at 7:30 p.m.
Our speakers will be two of our very active members Board Treasurer,
Margaret Johnston and Dick Park who is very involved in many of our
committees. So if you have any questions about who is in charge around
here they are bound to know! They have been dedicated UUs for many
years in many different congregations and they are enthusiastic about
their voluntary jobs. Come and meet them. Carolyn Bopp and Carole
Rosvold will host and provide a snack and a sip between speakers. See
you on the hill!|

Goods and Services auction is coming...
...A MESSAGE FROM YOUR AUCTION COMMITTEE
Where to bring auction items
If you have items that need to be displayed at the auction bring them to UUCM's community room (Robinson
Room, next to Chip's office). There will be a box marked auction. If
you haven't turned in your donation form please include it with your
item. Lori and Phil Smith will take the items to their house
and store them safely until the auction. Please do not bring them the
day of the auction. If you have valuable items such as jewelry & gift certificates give them to a member of the auction committee rather than leaving them in the box.
the auction gets closer, view the auction catalog even if you don't
place a bid. This will convince you to come to the auction and help you
convince others. You will see something for all budgets from a bid
amount of $10 for a Hand knitted item to $148 for a RV for two nights' camping. You
will see old favorites such as a tour of KQED and many new items such
as restaurant gift certificates for 5 different restaurants.
Print and View Flyers for neighbors and friends
If you can help the day of the auction contact Phil and someone will contact you with the details.
