Sunday Worship Service
June 10, 10:30 am: 'Recognitions'
Rev Chip Wright & Mikey Songster, UUCM Board President with Worship Associate Dianne Estrada
Join us for the last Sunday of our official church year as we recognize the wonderful volunteers who have taught our kids in the RE program through this year. Please come and show your appreciation for all these wonderful folks who did this important work for our community and the world! Afterwards we adjourn to enjoy our big "Last Sunday of the year" potluck!

Our Lay led Contemplative Service is from 9:00-10:00 am on Sundays in the Fireside Room.
Readings introduce a silent period to reflect on a topic or idea, followed by an opportunity to share individual thoughts.
| Chip's Clips|
|Reverend Chip Wright|
This will be my last Chip's Clips until September. It is hard to believe we have been on this journey together now for three years and looking ahead into a fourth. We must be doing something right together!
As we head into the 2012-13 church year we go there with lots of potential. We will be bringing on a Ministerial Intern for the 2012-13 year. Her name is Irene Boczek and she is a graduate of Starr King School. She will be with us through June 2013. We will also enter in the fall with our new DRE on board. Her name is Dara Olandt. We are finalizing her contract this month and she will be coming on in Mid-August. She is also a Starr King Graduate and a bright young person who I know will bring new and exciting energy to our community and our RE programming.
So there will be several new faces on staff and in other leadership roles as we enter into next church year. I know they will be graciously welcomed and I wait with excitement to see the new and different ways they will be joining us in our evolution into the future of UUCM!
I am aware that there will be grief in the loss of our long time DRE Linda Haumann but remember the search committee looked long and hard to find the right person for us. I know we will let the future unfold as it should with Dara in this role as we learn about each other and give our support and trust. What I can say and truly believe is that we can all look ahead with excitement and joy knowing we have such a bright light and competent person coming on as our new DRE!

| New member bio - Ariana Stugard|
|I am a freelance video / multimedia artist and web designer. I also work at the Museum of the American Indian in Novato. I have a son, Devin, a dog, Buster and am newly married to Leif Stugard. I am a graduate of SFSU with a double-major in Film and Broadcast Communications. I have taught media literacy and traditional film animation to all ages. I am very happy to be a part of your organization. I used to go to the UU church in Taos, NM & Grass Valley, CA - before I moved back to Marin County. This is my first time becoming an official member of a religious or spiritual organization. |
| Bridging Photos|
| View photos of the Bridging service at our web site Photogallery or on our facebook
page. There were lots of tears, applause and celebration as our YRUU seniors, our Youth Advisor Dan Mansergh and our DRE Linda Haumann all bridged to new horizons.
| New member bio - Larry and Marie Gray|
My (Larry) background has at least some of the eclectic background in Spiritual ideas and organized Eastern religious and spiritual background that your minister, and perhaps some of the members of the congregation have. Even there I have never committed to anything other than the occasional volunteering.
Maybe now that I am a member of something organized for the first time it will somehow guide me to what place I might have at UUCM. I am certain I can pick up some responsibility needed by Congregation members to make everything work. I need to at least do a fair share of volunteerism where needed. I once worked for KCBX Public Radio, Development in San Luis Obispo. Since then my work career has been a stressful one in sales of Management Consulting to Mortgage Lending. I like being of "great service" to clients.
Otherwise, along with Marie I love to hike throughout the beautiful Marin County, sometimes bike and sometimes kayak. I am working on renewing my dedication to meditation and struggling to get beyond basic chords on the guitar!
We moved from Sonoma County to San Anselmo in April of 2011. Marie has a BA in Pure Mathematics and a JD in law. She loves to garden at our home.

Many UUCM members have enriched their spiritual development by providing direct service to Marin's homeless community. Contributions of money, time, food and labor are important.
Marin's Interfaith Street Chaplaincy offers us a rich opportunity to connect. That's all. Just connect...for the sake of our own spiritual development.
Summer dinners will be prepared FOR US--at St. Vincent's soup kitchen--by volunteers from the street community.
There will be an open mike
for anyone who wants to sing, recite, or otherwise perform for the gathering. So contact email@example.com
(453-6221) to reserve your seat at the table.
July 2, August 6, September 10, October 8.Open mike starts @ 5:30pm. Dinner is served @ 6.
If you care about an issue or cause that you want UUCM members to know about, please bring it to our attention at the Social Concerns information table at refreshment time.
