The annual Holiday Tea & Nosh is scheduled for Sunday, December 14th, 2014. If you have suggestions for a theme of this tradition, please let Laura McBride know by November 30th or she will pick. She is considering table decorations of switches and lumps of coals. To prevent this, share your ideas, please! Ideas include: tables decorated by various families, individuals, or friends (snowpeople, villages, Grinch, ornaments), color theme (silver, gold, red, green, blue) for each table, or faith based decorations (Hannukah, Christmas, Solstice, Kwanzaa). Share your ideas with Laura McBride, Social Fun Diva at 989.772.5512 or Lmcbride010@gmail.com.
The agenda for the monthly fellowship life meeting includes discussion of the upcoming All-Congregation Mini-Retreat, as well as distribution of aluminum pans for hot dishes being made for Harvest Feast. Kris Los will explain set up for the feast and food drop before the service on the 23rd.
Our Mission Statement: Not Just a Bumper Sticker
At the end of last year, we decided that transforming ourselves and transforming our world is our mission. What does it mean to transform ourselves and our world? What does it mean to be with one another, to promise to make our world and ourselves better as a result of being in this UUFCM community? Please join us as we explore these important questions at an all-congregation mini-retreat on Saturday, December 6, from 9:00 am – 1:00 pm. The workshop will be from 9-12 followed by a soup and bread luncheon from 12-1. All members and friends are invited to add their voice to this important discussion.
