Please bring a goodie to share and/or a nutcracker to display on our tables on Sunday, December 10th! Nutcrackers come in a variety of sizes and characters now, so bring one or two of your favorites to display as a part of our six table centerpieces, while we enjoy each other and our tea and goodies after the service. Please be sure put your name on the bottom of the base to avoid confusion. Looking forward to sharing the cheer of the season with you!
Please sign up to bring a sweet treat (cookies, cake, bar cookies, candies, etc. to enjoy with several teas, coffee, and cocoa. Sign up sheets will be available in the social hall. The tables will be decorated with the colors of the season while we visit in our fellowship hall. The more goodies provided, the sweeter the sharing! Bring your platter to the hall before the service. If you have any questions, contact Laura McBride (989.772.5512; email@example.com) or Susan Paton (989.400.9005; firstname.lastname@example.org).
We will celebrate our annual Harvest Feast tradition Sunday, November 19 following the worship service. Our youth will be presenting a musical program during the feast as well as collecting our annual donations to the UUSC Guest at Your Table Program, so please come prepared to generously participate in this ritual of giving as well as receiving the blessings of wonderful food and fellowship.
Sign up sheets are on the side table in the Social Hall for the Harvest Feast. There are items needed in almost every category except for maybe breads. Please add your name and food to the list or ask Laura McBride to do it for you (Lmcbride010@gmail.com or 989.772.5512). There are foil pans for you to use for hot dishes. Remember, we do not have electrical outlets to support crockpots, so bring your warmed cooked food in a foil pan with plastic wrap over the top and covered with foil. It will be put into a chafing dish to keep it warm and be served. Thank you for you contributions and presence at this longstanding fellowship tradition!
We will meet on Sunday, November 5, at 5:30 in the Fellowship Hall. A crockpot main dish and beverage will be provided. Please feel free to bring a dish to pass if you are able, but most importantly, just come!
Samhain (pronounced SAH-win) is a holiday known by another name - Halloween. The ancients believed this was the time of year when the veil between the living and passed was the thinnest. It is a time to remember those who have passed before us and listen to their stories which still live on inside us. It is also the Pagan “new year” with death and birth being two sides of the same coin.
We invite those of you who are interested in participating in this ritual to bring an item of food or drink to share at the potluck that follows the ceremony. We will gather at 6:30 p.m. and begin our ceremony promptly at 7:00 p.m.
