Dear UU Parents and Guardians,
Stuffed Animal Sleepover!
Save the dates!
While the church is empty, our stuffie friends will play!
Adults and children alike are invited to bring a stuffed animal friend to the church and place in a rubbermaid container outdoors
December 19th and 20th from 12-5pm, or 21st from 5:30-7:30pm
PLEASE be sure this is a friend you can be without for an extended period of time!
The animals will quarantine for 3 days before playing with one another.
Chelsea will record the entertainment that ensues over LPS Winter Break, and you will return to the church to pick up your friend and wash upon returning home
Jan 2 or 3rd from 12-5pm, or 4th from 5:30-7:30pm
All stuffed animals must register for this event!
More details and registration form will arrive in your daily eblast and parent/guardian email from Chelsea, or you may inquire further by emailing her at: email@example.com
Chelsea is willing to make special arrangements if your friends cannot be dropped off at the church during those windows of time.
SAVE THE DATE - SOUP SUPPER!!!
Our annual Soup Supper song and stories will premiere as a special event from the church on YouTube on December 19th
Watch for more information coming soon
Chalice lighters needed!
Is your family willing to send in a video of you lighting a chalice (or a candle) to be used during our YouTube services?
If so - please send as an email attachment or as a link to a google file (make sure it's 'shareable') to me by December 31st at the latest.
The video will likely have words or music dubbed over it - so no need to say anything. Simply light the chalice and smile :)
In an effort for us to remember seeing faces, and to get to know one another better, I am going to spotlight one family each month in our church newsletter. (SO easy. PLEASE sign up. I promise it will not take much time at all.)
So far we only have 4 families signed up!!! Plenty of spots left.
