The first step this year in our partnership with AHE was to place a Teacher Support Cabinet in the school. We want to fill it with items that teachers normally pay for themselves. If you want to add items, please bring them in to the bin in the social hall. As the teachers fill out the “wish list”, items will be requested. Contact person is Jennifer Tucker: [email protected]

UU 101: Back to Our Future
A 4-part series with Phillip Baber
Oct 15, 22, 29 & Nov 5, 2017
Sundays, 12:30-2:30, Anthony Room, UUCJ
We come to the Unitarian Universalist Church through many paths and faith traditions. Yet we all come to UUCJ to “spread our wings” and explore new spiritual realms without censure. UU 101 provides the history and context for us to understand our past as we build our future. We will learn about our UU spiritual and ethical development; where our covenant and principles come from; and of our own beloved community in Northeast Florida. Please plan to attend all four classes. For more information, contact Phillip Baber and to register, contact Lois Hoeft at [email protected] ~ 904.477.8320, or register online at uucj.org/grow. Childcare available on request by Oct. 5.
