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.

Caring Candles

Ann Winfree has been undergoing testing at Beaches Baptist Hospital due to some medical problems she has been experiencing.  Plans are that she will be recovering in a rehabilitation facility for a while before she returns home.  She was scheduled to be released to Brooks Rehabilitation South, down near Baptist South, on 9/19/17.  Please keep her in your thoughts.  Also, cards would be most welcome.

UUCJ Work Day: Saturday 9/16 @9am

There is a good degree of clean-up required at the church after Irma hit this last weekend. Please join us Saturday, 9/16/2017 @ 9am to help with the clean-up. There is a lot of yard/tree debris so bring lots of heavy work-gloves, saws (if you have them), rakes, shovels, trucks for hauling (if you have one), rubber boots might be a good idea as well. Some inside work will be required as well. Please come and help make the church building & grounds beautiful again and ready for this Sunday’s service!  There will also be a work party after service on Sunday, to help with whatever doesn’t get finished on Saturday.
