Generosity in Action: March 2018

Jennifer TuckerThe Generosity in Action honoree for March is Jennifer Tucker! Jennifer has been a hard-working leader within our church community, heading up many committees and projects within UUCJ. It is her third year leading O’Leno as Registrar or Director — so stay tuned as she helps to create an amazing adventure for us this year! Jennifer was co-chair of the LDC (Leadership Development Council), which created the leadership workshops in the much-lauded Journey program last year. She led Special Events for three years, managing the annual parades that UUCJ participates in. She is on the Committee on Ministry, and has envisioned and spearheaded our partnership with Arlington Heights Elementary. Jennifer has invested countless hours in enhancing the community experience for all of us over the years, and we are grateful for all she’s done!

Women of All Ages

Our women of all Ages group will meet Thursday March 22, at the Regency Square Library at 5:30 in the evening in one of the large meeting rooms.  Please come and share with us how you became a Unitarian and came to be a member of UUCJ.  This will be a great opportunity to get to know some of your fellow members and for us to know you.

Weekday Book Club

The book selection for Monday, April 2, is the novel Killers of the Flower Moon by David Grann. It is based on the true-life story of wealthy Osage Indians who began dying in large numbers under mysterious circumstances in 1920s Oklahoma. The meeting is at 1:00 PM at Books-a-Million near Regency.

Earth Day Choir

Anyone who likes to sing is invited to join our choir for our annual Earth Day program on April 22.  Rehearsals will begin on Sunday, March 11 at 12:30 in the chapel.  Music readers and non-readers are welcome.  Rehearsal CD’s are available so you can practice at home as well as each week at church.  For information and encouragement speak with Sharon Scholl.

First Sunday Labyrinth Walk

We’ll be mindfully walking our labyrinth on Sunday, March 4, 10:15 to 10:45.  March is the month of the Vernal Equinox (March 20) with the light growing longer and coming into balance with the dark.  So too, we can walk to bring insight and balance into our lives. Join us!  Beginners welcomed!  (We’ll next walk April 8, after Easter Sunday.)

All Ages Gardening

Come play in the dirt with people of all ages! Alice Shinkos will be leading us in some “Green” beautification! This Sunday we are prepping the land and getting the soil ready for some planting later this month. We plan on planting Florida natives and building on what the Youth of this congregation have already started. This activity is for everyone, so come dressed to play in the dirt! See you Sunday at 12:30pm in front of the campus. Contact Tyler Burley with any questions.
