ADULT RELIGIOUS EXPLORATION
Join us as we explore what it means to be a UU in our Adult RE series, “Faith Like a River.” Come explore the course of UU history—people, ideas, and movements that shape our faith heritage.  Sunday mornings in the MacArtor Library, 9:15–10:15 am, September 30 through November 11. No registration necessary. Drop-ins are most welcome – coffee provided!

This Sunday in Adult Religious Exploration: Ripples in the Water: The Evangelists Mary Higgins leads this workshop looking at how our faith history helped our movement to grow. We may not think of ourselves as an evangelical faith, but many have worked to intentionally spread Unitarian and Universalist thought. This Sunday, we’ll explore ways we can continue to make our heritage a living history. Let’s talk about it.

Speaking of Adult Religious Exploration….
Join us for our Adult RE Team Meeting!  We’ll be locking in our offerings for Winter/Spring and hearing your ideas and suggestions for new class offerings. Hope to see you there on Sunday, November 11th, 12 noon to 1 pm in the MacArtor Library.

November 30 Family Fun Night – 6:30 – 8:00 (Every Fourth Friday) 
Mark your calendars!!! The Roots and Shoots Friends (together with the RE-Imagineers) are hosting an evening of fun and awareness and you are invited! We will be showing the movie, “The Lorax,” and raising awareness and funds for “Jake’s Diapers.”

Jake’s Diapers, Inc. solves diaper need for infants, elderly and those with special needs. This is essential for clean, healthy and active lives and creates a sense of dignity. When we alleviate the ongoing financial burden of diaper costs, we empower recipients to pursue a higher quality of life.  Funds raised will benefit infants and elders of Vieques Island, a municipality of Puerto Rico.  Since 2013, Jake’s Diapers has provided diaper solutions for people of all ages in over 20 countries.  For more info, check out jakesdiapers.org
