SHOUT OUTS! and Reminders
What is the sound of two hands clapping?
Gratitude! Thanks to all who sent photos of your hands doing something you love or the work you do. The slide show on Labor Day Sunday service was beautiful. And it was you. Thank you.
READY, SET, COUNT DOWN!

Any questions contact Christine.
Teachers and RE Volunteers needed!
Answer the call to teach: help our children and youth explore Unitarian Universalist values! You don’t need to be an expert, you just need to be willing to learn alongside our young folks two Sundays a month! For more info, contact Amber.
Sing a Song…Join the Choir!
Do you like to sing? Have you ever sat in a service and thought about being a part of the choir? Spirit of Life Choir, which sings at the 9:00 am worship service, and Chalice Choir, which sings at the 11:00 am service, consist of members of all backgrounds and experience levels–from professional musicians to those who simply love making music with friends. We have singers who read music very well and some who have very little experience reading music, and everything in-between! Both have a great time together learning a variety of musical styles. Spirit of Life Choir rehearses Tuesday evenings, 7:00-8:30, and Chalice Choir rehearses Thursday evenings, 7:30-9:30.
There are terrific opportunities for youth to sing as well! Rising Voices is the choir for older youth and Peace Pals for younger youth. Rising Voices meets Tuesday evenings, 6:30-7:00 and Peace Pals on Sunday mornings, 10:10–10:35 (during Middle Hour).
All choirs are open to anyone interested. For more information contact Brandon Moss (Director of Music and Chalice Choir), Michaela Jones (Director of Rising Voices and Spirit of Life Choir), or Barb Fisher (Co-Director of Peace Pals).
Care Giver Support Group – Organizing meeting 9/24
(additional organizing meeting during Middle Hour on Sept. 15th)
Because several of our community have found themselves in the unfamiliar role as caregiver, we are forming a new support group for caregivers (spouses, parents, grandparent, special needs children, friends, etc.). The first get together will be at the Rusty Bucket on North High on September 24th at 6pm. We will each pay for our own meal. We will have the private room which holds about 20 people (sign-up required). This gathering will be organizational to decide what type of group or groups will be most beneficial, a regular meeting date and time, and format.
For more information and to add your name to the list, please contact Sylvia via email, phone 978-317-0013, or during coffee hour on Sunday.
