February 2018


ImmigrāshCON – February 9-11, 2018 (A youth CONference for students in 7th-12th grades)

An opportunity for both a fun and educational experience. The theme is based around the modern issues surrounding American migrants and our current government administration’s push to end immigration into the U.S. Unitarian Universalist youth will learn about current struggles of immigrants and our call to action. There will be activities both educational and fun, including: guest speakers, videos surrounding immigration, workshops such as baking and yoga, touch groups, and a variety show.

$45 per youth. Partial Scholarships are available through UUFM. Register online at https://onrealm.org/smuuchurch/PublicRegistrations/Event?linkString=MDE2YmQ4MTktYzNlOS00MDIwLWE4OTctYTg0NzAwYjVhMDU2

Our Whole Lives is in full swing. OWL 7-9 started in January and the group of 13 teenagers is very lively and engaged. They meet in the Jupiter room every Sunday from 12:30-3:00. Thanks for giving them their privacy and using a different door to exit the building. OWL K-2 starts February 3 and then runs every Sunday from about 12:30-1:30, until March 11. If your family would like to participate in future OWL course, please contact Sandy at 341-0135 or dre@uufm.net.


Our next Parent Night Out (Kid Night In) gathers on Friday, February 2, from 6:30 to 9:30 pm, at the Fellowship. Parent Night Out is designed for children from 3 to 12 years old who can toilet on their own with minimal assistance. We watch a movie and have some popcorn. Games and art projects are available.  A $5 per child contribution helps us cover expenses. Dinner is NOT served at Parent Night Out. Please be sure your children are fed before arriving. This is an RSVP event and space is limited. Please RSVP no later than Thursday, February 1, so that Sandy can gather supplies and make plans.


We get a treat in March. The Swensons are leading classes for a few weeks and helping our youngest members build birdhouses!

See you soon,
