Hmm…what to do, what to do… Well, how about putting in your name for membership in one of UUCLR’s great committees? The Nominating and Leadership Committee is working on filling the spaces on committees that will be vacated at the end of the church year on July 1, 2017.
Strategic Planning, Memorial Woodlands
Nominating & Leadership, Endowment
Committee on Ministry, Board of Directors
We would love to consider you for one of these positions if you would like to serve. So pick your favorite spots and let us know. Below you will find the openings that will be available. You may contact the office or, more efficiently, one of the committee members, and let us know what may appeal to you. We will provide you with detailed information on each position and its responsibilities and can answer any questions you may have.
The Nominating Committee members are: Kater Reynolds, Dawn Harris, Kay Danielson, Miranda
Keith, Nathan Roberts and Mindy Morrell, your President-Elect. We hope to see you on a committee soon!
Open Forum with Transition Team II
The new Transition Team will hold an open forum with all members and friends of the congregation who would like to ask questions or provide their input about possible changes in the UUCLR buildings. This will take place right after service on February 26 in Thomson Hall. So grab your coffee and bring your questions!
Game Nights - Sponsored by UUCLR Interweave
(LGBTQ and Friends)
Bring a favorite board game, card game, etc., or
just come and play along. Also, bring your drink of choice and snacks to share. Interweave members will host the game PICTIONARY, set up tables for playing, and be responsible for cleanup.
The next Game Night will be on February 18 at 6:00pm off site. Please feel free to bring a friend that you would like to introduce to UUCLR, in a different and fun way!
For information regarding the meeting place, please email the church office: firstname.lastname@example.org
Want to Learn CPR?
There is the possibility of
having a MEMS CPR training session at UUCLR. We would need to have at least 15 people
interested in taking the training. MEMS offers this 4-hour training free to participants and child care will be offered by the church.
Trainees would learn to recognize when CPR can be a life saving measure and how to perform it. MEMS has found that survival rates are far better when people on site can start CPR immediately. This does not require mouth-to-mouth contact, just rapid compression of the heart.
If you would like to participate, email the office at email@example.com and give your name and contact information. If we meet the minimum, we will be in touch with everyone once the class has been scheduled.
Veggie polucks are on the 2nd Sunday of the month. Please think BIG as you prepare your dish to share. This is a chance to explore vegetarian cooking, reduce our carbon footprint, and learn some new dishes. It is also a chance to grow our generosity!
We like to be able to invite all guests and members to break bread with us at our monthly potluck. We know that many guests or visitors will not be aware that we are hosting a potluck on that day and that some of our dearest friends will also forget to bring something. So, to show our hospitality, consider bringing a dish that will serve at least twice or even thrice what you might ordinarily contribute to a potluck. Remember how good it feels to be fed and how good it feels to feed other
How to Donate to RE
Would you like to know how to support our Religious Education (RE) program that doesn't cost you a cent?
It's easy, sign up for a Kroger card and whenever you shop there, use it. It gives us a rebate each time you shop. It's not a credit card, just a store card. It won't affect your earnings for lower priced gas either. Our last fiscal year brought in $767.
You can sign up on line at Kroger.com and then once registered, click on your name on the top right side, go to Account Information and choose Community Rewards. Edit and search for Unitarian Universalist Church of Little Rock, our organization number is 80317. Thank you for taking the time to make our RE even better!
Special Film Series for Forum
Forum has begun its viewing of a 6-part history of Unitarian Universalism brought to us from the UUA on DVD. We are anticipating viewing one DVD monthly until we get through the set. From the DVD box, LONG STRANGE TRIP is "a six-part series detailing the history of Unitarian and Universalist thought from the beginning of the Christian era to what we know today as Unitarian Universalism. Each film is approximately one hour in length. Part I examines the roots of liberal religious thought prior to the Reformation, including heretics such as Jan Hus. It concludes with the life of Michael Servetus."
Since each DVD runs an hour, on the Sundays of film viewing, we will convene at 9:45 rather than 10:00, so as not to interfere with the worship service at 11:00.
Women's Creative Writing
The UU Women's Activity Group is starting a creative writing
project.All women are invited to join this group of writers from all backgrounds and all levels of training and experience. Each of us will write on a regular basis and willonce a month to share and critique each other’s work. This is an opportunity topoetry, fiction,
