News & Upcoming Events

 
Spiritual and Intellectual Enrichment?

          The worship committee is exploring additional programing to supplement Sunday morning services, including adult classes; a film discussion group; and workshops, seminars and lectures with outside speakers.

          To meet UUCH needs, the committee needs input from members and friends. A survey is available on the cabinet in the back of the sanctuary and on this website. (Click on enrichment survey link.) Please give your completed survey  to a worship committee member (Dean or Tam Brocious, Donna Catling, Liz Jones, Yvonne Pfoutz or Dodie Ruskie) by Sept. 14.

          Information about some adult RE courses is available on line (www.uua.org/re/tapestry/adults) and as handouts on the sanctuary cupboard.  Lists of films on LGBTQ and social justice topics are also on the sanctuary cupboard.

          Many UU churches have a “bookstore” after Sunday services, where people can peruse and purchase new UU-related books, usually at list price with a small profit going to the church. Since this requires an investment of time and money, the committee needs to know if members and friends would utilize a church bookstore and if anyone is interested in helping with it.

          The survey also asks for suggestions of possible topics and speakers for programs outside of Sunday morning.

Donate Children’s Books in September

       Bring new and gently-used books for children from infancy through age 11 for the September book collection at our church. Put your book donations in the collection box in the sanctuary foyer.

          This is the third annual children’s book drive, cosponsored by HARC (Hagerstown Area Religious Council), United Way and the Rotary Club. Last year over 12,000 children’s books were collected and distributed to 36 community organizations and schools to get them into the hands of at-risk children

          If you’re not familiar with children’s literature, here are some suggestions: 1, 2, 3 Count With Me by Naomi Kleinberg;  Animal Colors by Beth Fielding; Baby Faces by Margaret Miller; Chicka Chicka ABC by Bill Martin; Chuga-Chuga Choo-Choo by Kevin Lewis; Curious George by H.A. Rey; Duck on a Bike by David Shannon; Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crockett Johnson; How I Became a Pirate by Melinda Long; I Stink! By Kat McMullan; Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel by Virginia Lee Burton; Oops! By David Shannon; Sheep in a Jeep by Nancy Shaw;  We are in a Book by Mo Willems;  Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak.
