News & Upcoming Events

 

New UUCH Bookstore

Our church is starting a bookstore to help more members and friends discover the many excellent books published by the UU publishing houses, Beacon Press and Skinner House.

    We’re starting small to test interest in this venture so initially the UUCH bookstore will be open after the service on November 16, Nov. 23, Dec. 14  and Dec. 21. With enough interest and staffing support, more Sundays may be added.  

    A variety of popular titles for all ages on both UU and general interest topics will be available. Additional titles may also be requested.

    The books will be sold at list price but will save you postage (and an impatient wait for your books). The church will buy the books at a discount which will, we hope, cover shipping and provide a small profit for the church. Payment will be with cash or checks only.  Visit www.uuabookstore.org to create a shopping list for the UUCH Bookstore.


Holiday Activities

Autumn Celebration & Bonfire

Friday, November 7, 6 p.m. at the fire circle near the labyrinth.

    An evening of fun and food. Several members plan to grill hamburgers and hot dogs for everyone. Cider will be provided.  Please bring side dishes, snacks or desserts that can be eaten easily with minimal or no utensils or plates. You may also want to bring flashlights for walking the path to the bonfire and lawn chairs.


Decorating our Church Home

Flames in Winter

The Christmas Miracle

Christmas Eve Service for All Ages

Wednesday, December 24, 7 p.m. in the sanctuary

    Celebrate the miracle of a child’s birth and the transformations possible with the Christmas message of love with familiar carols, a new holiday story, the soft light of candles and the warmth of fellowship. If you can, bring cookies to share after the service. Coffee, tea and hot chocolate provided.


Stories in the Round

Fourth Mondays, 7 p.m. in the sanctuary

$10 in advance and $12 at the door. Doors open at 6:30 a.m.

December 22: Susan Gordon ends the 2014 Stories in the Round series with a mix of seasonal celebratory and sacred stories to close out the year and welcome winter.


These are not children’s stories but children 12 years and older accompanied by a parent are welcome to attend. For more information, contact Fanny Crawford (301-730-1638  fanitsky@hotmail.com).
