CONGREGATIONAL CAFE You are invited to attend a Congregational Cafe immediately after worship on April 26.  The Council has received a well-considered proposal for a permanent outdoor memorial to commemorate UCC founders and other loved ones who have passed.  At the Cafe, these plans, including a design, will be

previewed and feedback invited.  A final decision on whether to move forward with the memorial will ultimately be put before the congregation for a vote.

 

WHERE IN THE CITY IS ROBIN?  On Tuesday, April 14th, Robin will give the  benediction following the Holocaust memorial presentation by Col. Philip S. Freund, a Holocaust survivor. The event is at Newman University Dugan-Gorges Center at

7:00 pm. It is free and open to the public.

You may remember that one of the goals in our strategic plan and one of Robin’s performance goals is to increase UCC’s presence in the community. As part of that goal, we are sharing some of the places Robin has been or is going. Feel free to invite Robin to have a presence at groups/events you know about. We want to share the good news of what UCC has to offer as often as possible.

 

UCC TRIP 2016! Are you interested in traveling to Italy, Greece, Turkey, or

another location where early Christianity was born with Robin and your UCC friends?   Come to a planning/ brainstorming meeting on Monday evening, April 27th at 5:00pm in the downstairs conference room.  Bring your suggestions and calendar and we’ll explore the interests of the group.
