eNews for Wednesday, July 18

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.

Worship Matters

Please plan to join us for worship this coming Sunday, July 22 as we continue our Summer Worship Series “Sharing the Stories of Living Our Faith,” with a reflection and discussion led by our minister, Dawn Daniels.

For Unitarian Universalists, the question is never “What do you believe?” but rather “What kind of person have you become? What are the fruits of your living? [...] Our faith is focused not on what we believe, but how we love.

~ Marilyn Sewell

You can read more about our monthly theme as well as explore some supplemental resources here. And if you happen to miss being in worship on any given Sunday, the texts to previous sermon messages (and some of the readings as well) can be found in our website sermon archive.

Fire and Tornado Safety Procedures

The Board has adopted safety procedures for tornado and fire situations.
They are:

Tornado Warning Response

  • Upon receipt of a tornado warning, congregants should proceed to the Green Room or the Hallway adjacent to the Sanctuary or the Basement.
  • Children should be brought to those locations by RE personnel.
  • People with disabilities will be assisted by designated congregants.  
  • Congregants are asked to remain in place until there is an all-clear notification.

Fire Warning Response

In the event of a fire or fire warning, the safest response for congregants is to exit the building.
  • Congregants in the Sanctuary should exit through the double doors
    in the back of the Sanctuary. Doors open inward.
  • Occupants of other rooms should use the nearest safe exit
    as designated by the wall signage.
  • People with disabilities will be assisted by designated congregants.
  • Children will be directed to the nearest safe exit by RE personnel.
  • Our Church designated meeting area is in front of the Library.
    This is where parents should meet their children. 
Once a year, go somewhere you have never been before.
~ Dalai Lama
