10:30 a.m. Worship Service "Crossing the Threshold" Kaleidoscope Pagan Group

UUCC's Pagan group, Kaleidoscope, will present a ritual to celebrate Lughnasadh, also known as the first harvest. Join us to learn more about this traditional Pagan celebration, and to experience this ritual acknowledgement of the turning Wheel of the Year.

10:30 a.m. Religious Education – Lower Level

This summer we are offering a one-room schoolhouse program centering on the stories of Dr. Seuss. Rising Kindergarten kids through rising 6th graders will take part. Preschoolers will be welcomed in the nursery, and 7th-12th grade youths will be welcomed in the sanctuary or as assistants downstairs. The lessons will come from stories both familiar and unknown.

Our dedicated Religious Education Team is teaching this summer's lessons, but the team needs help. The classroom will require three helpers each Sunday. Please volunteer one or two Sunday mornings to help make the program a big success! Sign up here.

11:45 a.m. First Sunday Potluck

We have begun continuing our First Sunday Potlucks during the summer this year! We gather for loving fellowship and hearty eating after worship so we can get to know each other better and build lifelong friendships. We invite all guests to join us, whether or not they have brought food. Everyone pitches in, making light work of setup, serving and cleanup. We ask those attending to bring a main dish or side dish sufficient to serve six-eight people so we will have plenty of food. To promote sustainability, the Green Sanctuary Team urges everyone to consider bringing their own plates and utensils.

This all-congregation activity cannot be sustained without willing volunteers to help with setup and cleanup. Setup takes place during worship and requires four or five people. Cleanup after the potluck requires six to seven volunteers. Sign up to help. Questions about volunteering for setup and cleanup may be sent to Sunday Morning Assistant Emily Woodall by email.

In addition to your potluck contribution, please remember to bring one or more non-perishable food items for the food barrel upstairs near the coat rack. When the barrel is full, the food is taken to the Central Pantry, which serves Columbia and Boone County.

6 p.m. Kaleidoscope Pagan Group

The Kaleidoscope Pagan Group will welcome any who feel moved by the morning worship service to join us for our more formal evening Lughnasadh ritual at the church at 6 p.m. The ritual will be followed by a potluck, so please bring food to share.
