Gatherings and events

Fall cleanup

Saturday, September 2 from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

We're holding an all-building cleanup to get our building spiffed up for the coming year.  Vicki Roberts-Gassler and Craig Cyr are in charge.  Please contact them with times that you can help. With a great turnout, each person will hopefully only spend a couple of hours of their time here.  

Blood Drive at EUUC with Muslims for Life 

Saturday, September 2 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Come to help with the annual cleanup, have some lunch, and give blood - not necessarily in that order, but any way to works for you.  On this day, we partner with our Ahmadiyya friends on the Muslims for Life Blood Drive with the American Red Cross.  Please contact the EUUC office to get information on how to schedule an appointment.  

Tomoko Maki in Concert

Saturday, September 9 at 7:30 p.m. in Chapman Hall

Ingathering weekend will begin with a solo piano recital by our amazing pianist, Tomoko Maki. The concert will take place in Chapman Hall on Saturday evening. All proceeds will go to the EUUC general fund and tickets will be available at the door.

Announcements

The Black Liberation Front of Seattle is hosting a gathering

Black Lives Matter March Against Hate and Racism will take place at Westlake Park in Seattle on Saturday, August 26th from 6 to 8 p.m. This gathering will be family friendly and very accessible. Everyone is welcome. #Love Defeats Hate.

Sharing your love and solidarity, one person at a time

In response to the Charlottesville VA violence, one of our members made a badge which he intends to wear as much as possible: “I Stand Against Racism.” It might not seem like much, but individuals see it, and it ripples outward. He has received positive responses so far, and encourages others to do similarly. Imagine how far the ripples will spread if more of us do this! You can make your own badge, with whatever words express your values, this coming Sunday, August 27, in the atrium. Sponsored by the Peace & Justice committee.

Ushers needed for Sunday services

It's not a surprise - we will be having two services starting September 10. This means we need four ushers each Sunday. Would you like to contribute in some way to the workings of the church - but time is an issue? Have you thought of being an usher? The duties are putting out hymnals and collecting and totaling contributions. What you do is very much appreciated and needed.

Social Justice Book Donations

Do you have copies of books on social justice topics that you would like to donate to EUUC? Please bring them to the Social Justice Desk in the Narthex. We are especially interested in copies of Between the World and Me, Just Mercy, and Born a Crime, that can be used for future Reading Circles.

Register Children Now for Faith Development

Ingathering is fast approaching, so don’t forget to register your kids for our Faith Development program. Registering helps keep Faith Development running smoothly by making sure we have accurate and up to date information on important things like birthdays, allergies, and emergency contacts. You can find the form here.

New time for early service starting on Ingathering on September 10

Faith Development classes move to the early service time (9 a.m.) on September 10 (Toddler Care available at both services)

After much discernment and discussion, the Board of Trustees has approved moving the Faith Development Classes to the early service starting with Ingathering Sunday, September 10.  Toddler Care will still be available at both services. In order to ease the strain on the parking lot, and cause less confusion about our start times, the early service will start at 9 a.m. The late service will follow at 11 a.m.  

Weekly Family Email

Our Minister for Faith and Justice, the Rev. Cecilia Kingman, sends out a weekly email update about the week's programs and other special announcements. If you have children under 18 and would like to receive this weekly message, send a note to Cecilia and include your children's names and ages, and your name and contact info.

Registration Open for Children and Youth

Registration is now open for Programs for Children and Youth. Please visit our website to register your child or youth, or stop by the office for paper registration. All children ages one to 18 should be registered.
