Families,

 

This year, consider making the MLUC All-Church Potluck on 2nd Saturdays one of your family meals.

 

Since 2003, Columbia University National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse (CASA) has found connections between the health of family relationships and the frequency of family meals. Teens whose families had mealtimes together reported they are more likely to seek parental support & confide in either or both parents. Teens who dined more frequently with their family reported less stress than teens who had two or less weekly family meals. Teens who dined 5-7 times per week were twice as likely to receive ‘A’s in school and less likely to use tobacco, marijuana, and alcohol (CASA 2003-2012).

 

Lets make family mealtime a regular practice at MLUC.

 

RSVP and let us know what you'll bring on April 13.

MLUC Members Art Show
April 7 - April 28 palette 1482678 960 720

This year’s theme is: What I Care About. Your subject can be something that speaks to the environment, justice and peace, the people or places you love, or whatever moves and inspires you to create. Whether you make art every day, once per week, or only one masterpiece per year, we want your work in our show! MLUC members, friends, and youth are welcome to participate. It is always so amazing to see the talent and creativity blooming, sometimes secretly, in our congregation!

Intake will be on Sunday, March 31 in Greeley Library before and after the 10:00 a.m. service. Bring one or two pieces, any medium, wired and ready to hang. Bring your painting, photography, collage, fabric pieces - any way you express art! Let us know if you will need a pedestal to display your work. If you wish to provide an artist’s statement explaining the subject of your work, please email Sabine Rehm in advance. Two dimensions are preferred but 3-D artists may contact Barbara Bugliani to inquire about exhibition space or for more information about participating in the show.

Look for Visual Arts Committee members in the Atrium on March 17 and 24 to answer your questions.

Support for the Worthy Now Prison Ministry

The Holidays can be particularly difficult for those who are in prison. The Racial Justice Committee needs your help in supporting the Church of the Larger Fellowship* (CLF) and the Worthy Now Prison Ministry Network to spread holiday cheer by sending cards to the nearly 900 CLF members who are incarcerated across 42 states. 

 

How You Can Help
Bring unaddressed Holiday Cards and/or stamps to the Church beginning Sunday, October 21 through November 18. Drop off cards in the decorated Holiday Box on Sundays or place in the box in the downstairs donation closet during the week.

 

·         Cards must have plain white envelopes with no decoration.

·         Cards and envelopes should not have glitter or be embossed.

·         Cards should have a short message, such as “We have not forgotten you.” or “Thinking of you this holiday season.” 

·         Use a black pen.

·         Sign your first name but not your last. Do not include your address.

·         Cards must have plain white envelopes with no decoration.

 

Children will help with this effort on November 4, designated as a Faith in Action Sunday, as they stamp cards and write greetings during their Sunday Morning classes.

 

We will forward cards to the CLF staff and volunteers who will address cards in December.

 

*CLF is a UU congregation without walls, connecting people all over the world for spiritual growth, worship, learning, and mutual support. Its Prison Ministry supports the belief that all people are worthy of love, respect, and support — not at some future time when we are better people — but as we are right now.  https://worthynow.org/
