All of Us – A Blessing of our Creature Companions

Furred, finned, scaled or feathered; legs in sixes or fours, twos or none; wings and tails — our companions from the world beyond humans are precious to us, and we are grateful for all the blessings of love they bring into our lives.

COW Continues to Collect Books

COW (Community Outreach Work) continues to collect books for BookSmiles. Book Smiles gives children in NJ the opportunity to build personal libraries. The program also provides educators with free books for their classroom libraries. New and gently used children's books can be donated. Culturally divers books are appreciated. In addition grown up fiction and non-fiction books can be donated. The UUCCH drop off bin is outside at the top of the ADA access ramp behind Unitarian House. Thank you for your continued support of BookSmiles!

Editor's Note: Here is an Amazon Wish List of books you can have delivered right to the Church at 401 Kings Highway North, Cherry Hill, NJ 08034.

Fall Faith Engagement

The new catalog will be out in the next few weeks. The Next Guided Labyrinth Walk is scheduled for October 1st.  Please join us at 7pm! The UUA Common Read coming this fall! We will be reading Breathe, so grab a copy when you can!

September Split Plate – CFET

This month’s plate collection will be split evenly between UUCCH and The Center for Environmental Transformation. All cash, and checks, and online/text giving, unless indicated for some other purpose (e.g. Stewardship) will be divided. CFET is an environmental justice organization located in Camden, NJ, one of the most polluted areas in the state.  We serve our community with an environmental advocacy program that seeks to keep residents informed of their environmental rights and a youth focused urban farm that helps to train tomorrow’s community leaders.

Congregational Forum Scheduled 10/3

An email was sent on Thursday, 9/16, to inform the congregation of a Congregational Forum taking place on October 3rd following the service. Please read the full email here.
This has been such a long, difficult year of Covid restrictions and isolation, and we all miss being together in person, together in our UUCCH community. Many of us are getting vaccinated now, and people are feeling more confident about being with others, so it might be safe to begin getting our community back together.  

We are officially opening up the church grounds between 2 pm and 4 pm on any Sunday afternoon, weather permitting, to gather for connection outdoors on our beautiful property. Bring a chair and set it up in the parking lot, or bring a blanket and spread it on the lawn below Hillside. Walk the labyrinth, explore our wood-chipped paths back into the Arboretum, watch the birds, enjoy the flowers …. catch up with old friends and make new ones, so that we begin to restore all those community connections we have all been missing so much!

And remember, the church grounds, including the labyrinth, are always open for you to enjoy from dawn until dusk, individually or in small groups, on your own schedule. So stop by on any Sunday afternoon (weather permitting) starting May 30 at 2pm, and let’s be together safely, bringing us all back to what really matters.
