The Songs of Summer

The Songs of Summer by Joel Simpson

“Crickets begin their magical tune; Ladybugs jig for the joy of June.
Dragonflies dance as they dart by; Their whirring wings sing a lullaby.
Bumblebees buzz a melody sweet. Caterpillars tap their many feet
Oh, happy hearts beat just like drummers as June brings on the songs of summer!”

Let’s welcome summer as we share and celebrate poems about nature and the environment.

June Split Plate – Moms Demand Action

This month’s plate collection will be split evenly between UUCCH and Moms Demand Action. All cash, and checks, and online/text giving, unless indicated for some other purpose (e.g. Stewardship) will be divided. Moms Demand Action is a grassroots movement of Americans fighting for public safety measures that can protect people from gun violence. We pass stronger gun laws and work to close the loopholes that jeopardize the safety of our families. We also work in our own communities and with business leaders to encourage a culture of responsible gun ownership. We know that gun violence is preventable, and we’re committed to doing what it takes to keep families safe.

Online Art Gallery – Spring 2021

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.
