Illuminations Dinner and Program
Mark your calendars and send in your RSVP, which will be coming very soon. This warm, family friendly event is one of the few holidays that is uniquely Unitarian Universalist. We acknowledge and celebrate our history as a religion and a congregation, illuminating and uniting our hearts, minds, and spirits as an intergenerational community of faith in which we love and are loved. Don't miss it! For more information and to volunteer, contact Jon Bassinger-Flores at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Laugh Out Proud
In February, Laugh Out Proud is celebrating Black History Month with special guest host Pat Branch. We’ll be featuring black comics this month, so please come and support our Welcoming Congregation outreach program. Our ongoing program reaches out to the LGBTQ community, introducing many of them to Unitarian Universalism for the first time. Doors open at 7:30 PM and show time is 8:00 PM, Saturday, February 3. Drinks are free and donations are given to the comics. Volunteers are needed to set up the bar, run sound and for clean up after the show. Please contact Karen Renee at Priestesskarenrenee@gmail.com for more information.
Don’t miss this opportunity to connect with people who are looking for community and possibly a church such as ours.
On February 10, we are having a special kind of Family Night. It will be a Valentine's Day Parents Night Out. You drop off the kiddos on Saturday, February 10, at 6 PM. Then, go have a nice night with your Valentine. Return by 9 PM to pick up your kids.
For the kids, it will be "Pizza and Movies." We'll have a G-rated movie for the youngsters in the World Room, and we'll do something PG/PG-13 for the older kids in the Sanctuary. I am looking for two people to hang with the youngsters and one or two people to help out with the big kids and the pizza making. Please RSVP with the names and ages of the kids you'll be dropping off. A donation of $5 per child will cover costs. No one will be turned away due to lack of funds. Contact Brian Bielanski at email@example.com or call (310) 220-5693.
