Ministry for the Month of October

Choir  & Music Ministry Team

Music Director: Nina Swanson
Description: The music ministry is a hub of love and companionship for each other and the congregation as a whole.  Our goal is to lift up a force for renewal, healing, joy, and peace through the beauty of music. If you want to sing in the choir or play a musical instrument, see Nina.

UCR Fun Club

Sunday, November 3 after service.

Tracey Supplee is coordinating a "Fun Club".  The idea is for members of the congregation to spend time together outside the center in social activities.  The first adventure is to the Amama Colonies on Sunday, November 3 after service.  We will be dining at the Ox Yoke Inn and need to confirm the number for lunch.  Contact Tracey (319-202-7519) if you would like to join in the "Fun".  After lunch, we will stay and do some holiday shopping. Carpooling is available.
