Special Interest Group Events
We come together for Sunday worship to shape and define what is of value and worth to us. Our services focus on topics of spiritual, social and current concerns. We come together to sing, meditate and share our lives with one another. Our worship is designed to meet the diversity of spiritual paths that are embraced within Unitarian Universalism. Sunday services offer a celebration of community, an intellectual challenge and a deepening of the heart. One Sunday a month during the September-May church season we gather for breakfast at a local restaurant. All are welcome to join with us.
Our Services are held from September thru May generally at 10:00AM at The Jewish Community of Sedona & the Verde Valley, 100 Meadowlark Dr, Sedona. Exact dates and times of the services appear below.
The newsletter is now published on a monthly basis only. It is being sent on the second Thursday, following the monthly board meeting and will include a recap of those items discussed at the board meeting. The change is due to policy in place regarding the newsletter. All those persons that have information that needs to appear in the newsletter MUST have said information to the editor, Michelle Snyder, no later than 5:00 PM on Thursday evening of the publication.

Memoir Writers' Workshop
This writer's group was started last year by Willma Gore and Rev.Glenn for SUUF members and friends. The group was opened to additional participants outside SUUF and has resumed again this year under the mentoring and leadership of Louise MacDonald who was part of the group last year. Louise has a rich history of writing and editing including several books, short story collections, writing and editing for Life Magazine and much more.
We have room for two or three more to join the group. We meet on the second and fourth Fridays of the month from 10:00-noon at the Sedona Winds library. Interests of the group in addition to memoir include the "new autobiography" which includes fictionalized aspects with the memoir, poetry, and personal essays.
Contact Louise MacDonald if you would like more information or are interested in joining the writing group. Email at email@example.com
I have volunteered to coordinate the efforts of people willing to serve as Greeters/Ushers/Welcome Table attendants and Coffee/Snack Table helpers. I’m hoping you’ll all help enhance our services by volunteering for these throughout the year. This is a great way to serve the congregation and get to know others a little bit better. We need at least 2 Greeters/Ushers/Welcome Table attendants and at least 2 Coffee/Snack Table helpers. If you are available, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks! Virginia Crothers, Caring Committee

Remember, all you have to do is let the Caring Team know if there is anyone out there in need of a helping hand, some encouragement or just a card, even if it is yourself. If you do nothing, the Caring Team can do nothing! They will do the rest. And we will all be the beneficiaries.
