2020 Fall Film Series


Following up on the enthusiasm for the Summer Film Series, UCCPH and Pastor Tracey are excited to announce that we will have a Fall Film Series! 


The theme for Fall will be Inspirational Stories. Most of the films are suitable for the Family, and this festival features many “oldies but goodies!” The planned schedule is below:

2020 RMC Annual Celebration videos   

 

From Pastor Tracey

 

Here are three of the most poignant sessions from the Rocky Mountain Conference Annual Celebration this year [2020]. Each of these sessions is worth your while and I encourage you to watch them, or if you saw them, to watch them again:

 

Live talk with Rev. John Dorhauer


Racial Justice in the RMC conversation

 

Keynote Session by Rev. Susan Thistlethwaite

Wednesday Happy Hour Church Chat @ 4:30 p.m. each week, on Zoom


VOLUNTEERS NEEDED:

1) coordinator to recruit hosts, and

2) HOSTS for the Wednesday Happy Hour Church Chat!


Sign up to host on an upcoming Wednesday – it’s EASY… maybe bring a question or topic of interest, toss it into the middle of the ZoomRoom, and see what happens! Contact Pastor Tracey or Meredith to put your name down for an upcoming Wednesday Chat Host slot, or to take on the coordinator role! Hey – both are EASIER than the pre-pandemic equivalent for coffee hours!

Bring a book and borrow a book!


We now have a Little Library


Please:
1. Wipe down your book, CD, or DVD with a disinfecting wipe;

2. Remove any of your identifying information from the book (name, telephone number, etc.);

3. Bag it in a closeable or ziplock-type baggie.

4. There is not enough room for you to bring a whole bunch of books, CDs, DVDs, so just bring one and take the same away;

5. If the library is out of room, please do not leave the book on the ground or on top of it or on the bench or patio--just put it back in your car and try another day. No one is tending to the library to clean up after you or others who leave the books lying out exposed;

6. Please make sure the books, CDs, or movies have some redeeming social value--no porn or x-rated, racist, sexist, anti-GLBTQA, ridiculously violent, political, satanic, or heavy sexual content. 
Litmus test for sharing your book, film, or music: Could this book be read aloud in our church or in adult education class? Could this CD or DVD be heard /seen at our church or in the adult education class?

Pick three people out of the church directory: 

 

It's suggested you pick one you know well, one you know but not well, and one you don’t know at all.  Call them, or email them, text them, or send them a card.  In our WHY Teams we are asking ourselves, “What do I need?” and then “What can I offer?”  This seems to be a good model for your contacts with others. 

 

Consider dropping food off:

Parker Task Force or Help & Hope Center and other food banks need extra support right now.  Drop off non-perishable groceries (in bags please) to Bob and Holly Jay, or Shirley Wick, for Friday deliveries to the Help & Hope Center Food Bank.  

 

Help & Hope wishes for toiletries, especially feminine products.
