The Humanist Forum meets every Sunday at 9:30 AM. All are welcome to attend. Join us as we engage in a new topic each week. The Humanist Forum will meet this Sunday in Classroom 7, at our new time of 9:30 AM. We’ll have general discussion; this week perhaps about the general subject of “What is Humanism?”. Some of you may not know that there are three Humanist Manifestos, dated 1933, 1973 and 2003. We can explore some of that history as well as look into what these three documents were trying to say. What does humanism mean to you?
Our Sunday Service begins at 10:30 AM in the Miller Sanctuary. This Sunday, December 8th, we bring you a service entitled The Season is Upon Us.
Our Community Sharing partner for December is the Quality Life Center. Quality Life Center’s Arts, Character and Education (ACE) program provides after school, summer camp, and teen leadership programs to help at-risk youth realize their potential and foster their abilities. Performing arts help build confidence, discipline and resilience, and visual arts provide the opportunity for self-expression. Quality Life Center’s ACE After school Program was named a 2017 National Arts and Humanities Youth Program finalist by the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and Institute of Museum and Library Services. This national recognition established ACE as one of the top arts and humanities based programs in the country.
Quality Life Center Toy Collection
It's that time again! Time for UUCFM to show our support for The Quality Life Center of SW Florida and the important work they do teaching and mentoring children in under served areas of our community. We do this in two ways during December. First, as our Community Sharing Partner for the month and second, by donating toys for their holiday party. They appreciate unwrapped gifts for all school aged children. Please, no toy guns or other items that promote violence! Be aware that battery operated toys are very expensive to play with and are bad for the environment. Kindly bring your donations to church and place them under the Christmas tree in the Sanctuary or in Hobart Hall by Sunday 12/15. Members of the Social Justice Ministry will take them to The Q on 12/18. Let's help The Quality Life Center celebrate a joyous holiday season and let them know that UUCFM supports the work they do, such as after school programs, art and dance classes, summer camp and their almost complete brand new teen center! Thank you!
Sunday's Social Hour happens after the service every week at 11:45 AM. Come join us for coffee and snacks. Newcomers, visitors, friends, and members are all welcome. Sponsoring groups are the Women's Circle and CUUPs. Donations of food, snacks, or cash are welcome.
Member Art Fair & Lunch Fundraiser
December 8th will see the return of our Member Art Fair after the Sunday service from 11:30 to 1:30. Come support our "Artists In Residence" booths. It's an excellent time to bring neighbors and friends. Please support our members' artistic talents and Next-to-New donations booths. Enjoy a $5 lunch of Quiche, salads, dessert, & beverage. Door Prizes and Christmas Shopping. Bring your Next-to-New donations, priced and early to Hobart Hall on Sunday.
