Fall Religious Education Programming

This Sunday, children and youth will join adults for an All Ages Worship. Youth are invited to sit together during the service, and as always, worship activity bags will be available for busy hands of any age. This is will be a fun and interactive service, and engaging for all!

Adult Forum: This week, Alison Livecchi will share some of the wonderful multicultural and unique books from Barefoot Books that are available as part of Northwoods’ Book sale, and share some history of this progressive company as well as some of her favorite stories. Forum is held in The Garden Room between services, 10:35 -11:25, approximately.

Childcare is available for younger children during and between services, and the family room will be open to parents and guardians who would like to continue to listen to the service while tending to their children’s needs.

Hearing assistance equipment available at the Membership table.

 

 

Sunday Service Times: 9:30 and 11:30am

New Member Ceremony

On Sunday, September 7th, the church will recognize those who have joined during Rev. Ellen’s sabbatical, as well as provide an opportunity for those who have been in discernment about becoming full members of the congregation, to sign the membership book.

It is recommended, but not required, that you have been through a Pathways to Membership class, or have spoken to Rev. Ellen or one of the Board or Committee on Ministry members, before joining. We encourage you to consider, joyfully, what you can pledge in support of the community, and in what ways you feel best suited to serve. Members shape the future of this community through their involved participation, voting, pledging, service, and commitment.

If you think you would like to become a member on September 7th, please let Jamie know you plan to be available at one or (if you are able) both services. Youth are also welcome to participate, provided they are 14 or older, and have either been through our Coming of Age program, or have spoken with Rev. Ellen or the Director of Faith Development (Sarah Prickett) about their sense of wanting to be members.

All are welcome here. We are grateful for those who express their commitment and their connection to this community in this way.

Millbend Coffee House

Millbend Coffeehouse Presents
Emma’s Revolution
September 13th ~ 7:30pm
The long awaited emma’s revolution concert at Millbend Coffeehouse will happen on Sept. 13. Pat Humphries & Sandy O are very creative progressive songwriters– putting into song the most cutting edge issues of the day. They perform almost every year at General Assembly and at many UU churches. When I spoke with Pat at GA in Providence, RI in June, she was excited to be coming to our church. I expect UU’s from all over Houston to attend & I highly recommend this concert to NUUC members.

The Charity of the Evening for the concert will be the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee, so we need volunteers for the kitchen and gate. Please call Teresa at 281-350-3052 if you would like to donate food or time to this event.
