Wise Words, August 2019

I am thrilled to share with you that we will be doing a one-day END OF THE SUMMER FUUN DAY CAMP with Unitarian Universalist Society of Iowa City/Coralville.

This camp will be held August 16 at the Main Lodge at Lake McBride. The programs will be nature related—naturally since we are going to be at a lake.

It will begin at 9:00 AM for children ages 6-12. Families are invited to join starting at 3:00 PM. We will share a potluck meal at 6:00 PM and closing worship at 7:00. The cost is $15.00 and that includes a t-shirt. Campers will bring their own lunch and snacks will be provided. Registration is limited. Email David at dre@peoplesuu.org to register.

This camp is the result of a conversation that started in our Faith Formation Council and continued with my colleague in Coralville. Hopefully this is the beginning of several joint ventures between our two churches and other UU churches in Iowa over time.

It is always good to get together with those that have similar beliefs and goals. It will be good for our kids to get to know the kids from the church in Coralville. It will be good for them to know there are other kids their age facing the same issues and having the same concerns! I look forward to this camp and more events to come!!

Harry Potter camp has been fun for the kids so far and I am sure they will have a great time this week as well! There will be kids Harry Potter trivia contest to conclude the camp!

Don’t forget the PANCAKE BREAKFAST on September 8th. There will also be a BLESSING OF THE BACKPACKS in the September 8th service!

Faith Formation Classes will meet for the first time in the new church year on September 15th! September 8th all families and children will be helping with the Pancake Breakfast!

In Peace,
David
