What you missed during break

We’ve installed our Little Free Pantry, built by the children of UUCC! We would love it if your children bring something for the pantry each time they are here. Dry goods, canned goods, and toiletries are all needed and welcomed.


Parents are invited to attend the video nights on April 23rd and May 7th while your eighth graders attend OWL. See below for more info.

Several upcoming events for you to know about!

UUCC Family Game Night and Potluck, Saturday, April 22, 5:30-8:30 pm. All ages and all types of families (including individuals!) are welcome! Please bring a game from home and a dish to share (if you are able). RSVP and sign-up for the potluck here. Hope to see you there!

How do we raise Daughters who are strong and confident?Miss Representation

Join us for the video and discussion on Miss Representation, Sunday, April 23, 5:00-7:00 pm. All parents and caregivers are invited, suitable for children and adolescents fourth grade and above! Childcare available for children below fourth grade.

Miss Representation exposes how mainstream media and culture contribute to the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America. The film draws back a curtain to reveal a glaring reality we live with every day but fail to see – how the media’s limited and often disparaging portrayals of women and girls makes it difficult for women to feel powerful and achieve leadership positions.

On May 7th, we will watch and discuss The Mask You Live In, which follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America’s narrow definition of masculinity.
