Members of the Worship Team will host the church's annual Wassail Celebration Sunday, December 3rd, from 9:15 to 10:15 am in McNear Hall. You, your family and friends are invited to gather around the Wassail Bowl between church services to sip a cup of punch and exchange salutations of good will and good health. Part of the fun is to sample holiday treats which are traditionally served in our homes, so bring a plate of cookies or other Christmas favorites to share. If you can bring cookies, let the office know (297-1181).

Waes Hael, Middle English for Good Health, is pronounced Was-sail. It refers to the greeting or toast, the punch that is served, and the party itself. Waes Hael!

During this season of waiting and anticipation, we are planning a special time of song, crafts, alternative gifts shopping and goodwill for family and friends. Starting during Coffee Hour and extending through Sunday School: 9:15 am to 12:00 noon.

Shop Fair Trade and Alternative Gifts Bazaar. Donate in someone's name to Heifer International, Habitat for Humanity, or Church World Service. Purchase from Café Justo, Equal Exchange, SERRV, and N4NC. Everything from chocolate and coffee, to handmade baskets and metal work. Something for everyone!

Shopping continues on December 10th!

On Wednesday, November 22nd, join with others in community as we give God thanks for our blessings and share our bounty. You may bring non-perishable food for the ICS food bank.

 

Forum

      

 

The Fall Forum Series continues Nov. 19th with a presentation on the planet Mars by UA media specialist Ari Espinoza. He will discuss the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter mission and the HiRISE 3-D camera which have greatly expanded scientific knowledge about the planet.  The HiRISE camera team broadened the outreach and impact of the project when they allowed the public to recommend specific camera targets on Mars. Drawing from "The Beautiful Mars Project" Espinoza will show results of the public's involvement with the images. The mission has been successful in bringing the science of the red planet to people around the world.  Espinoza is the co-author of Mars: The Pristine Beauty of the Red Planet. The book is available locally.  The Forum will be presented in McNear Hall from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm. The program is free and open to the public. Light refreshments provided.

Casas Adobes UCC is located at 6801 N. Oracle Road between Ina and Orange Grove. The Forum is free and open to the public. For further information call 520-297-1181 or go to www.caucc.org.
