Announcements

Remembering Veterans in our Cemetery: The Cemetery Trustees appreciate volunteers after the service to place flags at our veterans grave sites. Please join them in the Grove Street parking lot after the service. They will provide maps of locations and flags. With enough help, it should be done in 15 minutes or less!

Fellowship & Fun! Rev. Allison is putting together a team to make sure there are a few fun events for the congregation each year. This will be a "low meeting, high fun" team that will only meet twice a year to come up with a few fun events for the upcoming months. If you like to have fun or if you have great ideas for fun events or you want to make sure we're having fun around here, please speak with Rev. Allison or send her an email at minister@uunashua.org

Starting Points: Program for Newcomers  A Small Group Experience for Newcomers

Led by Karen Thomas and Rev. Allison Palm. Starting Points is a four month small group experience designed for folks who are new to the UU Church of Nashua. We will explore UU theology and history experientially, beginning with your story, and then moving into conversations and activities to help better understand the story of Unitarian Universalism and this congregation. At the end of the four sessions, the group will have the option to stay together as a Covenant Group through the end of the year. The group will meet on Thursdays, November 15, December 20,  and January 17 from 7:00-9:00pm in the Chapel. Please sign up at https://uucn.breezechms.com/form/dc4798
