An Invitation to visit my congregation with me this Sunday
I’d like to invite you to visit my congregation with me this Sunday, 9/18/11.  Our Lead Minister, Doug Kraft, will be giving a talk related to the spiritual theme of “Selflessness.”  He will draw on Buddhism and Unitarian Universalist spiritual sources.
There will be special music, and refreshments and conversation after the service.  Our new Music Director, Eric Stetson, will be there.
 It’s the Unitarian Universalist Society of Sacramento, located at 2425 Sierra Blvd.  Our website is  Services are at 9:30 am and 11:15 am.  The services are identical except we have child and youth programs at the early service.  (More below.)  We have nursery care for children through age 5 at both services.
It’s a good idea to come 10 minutes early to find your way  in, receive a name tag and fill out a simple guest card, and find a good seat.  The congregation likes to get to know our guests, so plan to stay after for refreshments and conversation. 

We have Religious Education Programs for Youth & Children, and this Sunday is when they get started for the new year.   At 9:30 AM service, we all start out together in the sanctuary.  15 minutes later, children from grades 1-5 go to the Spirit Play room and youth go to the Junior High Youth Group and the Senior High Youth Group.    The programs end at 10:45 AM.  Our Sunday School program just began for this church year, so this is a good time for teenagers and kids to check out our programs and start to make friends here if they like what they experience. 
There is a new brochure about our programs, with color photos from some recent activities with kids and teens.  There is also a Handbook for Religious Education Programs.  Both are available before the 9:30 AM service starts, at the RE Welcome Table.
We have several classes for Adult Enrichment also:  Easy Yoga, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, Immigration as a Moral Issue, and Fencing for All Ages (no joke!).  There is an Adult Enrichment table in the church lobby where you can find out about these classes during the refreshment time after the services.  Let me know if you have any questions!
