Please Take Great Care at the Spiritual Growth and Development (SGD) Wing Entrance
The winter has brought some significant shifting, rising, and falling of the concrete slabs near the SGD Wing Entrance, creating a potential trip hazard. The impacted area has been marked with paint and safety cones, but please take great care when entering and exiting the building. Additionally, the automatic, handicapped door is currently broken. Those needing the use of an automatic door should enter and exit through the Main (north) Entrance over the next few weeks. Questions? Contact Thom Bales in the Church Office or at

Emergency Contact Info Needed
The UUAA staff is in need of your emergency contact information in the event that something happens to you while at the church. This information is critical for everyone, especially for those who live alone or have no relatives in the area. We will place blank information forms in key locations throughout the building. The form is blue and simple to fill out. Please take a few minutes to complete one and return it to the Involvement table, the Pastoral Care table, or the church office. If you are injured or become ill, we as a congregation want to provide immediate support and care.
Khasi Hills: Still Knitting
We have completed nearly half the total sweaters needed to ensure that each of our Khasi Hills students receives a sweater. The teachers have let us know that they are mostly in need of the smaller sizes. So if you are inclined to keep knitting, please do sizes 4 and 6. The project is on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Knitting-Up-a-Storm/261128913912663 and links to the suggested pattern in both a knit and crochet version. Please friend us if you haven't already.
