Our goal is to intentionally design and shape our ministry journey with a monthly theme. Themed ministry is a tool that adds vitality to our journey by aligning our conversation across all the different ministries in the church. This allows us to essentially “travel together” as a community of seekers, sharpening our relationship to one another and to life through common reflection. For example, our teachers are encouraged to weave the same monthly concept into their classroom lessons that the adults are hearing from the pulpit in worship.
The Chalice Circles (which is our small group ministry) is another chance to explore these ideas in-depth with adult peers. Our “Mindful Meetings” will begin all of our team meetings with the same monthly focus to connect and energize us before we enter into our particular church work. We believe that thematic ministry can be spiritually deepening, and that we could even have more fun, more ease, and more connection among us as we explore them! What could be better?

Remembering the Wider Gifts and Grace of Life
Please join our lead teacher, Jo Gall, and the 1-5 graders, as they lead us in celebrating the traditional UU Bread Service performed at Thanksgiving each year. This year we will explore the gifts and grace of the family memories we each have! Your family is invited to bake a special holiday bread together and bring it to share with the Columbine Community at the service.

Looking Back and Bringing It Forward
In times of challenge, one of the most important things to do is look for the wisdom our ancestors have left for us. As we sing these lyrics of Ysaye M. Barnwell: “I am wanting memories to teach me to see the beauty in the world through my own eyes,” we will join in a retrospective looking for the gifts and grace our ancestors have left inside our very beings. Rev J speaks. Choir sings!
