WEEKLY NEWS & EVENTS
Hospitality Teams. I want to send out a big Thank You to the Service Stars for providing food, coffee, and fellowship for the past four weeks. Lets welcome the Ever-Red-E's for the next four weeks as our host for hospitality.
The Blessed Bees Team needs a new communicator as Chris Morrissey has asked to step down so he can concentrate on his school work. The Communicator position contacts team members and sets up the schedule for the four week shift. Anyone interested in stepping up to this leadership position should either contact Linda Eller or Chris Morrissey for more information.
Happy Healthy Heroic Hoofers
Hey, Hoofers!!! Thank you!!! If you parked at South Hills and hoofed it up to the Fellowship even one Sunday morning in the past nine months, it is very likely that the space you saved was used and appreciated by someone else. And if you rode the bus or your bike, or walked from home, that’s even better ... it was actually a little crowded at South Hills a couple of days!
By mid-June, you can start parking again in our own lot. Fewer people will be attending on Sunday mornings, and we’ll get back the parking spaces that have been occupied by construction vehicles, building materials, etc. And the grass along the driveway should be okay to park on if necessary.

New Sharing Circle Being Formed,
Sharing circles are the small groups of UUs that meet as part of the UUFCC Small group Ministry program. The sharing circles usually meet once a month and have about five to ten participants. We currently have several evening groups and one daytime group. If there is enough interest we will try to start an additional daytime sharing circle in the fall. Please contact Bev Henshaw or our minister, Mark Hayes, if you are interested in joining such a group. Anyone who would like to learn more about the program is invited to attend an introductory Sharing Circle facilitated by Helen Volz on in Lower Classroom 1.

The Fellowship Relations Committee has begun to meet regularly after several inactive years. The purpose of the committee is to serve as a resource for making the Fellowship a more loving and accepting place. The committee members are Helen Dempsey, Margaret Blizard, Manfred Keume, Caitlin Sager, Ralph Seeley, and Barb Seibel, with Rev. Mark Hayes and Jean Wiant, CRE, DLRE as ex officio members.
The committee seeks to create an environment in which the possibilities for reconciliation are increased and in which we are invited into new ways of relating to each other. The committee will provide opportunities to enhance communication and conflict management skills; empower people to manage their own conflicts; mediate conflicts between people; serve as process observers and facilitators for UUFCC committees; and arrange for outside intervention if needed. Conflict, if properly managed, can be an opportunity for change and growth
We need UU and U for assistance during our building expansion.
