Message from the DRE – February 24, 2021

Hello and Bright Blessings!

We are gearing up for a busy spring at UUCT! Your staff has been hard at work developing some special events and programming for the next few months.

We are staying with our regular schedule of first Sundays off from all children and youth programming but starting in March we will be offering a self-directed RE lesson for our kiddos to explore if they’d like. Our first lesson will be about outer space and will be available on Sunday, March 7th. Details will be in The Meridian.

Moving into April, we will have a weekend full of fun activities for Easter:

  • Friday, April 2nd our youth group will resume our once-monthly bonfires on first Fridays at the church. Details will be communicated to youth via the group text and to parents and caregivers via email.
  • On Saturday, April 3rd, we will have a no-contact Easter Egg hunt from 1:00-3:00 PM. This will be structured very much like our Halloween event and will require pre-registration for timeslots. An email with details and the signup form will be sent in the next few weeks.
  • And on Sunday, April 4th we will celebrate Flower Communion with a multigenerational worship service via Zoom.

And on a personal note, at the end of April I will be traveling to Tennessee to marry my fiancée, Paige (pictured above with me and Henry) in a small ceremony in the Smoky Mountains.

Paige and I met soon after I moved to Tallahassee in 2019, and as most of you know, I moved here for my job at UUCT, so THANK YOU for this and all the other amazing ways that you bring joy and love to the church, the RE program, and to everyone involved in the community. The reach of the church’s ministry is so much greater than any of us can imagine.

I am so looking forward to all this and so many more adventures with you in the coming months!

In Service,
