Everyone at CUUC is invited to enjoy the Youth Group's Quest Room, which reflects their Superhero theme. It's open to all! Groups of 4-6 individuals are recommended.
YOUR QUEST: Graduation is fast approaching at CUUC S.H.I.E.L.D. Academy! However, intelligence has been gathered that Hydra agents are planning a campaign in the next few weeks to make sure that the next generation can not stand in the way of Hydra’s quest for world domination! It is up to our heroes in training to find out where and when the campaign will take place. If you can complete this final mission you will be considered ready to take your places amongst the great heroes of our age!
Each group has one hour to complete the quest. Start with the first clue, solve it, and find instructions for the next clue. The room will have up to ten clues to solve. At the end of that hour, please follow the instructions to reset the room for the next group. Sign up here. ENJOY!! Questions? Contact Raquel Belkin, email@example.com.
Interracial Worship Webinar
Sun May 1, 11:45am, on Zoom, Viewing in Fellowship Hall
Interactive Webinar: What's Race Got to Do With It? Creating Safe Spaces for Interracial Worship
Facilitators Rev. Lane Cobb and Rev. Eugene Holden will lead an online conversation designed to support traditionally white faith-based organizations that are committed to creating interracial worship communities. The guided webinar will help congregations learn to identify blind spots that create hidden barriers to attracting people of color, deepen their commitment to creating an open and welcoming community, and create a preliminary plan for building interracial worship relationships. Sponsored by the CUUC In the Spirit of Truth/Racial Justice Team. Contact: Jeff Tomlinson (firstname.lastname@example.org).
