Parking at Proctor

Proctor has asked KUUF to park in the maintenance parking lot in the back of the church or to the left of the Maxwell Savage Hall.  We can continue to use the small parking area over to the left of the Chapel, just off the circle – about 5 or 6 spaces.  However, we should make them available for those who may have a problem walking from the other parking lots.  There are maps of Proctor available.  They will be on the table as you enter the Chapel on Sundays.

KUUF BOOK DISCUSSION
Downstairs in the Andover Stone Chapel

Book Discussions

February 19, 2017 – 9:30 AM

 

George Washington’s Secret Six: The Spy Ring that Saved the American Revolution, by Brian Kilmeade and Don Yaeger, 2013.

    “Washington did not really outfight the British, he simply out spied us”  Major George Beckwith, British Intelligence Officer, 1782-1783

When General George Washington beat a hasty retreat from New York City in August 1776, many thought the American Revolution might soon be over. Instead, Washington rallied – thanks in large part to a little-known top secret group called the Culper Spy Ring. Washington realized he couldn’t beat the British with military might so he recruited spies- six of them- to infiltrate New York.  So carefully guarded were the member’s identities that one spy’s name was not known until the 20th Century, and one remains unknown today- known only as Agent 355, a woman who used her wit and charm to collect vital secrets.  These six turned the tide of the war.

Please join us for the discussion even if you haven’t read the book.

ADULT LECTURE SERIES
Science and Religion
9:30am Sundays (except for Book Discussion Sunday)
Downstairs in the Andover Stone Chapel

These audio/visual lectures last approximately 30 minutes, and no advance reading is required.  The classes begin promptly at 9:30 so that we have time for discussion and can allow the members of the choir to practice before service.  As usual, we will not meet on those Sundays when the Book Discussion Group is meeting.  This will allow those who also wish to attend the Book Discussion Group to do so.

All are welcome, even if you can’t attend every week.

 

Questions?  Call Tom Maloof   (526-9889)

KUUF DIRECTORY

The KUUF Member/Friend Directory is easy to update but that can happen only if you let Liz Klingler know of an entry that needs to be changed or updated.  Let her know either at church or by e-mail (dklingle2@comcast.net), and she thanks you.

RESTOCK THE FOOD PANTRY


Sundays, we will collect canned goods and non-perishables to share with those less fortunate, by way of the New London and Andover Food Pantry.

BE A VOICE!

Let your state and federal representatives know that you are aware of what needs to be done, and of what they are doing.  Also, let them know what you think is the right thing for them to be doing, and why.  They get stacks of mail from organized groups that send pre written letters.  The letters that get the most attention, however, are the ones written by the individual constituent -- you!  You'll be hearing more about what we as KUUF might do, but in the meantime, get connected to your representatives.  It's a duty and a privilege we shouldn't forget we have.

FOR THE BODY, AND THE SOUL

Meditation

The Women’s Meditation Group will meet on Tuesday September 6 at Sally Bergquist’s house  and on the 20th at Liz Meller’s, from 3:00 to 5:00 PM.  If you have any questions, please contact Sally Bergquist at 763-4098 or Fran Preston at 526-9623.

---===<<<+++>>>===---

SUNDAY SCHOOL

A feature of our religious education program, as we continue to grow and have more families with younger children, is a 2nd class for infants and toddlers.  It truly takes a village to raise a child.  Please consider volunteering to be care-taker for the infants and toddlers during one or two Sunday services this year.

If you have any questions about the program, please call RE Director Donna Peirce at 763-2516.

Extra Hands needed for Sunday School

At times, depending on the number of children attending Sunday School, an extra pair of hands may be needed.

If you are willing to make yourself available on such Sundays, please put your name on the sign up sheet, which will be on the welcome table.  Choose a Sunday, sign up and if the children’s attendance on that Sunday is over the number that Erin and Donna can comfortably handle they will approach you to help them on that morning.

Mostly you would be asked to help with the children under 4 years of age in the toy room that is set up for childcare.  Holding a little one, chatting with them while they play, and reading books that are available is all that it takes to make these young ones “happy campers”.  (If you would like to help with the older children just let Libby or Donna know your wishes.)

We are so lucky to have Donna keeping things flowing each Sunday for our children.  We know by the children’s happy faces that they are feeling very special and loved.   Please sign up and be a part of this cooperative approach to our children’s Sunday morning experience.
