Our Whole Lives Program for Teens and Tweens
It is our tradition here at UUCG to offer specialized youth programs annually, on alternating years. This coming spring (2018), Faith Development will be offering O.W.L. for 7th – 9th grade students.
O.W.L. stands for Our Whole Lives. Developed by the UUA and the United Church of Christ, OWL is a sexuality education curriculum available for ages 5 through adult. At UUCG, we present the program for adolescents. OWL is more than just a lesson in the nuts and bolts of sex. It is a program designed to model and teach caring, compassion, respect, and justice. OWL addresses the values and feelings that youth have about themselves and the world. And your community of faith is a great place to start this conversation.
We require a minimum of 6 enrolled youth to hold the program. If you are interested in learning more and attending a parent orientation this fall, please contact Christiana McQuain.

Gift Cards for Corley Elementary School
This community has continued to be very generous to the students and parents of Corley. The school has no PTA, and we fill in and support the parents and students several times per year. The drive for gift cards begins on 11/19/2017 and ends on 12/3/2017. For the convenience of the students’ parents, Corley counselors are requesting gift cards only from Walmart this year. They also are requesting cards be $25 or less. There will be a decorative box in the foyer and one at the back of the sanctuary where the coffee is kept. Thank you from the Corley Committee! Questions? Please contact Toby Lyles at email@example.com or 404-449-6241.
