UUCG Book Group
Wednesday, October 23rd at 7:00pm
in the UUCG Library
The October 2019 Book Group selection is Daughter of Fortune, by Isabel Allende.
“Daughter of Fortune is a sweeping portrait of an era, a story rich in character, history, violence, and compassion. In Eliza, Allende has created one of her most appealing heroines, an adventurous, independent-minded, and highly unconventional young woman who has the courage to reinvent herself and to create her hard-won destiny in a new country.”

All are welcome. Please bring a snack to share with the group.
Trunk or Treat
Friday, October 25, 2019 from 5:30 – 8:00pm
Join us for our annual Halloween event during which costumed children wend their way around the parking lot, visiting cars with decorated trunks and collecting candy or small “prizes”. T or T provides families with an alternative (or addition) to door-to-door trick or treating!
This event is a great way for UUCG families from around the county to celebrate Halloween together, and with our local community, as all are invited to participate.
This year Trunk or Treat is combined with Family Game Night, so you can expect even more fun and games for all ages!

Belief Exploration is a group of Unitarian Universalists and others who are interested in exploring the sources of world faith traditions.
We have no prescribed theology and honor each person’s spiritual path toward enlightenment and reason. The focus of this group will continue to evolve over the course of the program year.
We invite you to join us if you have an interest in theological writings and would like to learn and share your views in an open, accepting environment. We meet after the worship service on the second Sunday of each month in the Laboratory.
