“Why Worship”- Rick Holmgren
UUs have been gathering in our sanctuary for worship at 10:30 each Sunday for nearly 200 years. Why do we do it? What draws us together? What is worship anyway? Please join us to reflect on these questions.

Ministry of Welcome (Ushers): Corinne and Rich Chafey
Shared Ministry of Connection (Coffee Hour Hosts): Dave & Jane Anderson
Shared Ministry of Worship and Arts: (Pulpit Assistant): Karen Schreiber
(Sound Technician):Melissa Mansfield

FROM ALEX 
Someone put a cat shelter outside the parish house by Jodi’s office for the church cat. Thank you to whomever did that. Church cat wasn’t using it and I borrowed the shelter last week for an outdoor cat who decided to live on my porch. He’s warm but I know I need to return the shelter soon. Could the person who left the shelter please contact me so I can say thank you for its use. (revalexholt@gmail.com)

We passed out index cards at Sunday service for people to list what they think the 4 pillars of UU’ism in Meadville might be. I’ve gotten a few back and hope for many more. You can get the cards back to Jodi or give them to the pulpit assistant next Sunday. You can also text or email your 2 word “pillar” statements to me.

Last week I sent this photo to board, staff, and others at church. I invited people to imagine they were first time visitors and came through the front doors of the church. The vestibule could look more welcoming and inviting. The church cat normally isn’t there. How would you make that entryway more inviting and welcoming? Send your ideas to me via text or email. Some great ideas have come in already but we’d love to have yours as well.
