CYRE Registration for the Fall
There are so many students that aren’t registered for the fall! There will be a table set up this weekend for last minute registrations, but this will be the last Sunday for that! We still need assistants for the fall, so if you are interested in being an assistant in one of our six RE classes, please email Kelley at dre@uucolumbia.org.

High School Youth Group Resumes Meetings Sept 7
The Sunday youth group begins a new year with its first meeting on Sunday, September 7. They will be making posters for the Pride Parade, which will be September 20.

Spaghetti Lunch for Mentors & Coming of Age Students
The High School classroom will be hosting a spaghetti dinner to meet their mentors following the service.  
The pairings will be announced after lunch followed by some Deep Fun activities.  Throughout the school year, mentors will join us for numerous RE lessons, social action events, and help plan the Bridging worship service.  A large theme for the Coming of Age curriculum is working to integrate the High School youth into the greater Congregation upon graduation from the RE program.  We will also be learning to articulate and practice our UU values.  

Assistants Needed for the Fall
We still need assistants for our six(!) RE classes this fall. A sign up sheet is available at the CYRE registration table and a
Sign Up Genius page is available online. Please contact Kelley at dre@uucolumbia.org with any questions or to volunteer.

Mark Your Calendars for Fall CONs
The dates have been set for fall youth CONs at The Mountain Retreat & Learning Center. More details and registration deadlines will be available in the near future, but registrations must go through the DRE and registration deadlines will be approximately one month before each CON. The cost is around $115 per child/youth and $25 per adult, and we’ll need 2-3 chaperones/drivers for each CON.
