Earth Heroes and Heroines

Lay Leader: Susan Grace Speakers: Various UUFF Members

Join us as we celebrate Earth Day by coming as our favorite Earth Heroes! Come dressed as your favorite Earth Hero, with a short info statement about who you are, where you are from and why you are an Earth Hero! We will make time to interview and hear from all of you!  This is a very fun service and perhaps may draw some heated discussion between our attending heroes.  Last time we had a bit of challenge between John Muir and Sigrid Olson, due to opposing thoughts and philosophy on conservation.

Our Adventures in Malawi

Lay Leader: Doug Toelle Speakers: Marilyn Russell and Miriam Paquin

Miriam and Marilyn will tell us about their experiences in Malawi.  The offering today will benefit the Malawi Children’s Village inAfrica.  The school there has many needs.  Three students share one book, as they crowd into a two-person desk.  The dedicated teachers struggle with very limited resources.  The black boards are so scarred that they are barely legible. The money collected will help benefit the school and their hope for the future.
