Sundays at 10:00 a.m. unless stated otherwise

June 7th
The Challenge of Unitarian Universalist Theology
~~ Del Carpenter, Diane Winkey (WA)
You can’t really believe just anything and be UU. Exploring some things we are not and some things we do hold.

June 14th
Whatever Happened to Civility?
~~ John Miller, Bill Chene (WA)
With all the email, twitter and texting that goes on, it is easy to say things to someone without seeing the reaction our words have on that individual. Add to that the chaos of the twenty-four hour news programs, civility seems to have become obsolete. We will explore what is happening and how UUs can help temper the dialog.

June 21st
Father’s Day ~~ Bill Chene, Karen Impola (WA)
What is it like to be a single father? A Father’s Day discussion on being a dad in America today.

June 28th
What It Means to be UU
~~ Four CVUU members, Callie Amiday (WA)
Enjoy the perspectives of four members speaking about their ideas of what it means to be Unitarian Universalist.

July 5th
Freedom is a Funny Word
~~ Diane Winkey, Krista Saylor (WA)
Freedom is liberating, confusing, a feeling, a word with multiple definitions and many possibilities for each of us.

July 12th
Streets to Dwell In ~~ Krista Saylor, Diane Winkey (WA)
Exploring the value of community in our neighborhood.

July 19th
Creation and Creativity for Spiritual Growth
~~ Jessica Lieb, Maureen Murphy (WA)
Jessica will discuss the impact that creativity has on the world at large—not only creativity in the artistic sense, but in the greater concept of “creating” an idea or action. As sentient humans, we shape the world every day with our actions and decisions—how can we improve our lasting impressions on Earth? What sort of “creator” can we be?

July 26th
The Faith of a Trapeze Artist
~~ Del Carpenter, Diane Winkey (WA)
Involving our will and imaginations more than our minds, living with faith is being willing to let go of the old and grab on to the new.


June 24th -- 28th in Portland, OR
The theme for GA 2015 is Building a New Way. Most events will be held in the Oregon Convention Center at 777 NE Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd., Portland, OR 97232.

Caring Connections

Caring Connections is a way to help others in need whether it is a phone call or a ride to the doctor.  We are here to help, and will be available through the summer.  Our meetings are the first Sunday of every month at 11:30 a.m. after fellowship.  This is an open meeting; anyone can join.

Our contact persons for the month of June will be Pam Hays for the first two weeks and Priscilla Nieman for the last two weeks.  The July contact has not yet been decided.  We will continue to update.

If you would like to send a card for a birthday or for any reason, we have a card table located in the Fellowship Hall.  We are also looking for more people to become committee members.  If you are interested, please email or call me at <legiond13@gmail.com> or (319) 961-1901.

I would like to say thank you to all the very generous people who have dedicated themselves to making sure that the goals of the Caring Committee are carried out.  Without your help this would not have been possible.  Thank you.

Sam Saylor

Caring Committee Chair


Any musicians interested in playing music at a summer Sunday service should contact Jessica Lieb via email at <musicdirector@cedarvalleyuu.org>.  Music doesn’t need to be service-specific and all talents are welcome and encouraged!  Now is the time to give it a try!

The Progressive Parenting Playgroup meets in the church nursery on Mondays from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. and will continue through the summer.  Talk to Candace, Callie, Michelle, or Krista for more information.

To get on the email list, please let the church office know.  All are welcome.


During the summer, join us each week at 7:30 p.m. on Thursdays in the balcony for meditation, walking meditation and discussion of Buddhist topics.  Come at any time and give it a try; all are welcome.

This is a great group to which to invite a friend or neighbor, someone who might enjoy having a place to meditate.  Come explore the living dharma with us.
