Childcare for younger children is available from 10:15am to 12:15pm in the Blue House. Please join us for coffee, treats and fellowship immediately following the service.

    10:30am Service: Calling Our Clergy:  Why Is this All so Ministerious?
    Speaker: Janine Larsen
    Celebrant: Deb Miller
    Cascade UU Fellowship is entering a time of discernment about “calling” its Developmental Minister, the Rev. Laura Shennum, to “settlement.” What in the world does that mean, and how does it change anything? Janine Larsen, UUA Congregational Life Staff, will share what she’s learned about healthy ministry in her 10 years supporting ministerial transitions in the Pacific Northwest. She’ll give us some food for thought as we begin to reflect on the future of our shared ministry with Rev. Laura.
