UCC 2013 Lenten Schedule
Thoughts from Dee:
It can never be said enough for me, that Lent, here at UCC, Casper is not about gloom and doom, nor shame and guilt. Rather, it is an opportunity for deeper reflection and discernment. . . about life. . .and our place in the scheme of things. Please consider spending some time to sit together and grow in spirit, community and calling.

Easter Basket Raffle
I think I hear the pitter-pattering of hopping, little bunny feet! I DO! I DO hear hopping little bunny feet!
And guess what? That little bunny is filling Easter baskets right here for us to raffle off!
It looks like the bunny is filling three baskets – an adult basket, and two children’s baskets – one for a boy, one for a girl – all with handmade, handcrafted surprises!
And the best part is the raffle tickets are only a dollar each and all proceeds go to UCC-Casper! So you’ll have lots of chances to win your favorite and help a good cause at the same time.
Tickets will be available for sale by Sunday, March 17th; see Loraine Powell (aka Idea Queen) or Ann Miller for tickets.
