UPCOMING EVENTS

Friday, April 21 @ 7:00 pm – Meaningful Movies in Kirkland – Racing Extinction

(2015, Directed by Louie Psihoyos, 90 min)

 

Scientists believe we have entered the sixth major extinction event in Earth’s history, following the fifth great extinction that took out the dinosaurs 66 million years ago. In the present age, called the “Anthropocene”, it is possible that humanity’s footprint on the planet will cause the loss of half of all species by 2100. And humankind is the only species whose behavior can change what we’ve started.

Saturday, April 22 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm – Northlake Women’s Group April Meeting ~ Bellevue Botanical Garden Docent Tour

 

Happy Spring & Happy Earth Day. All Northlake women and friends welcome for a guided tour of the botanical gardens. Carpooling is encouraged and can be arranged. Please RSVP to Judy J.

Saturday, April 22 @ 11:00 am – 5:00 pm – Social Justice Detention Center Vigil

 

You’re invited! Up to 1,575 undocumented immigrants are held in this privately-owned, prison-like facility prior to deportation. Many want to stay in the US and apply to immigration court for relief from removal, a lengthy process that can take up to years for a decision. At the vigil we offer refreshments, information, and a listening ear to family and friends who come to visit a detainee. We set up our canopy outside the fenced facility. Please email Fran W.  We like to carpool from the church, leaving at 11:00 am and returning by 5:00 pm.

Sunday, April 23 @ 12:00 pm – Congregational Meeting

 

Northlake Unitarian Universalist Church will hold a congregational meeting in the Sanctuary following the church service on April 23. All members are encouraged to attend since we have important business and a quorum is needed for official votes. If you have any questions about the meeting you can contact the Northlake Board of Trustee President, Janelle D. or email the full Board of Trustees and Rev. Marian at board@northlakeuu.org. If you want to review the church bylaws before the meeting, they are on our website at: http://northlakeuu.org/northlake-uu-bylaws/

Grief & Loss Support Group

 

Wednesdays @ 1:00 pm

 

Grief is something that lives with us. Some losses have been in our hearts for a very long time and some losses are new. Anticipating losing someone is also a loss that can be difficult to navigate. Even if we know a person is expected to die, the pain is still present. For some, holding onto the grief is a way to hold on to the person who has died. It is helpful to know that the person’s spirit can be with us forever regardless of how we experience the loss. In this support group, people will be encouraged to talk about and remember the person, the loved one, who has died or is close to death. We’ll tell stories of remembering, bring pictures, and share from the heart. For more information or to let someone know you are coming, please contact Ilene S.

1st & 3rd Saturdays @ 9:00 am – NUUC Men’s Group

 

WE WANT YOU…To consider becoming a part of the Northlake Men’s Group.

 

The Men’s Group exists to promote friendship and community among the men of Northlake Unitarian Universalist Church. This is not your ordinary men’s group! There aren’t many rules, just to be your authentic self. Men of all ages are welcome. Breakfast is served at each meeting. We typically meet on the first and third Saturdays of each month, from 9:00 – 11:00 a.m. The locations vary, as one meeting each month is hosted by different members of our group, usually in their homes, and the other is a “BYOB” (Bring Your Own Breakfast) at the church. Breakfast is followed by a check-in (what happens at Men’s Group stays in Men’s Group) and discussion of a topic of interest selected by the host or agreed upon by the group.

 

RSVP required for hosted meetings, not for BYOB.

 

Contact Steve R. for further information.
