christmas-cookiesOperation Cookie

For the third year, the Membership Committee is organizing Operation Cookie, to send Christmas cookies to members of our congregation who would appreciate some home baking and Christmas wishes. We are looking for other bakers to join us in making cookies. Please bring your cookies to church on December 11 before the service. We will package them up, and have them delivered that day or in the days following. If you could help deliver cookies, stop by our table at coffee time on the 11th.

This is becoming a lovely holiday tradition and we hope you will help us make it memorable this year.

Nominations for the Panabaker Award

In January 2017 the Unitarian Church of Calgary will present the Panabaker Award to someone in the congregation to honour them for extraordinary services provided to benefit the Church community. In order to do this we need your nominations. Please check the guidelines and list of past award winners. As well as new nominations, we welcome resubmission of previous nominations, as there have been times when we have had more than one deserving candidate and only one award.

Nominations may be e-mailed to Board Secretary or placed in the Secretary’s Mailbox in the Church Office. Nominations must be received on or before December 15 to be considered.

Every year this visually stunning calendar is “An inclusive and comprehensive source of information for those who want to learn more about world religions.”

Unitarians Stand Up for Trans People

When 11 year old Anthony heard "stand up, stand up, people of grace” in an anti-trans rap from an Alberta mom, he was offended. This is not, in his opinion, what religion is for. He invited Unitarians from across Canada to join with him in sending messages to trans kids. And they did!

And here are the folks at the Unitarian Church of Calgary showing their support.

A Unitarian Universalist and Evangelical Christian on a Plane

What do Unitarians believe if we don't follow one set of doctrines or religious teachings? Here is a simple, heartwarming, and eloquent story that will open your eyes to the Unitarian Universalist tradition - a religion that is spiritual, principled, and welcoming to all beliefs, colours, creeds, and gender orientations.
