Multigenerational Life

We are building and playing here at RRUUC in a robust network of dynamic, caring, and loving multigenerational relationships. And we are thriving. As a Unitarian Universalist Association staff member offers “We need the wonder, awe and fresh eyes children can bring. We also need the questioning, testing, sometimes “why can’t we?” spirit youth can bring. We need the idealism, creativity and energy young adults can bring. We need the experience, skills and leadership middle-aged adults can bring. We need the wisdom, memory and depth elders can bring. We need it all, not in isolated silos and affinity groups, but mixed up together—week in and week out, holding us, worshiping with us, teaching us, challenging us, inspiring us.”  We can do both — learn, serve and play in age groups (Children, Youth, Adult) and also strive to build on that most unique gift of congregational life — the blessing of all the generations mixing it up.

All Ages – Bazaar: Saturday, November 4, 8am-3pm: Sign up to help or stop by to shop.

The Bazaar is one month earlier than in past years, the 2017 Bazaar will once again find our building and property transformed into a well-stocked department store full of high quality, gently used, donated goods sold at great prices.
In addition to the sales departments.

The Bazaar includes a Silent Auction of valuable donated items. Browse through the display of Silent Auction items, bid on your favorites, and check back to see if you are the lucky winner! (There will be several closing times throughout the day.)

Shoppers need sustenance! Snacks, lunch, beverages, and baked goods are available throughout the day!

The Bazaar provides affordable merchandise for shoppers from the greater community, as well as a large group of repeat bargain hunters and dealers. Our Bazaar serves to fund the work of our congregation and is a major event powered by several hundred hard-working volunteers. In our continuing commitment to the environment, we actively recycle all we can to other organizations after the sale.
