Coloring Study Break
The study break/stress break is today - Wednesday, December 5, 11 - 1, in the Hendrix Student Center Atrium. We have large murals and boxes of crayons. Folks will be invited to stop and color and de-stress. We will need help. Mariah is lining up helpers.
LCM Christmas Party
Our student gathering is Friday, December 7, 6:30 pm. Bring a snack to share, wear your ugly Christmas sweater, and pick up a gift for the nasty-Santa give exchange ($5-$10 range). Feel free to invite friends.
UniLu Christmas Dinner
The congregation's Dinner is scheduled to allow you to participate. It is Sunday, December 9, 5:00 pm, at Eternal Shepherd Lutheran Church, Seneca. We will drive the van; be here and ready to leave at 4:30. We make "stockings" out of paper grocery bags and members of the congregation fill them up at the dinner. Stocking making supplies will be in the LCM Lounge starting December 5.
Exam Week Study Break
We have our own study break opportunity, over lunch, in the LCM Lounge, the week of exams. There will be sandwich fixings and chips and such for a free lunch. We will play Phase 10 - you can join the game for one hand, for one day, come a day late, etc. It is a good way to return to reality during a stressful time. 11 am to 1 pm. Each day.
We offer a simple but filling meal Monday - Thursday of Exam Week. Dinner is served at 5:30. You can come and eat and run to your next study group, or hang around and enjoy the support of others.
Caroling - Monday, December 10
After the Exam Meal, we will load up the van and go sing at the homes of some of our UniLu elderly and shut-ins. Speak to Daniel if you know you will participate. You can join the group that evening.
Advent Observances - Wednesdays
UniLu will host Advent meals and worship on Wednesdays. These begin December 5, and will also serve as our Exam Meal on Dec 12 (note that meal will be at 6:00 pm). After dinner, we will gather for Holden Evening Prayer.
UniLu Congregational Meeting - This Sunday
On the agenda is the election of three Council members and the adoption of the 2019 budget. You are encouraged to participate; student participation in congregational decisions is very important. The meeting will begin at 9:45 am. In the Sancturary.
We do need to get some idea of how many plan to join us for the January 18-20 outing to Sugar Mountain. We have a house for twelve. If more want to go, we do need to make arrangements. Here is the sign up form - Jan 18-20 Ski Trip.
