Church, let us love God and trust Him with all our hearts. He is for us and He desires to bless us-- He is the Blessing. Such joy and peace and love and freedom, everything is found in Him. Nothing can separate from the love of God that is found in Christ Jesus.
Meet Lucas - Lucas is here this weekend and wants to spend time with you! Please email him (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like to meet up. Also, always feel free to reach out to him for his time and wisdom, by email or in person. He's totally available for his beloved UCW family!
Ideas? - We've got news for you: UCW is now officially registered with Yale (thanks, Kai!). A part of what that means is that we can now apply for the UOFC funding. If you are serving UCW in any capacity and would benefit from reimbursements or new purchases (eg music equipment, Sunday school materials, baking supplies for an event), please talk to our treasurer, Stephen Kim (email@example.com). Also, if you have any fun and creative ideas for UCW to put this funding possibility to use, feel free to let me know!
Praise Team Interest? – If you are interested in joining the praise team this year, please email Andrew (firstname.lastname@example.org). We're especially looking for someone who knows how to play drums (or is willing to learn)! Thank God we get to worship Him with music!
Sunday School Teachers - We are looking for volunteers to teach Sunday School NOW. There are lots of children that we can love on, and it's really great way to serve KM who always serves and prays for us. Please contact EK (email@example.com) if you want to help out or have any questions!

------- WEEKLIES --------
Sunday Service -
Godpod - One of the main components of the UCW community, Godpods are men's and women's small groups that come together once a week for 1.5 hour to experience the fellowship of the body in a more close-knit setting. We study the Word together, share and pray for one another's lives, and encourage each other to apply the week's sermon to our lives.
· Upperclassmen Godpods: There are men's Godpods on Monday and Wednesday evenings, and women's Godpods on Wednesday evenings and Friday evenings. If you're interested in joining one, please firstname.lastname@example.org.
Prayer - Let us gather together to pray for one another, for UCW, for this campus and for God's kingdom. Whatever's on your heart, come and share. Monday/Wednesday/
· Other times and locations for the all-campus prayer are: Mon/dayWednesdays noon on Beinecke Plaza (or Commons Rotunda in case of bad weather); Tuesdays, 8:15-9 am in WLH 14; and Thursdays, 10 pm in WLH 9.
Fellowship Dinner (aka DGC party) - A group of UCWers get together to eat every Tuesday at 6:00 p.m. inCommons. Come join us!
God, He is good! Life is good, people. Even tough times will soon be past and we are all the more seasoned and refined and stronger and more alive. See you all on Sunday :)
