Come celebrate life in this service on death. The first part of the service will be a celebration, featuring our Halloween parade. Please wear a costume to this service. The latter part of the service will be more reverential, as we remember those members of our UUCO family and our individual families and friends who are no longer with us. Please bring a memento or photograph of a loved one who has passed away.

What Can We Learn from the Secrets of Sloths?
Guest Speaker is Maya Kaup, Gail Stratton is service leader
Join us for a service focused on appreciating nature and identifying what we can learn from animals to make our own lives more fulfilling and fun. Maya Kaup, a graduate student in the Department of Biology at Ole Miss, will be taking us on a journey through her trips to Costa Rica to study the secrets of sloths and the unusual microorganisms that live in their fur. Enjoy photos taken from her trips to the tropics, stories of her sloth-catching adventures, and learn about sloths and how they can teach us a thing or two! In addition, we will be joined by the UUCO chorus for The Rainforest Song!
