Who Writes All of These Announcements, Anyway? We realized that not everyone is aware of how things end up in our published media. Except when signed by a minister or member of the office staff,  Chalice Chatter and Sunday Announcements have been created and submitted by our Members, Friends, and Allies and have been only minimally edited by the church office for clarity. Questions about helping edit the Chalice Chatter? Please contact office@uuoakland.org
Sun., Dec. 16, POP-UP Choir in the Sanctuary, 9:15 AM  
Want to join others in joyful song? Our POP-UP Choir is for Singers AND Non-Singers. We’ll learn two easy songs and sing them together during the service. It’s not recruitment for regular Choir and there are no extra rehearsals or an ongoing commitment. POP-UP Choir is “one and done” musical ministry – Show up at 9:15 AM, learn the songs, sing in service – then you’re done and happy!  More info available from Susan Keiter.
