Rev. Jeremy D. Nickel
 
Brrrr!  While I appreciate all of this life-giving and green-making rain that has been falling, I could do without the accompanying colder temps.  But luckily there is a lot going on in our community to warm you up.

Besides our Sunday service, many members will be gathering to attend one of the several Women's Marches that are occurring over the weekend in San Francisco, Oakland, Walnut Creek and San Jose.  And if you would like to join one of our groups, all the information to connect can be found in a separate article below.  

Another event to consider putting on your calendar is in two weeks, as Mission Peak UU will be participating in the Tri-City Interfaith Council's annual Interfaith Harmony Day.  It is Saturday, February 4, from 1-3 PM at Niles Discovery Church. Opportunities to learn about other faith traditions and to talk to people with different beliefs will be provided and I hope to see you there.

Yours in the unfolding,

Rev. Jeremy D. Nickel
Minister of Mission Peak UU Congregation
Fremont, CA.
Cell: 510.936.1632

Preferred appointment times: Tue-Thur  11am-6pm

Boys Dont Cry: How Feminism Saved My Life
 
 

I was born with the biological parts that assigned me to the male gender, but I was taught from birth (at times brutually) what it means to be a man. It has taken me years to unlearn much of what culture and society wanted me to believe being a man meant, so I could live as the human being I felt called to be, and this morning I hope to share some of those lessons with you. 
 


Leading the service will be Rev. Jeremy D. Nickel and Worship Associate Ilze Duarte.  Music will be provided by Eric Niessner.  

As a courtesy to fellow attendees, if you have an active cold, please consider wearing a protective mask.  Thank you!

Women's March January 21, 2017

The Women's March is a non-partisan nationwide movement to unify and empower everyone who stands for human rights, civil liberties, and social justice for all. The website says "we join in diversity to show our presence in numbers too great to ignore. We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us." They call on all defenders of human rights to join them. They say "We work peacefully while recognizing there is no true peace without justice and equity for all." 
 
The values being articulated seem to be a good fit with our own Unitarian Universalist principles.  Folks from the Mission Peak congregation will attend various local marches  on January 21 in San Jose, Oakland, Walnut Creek, and San Francisco. The ones in San Jose and Oakland convene at 10:00 am, the one in Walnut Creek at 10:30am, and the one in San Francisco at 4pm. For more information about the Women's March, about the respective Bay Area marches, and to RSVP please go to the website.   https://womensmarchbayarea.org/#join-a-march

Social Action Project-Homelessness

You are invited! On January 29th   after the service, we will have an all-congregation party to assemble snack packs   and hygiene kits for homeless people. We will also include encouraging words written on a Mission Peak card so people know we care about them. On each Sunday prior to the 29th, we will have a box for people to drop off donations.    Some of the items include: thick socks, sanitary pads, lip balm, tissues, gloves, granola bars, breakfast bars, fruit or pudding cups. Click on http://mpuuc.org/s/DonationList.pdf  to get the complete list. Monetary donations are also accepted.

Mission Peak Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Fremont was founded in 1993. We are a member congregation of the  Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts.

Mission Peak members determine its policies, choose its minister, and support it financially.

We affirm and promote these UUA Principles and Purposes:
  • The inherent worth and dignity of every person
  • Justice, equity and compassion in human relations
  • Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations
  • A free and responsible search for truth and meaning
  • The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in our society at large
  • The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all
  • Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part
We invite you to join us and add your commitment to ours. Mission Peak is a living and changing congregation, responsive to the spiritual needs of its members. With the leadership of our  minister, we search for ways to fulfill ourselves as individuals and as a community. Joining us is a commitment to this process.
