EUMC SMALL LIBRARIES
EUMC now has a small library. Drop off books to share, pick up one to read and keep the rotation going. Located on the west end of the sanctuary. Fiction, non-fiction, mysteries, and more.
We also have a Christian Library located on the west end of the sanctuary. Many great books by local and national authors. Come check it out!
Ukulele, Community and Connection
Jeelee Unsoy came up with a great idea this past May to start a Ukulele group. She has followed through and we had a Meet & Greet session with our instructor Stan Plant. Stan lives in Franktown and has been teaching lessons on just about any stringed instrument for many years. His “office” is The Owl’s Nest coffee shop in Franktown. He also has a band that plays locally. Stan is a fun loving, patient guy that you will all enjoy. He has agreed to conduct an hour long ukulele group lesson for our group once a month for $50 a session. This would mean $5 for each participant. We meet every Thursday at 11:00 am at Elizabeth United Methodist Church. Stan will join us once a month for new 'techniques'. We are all looking forward to making community connections and music (or just noise initially) together!!! Anyone is welcome! NO previous experience is needed. Join any time!! If you have a friend that is interested bring them along. See you there! For more information email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
