Plan Your Guest at Your Table Program
Guest at Your Table 2012-2013
By coordinating a Guest at Your Table celebration for your congregation, you help participants of all ages nurture lasting connections to UU principles, build awareness about social justice and human rights, and strengthen UUSC's work. Thank you for joining us in the special UU tradition. This year we are celebrating innovative partnerships.
Set your dates
The suggested date for opening Guest at Your Table is always the Sunday before Thanksgiving. This year, that date is November 18, 2012, but please schedule Guest at Your Table worship activities for the time that best suits your congregation.
Most congregations celebrate Guest at Your Table for four to six weeks, ending with a special worship service or other activity to gather boxes and envelopes.
Get your creative juices flowing by reading about great ideas for Guest at Your Table activities and events that have been used in other congregations.
Acquire planning materials
All planning materials will be available electronically. We have planning guidance for organizers, worship resources, and religious education materials. View and download materials. You can save the files, then print only the pages you need.
Printed planning materials are available by request. Contact us at email@example.com to place an order. We will be happy to send you printed copies of any materials as needed!
Order participation materials
We send a postcard reminder with key information to every UUSC Local Representative, Guest at Your Table coordinator, and congregation. If you did not receive a postcard reminder, please notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can add you to our contact list.
Place your order now for participation materials, including gift boxes, gift envelopes, Stories of Hope booklets, membership stickers, and UUSC program fact sheets; you should plan one shipment in quantities sufficient to serve your congregation.
Reminder: Please order your essential Guest at Your Table supplies well in advance of your opening date. We will ship in a timely manner prior to the date of your service. If you need your order within 7 days, rush shipping can be accommodated for an additional fee.
