Connection

Humans are social animals: We crave feeling supported, valued and connected. Sometimes connection is a heart-to-heart, spill-it-all-out talk. But sometimes it’s just a laugh-out-loud e-mail. Connection is universal human need – let’s do it! Childcare and youth programming are available during the service, and refreshments and conversation follow. Everyone is welcome!

Celebrating the Legacy of James Reeb

Come hear the story of Reverend James Reeb, memorialized though the recently completed James Reeb Mural in downtown Casper. Reverend Reeb was murdered in 1965 in Selma, Alabama, after answering Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s nationwide call for religious leaders to come south to march in support of voting rights. The story of his murder and its aftermath of failed justice can be heard on the new NPR podcast “White Lies.” What is not so widely known is that James Reeb grew up in Casper and served as a Presbyterian minister here before his faith journey led him to Unitarian Universalism.
