Loved into Being

 

“Loved into Being”
Optional “CHECK-IN” 10:45 am 
Sunday Service 11am EST by Zoom
March 7, 2021

Faith in Unitarian Universalism isn’t just an intellectual exercise: it’s “heart” work. This full-length worship experience features a new sermon by UUA President Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray, as well as vibrant music, storytelling, and other worship elements that will help us to grow in spirit, in courage, and in generosity.

You’re welcome to log in a bit early, at 10:45am, for some informal “check-in” time among Athens friends before we start with parts or the whole of the UUA service.

See far below for a PDF of the UUA’s entire Order of Service.  (And, as always, if you want to see this entire Greensheet newsletter in its full glory, including attachments without downloading or opening any files, you can visit our website http://uuathensoh.org/  and scroll down until you see all our Greensheet newsletters in the right hand column, and click on the issue you want to see.)

NEWS FROM (UUFA PRESIDENT) SUUSAN

Hi Everyone!

The UU Fellowship of Athens (that’s us!) is once again an Honor Congregation of the UUA (Unitarian Universalist Association, of which we are a member.)

What is an “Honor Congregation,” I hear you ask? This recognition means that we have paid our full Annual Program Fund amount for the 2020-2021 church year. This contribution gives us voting rights at the Annual General Assembly, allows us to tap into support services from UUA consultants, and a full suite of online resources. So when you make a pledge to the UUFA, this is part of what your pledge supports.

Thank you to all who have returned their pledge offerings for the current stewardship campaign. If you are considering a pledge or donation to the UUFA, feel free to contact me with questions or concerns. 

Peace, Suusan suusanw.uu@gmail.com ; 240-305-0860
