Sunday Service – November 19, 2023
Guest at Your Table and Kick Off to Giving Season – Please join us this Sunday for our weekly service. We are preparing to engage in a season of giving and we have some unique ways for individuals and families of our community to get involved.
We will explore the good works our the UU Service Committee which is the arm of the UUA that addresses social justice issues around the world. This year the theme is “Liberation”. We will meet 4 different partners (via video) that the UUSC is dedicating to assisting. Our contributions this year will go directly to those on the front lines. We will also discuss 2 ways to give locally- our building partner, SEORA , is hosting a toy drive and we will also have a canned food donation collection for UCM Center weekly meals. The box will be throughout the holiday season and will end on January 7th.
We hope to see you Sunday. Barb Harrison is our service leader.
