On the third Sunday of every month, we take a special plate collection to support local charitable agencies, as well as the Michigan Unitarian Universalist Social Justice Network (MUUSJN) and the UU Service Committee (UUSC). Last year (2018-2019) as a congregation we donated $3431.00 in total to these various agencies. We certainly are not a people of scarcity, but rather a people of generosity. Many thanks.
On Friday, July 19, Carol Rard, UUFCM president, and Drew Frantz, signed a ministerial contract for the 2019-2020 year, starting September 1 and ending June 30, 2020. Drew is sending an introduction letter and short video which will be mailed directly to your e-mail address, hopefully within the next week. As plans get firmed up, we will let you know about a welcoming event on September 1 and an opportunity for small-group gatherings to get to know Drew better.
Even though our summer services will provide a different format, some things won’t change. Coffee hour with munchies is written in stone. Please consider bringing something (cookies, crackers, fruit, cheese, gluten free treat, etc. No nuts please) for one of the upcoming Sundays in July and August. There is a sign-up sheet in the fellowship hall if you want to let us know in advance, but it is not necessary - if you want to share your delicious goodies, don't hesitate to bring them!
