Saturday, September 24
10-12pm - training for anyone interested in improving their worship skills
Rev. Drew will lead exercises to make you feel more comfortable reading from the pulpit, handling the technology in our sanctuary, and understanding the various elements that makeup Unitarian Universalist worship services. This is intended for anyone who has been part of leading worship or would like to be involved. No experience necessary!
12-1pm - lunch provided by UUFCM Worship Team
All are welcome.
1-2pm - long-term planning for the coming year of worship
We will brainstorm about the themes and topics that we would like to see in the 2022-23 year of Sunday worship, planning for services that are minister-led, lay-led, collaborative, and/or multigenerational. Bring your ideas and your calendar. This is intended for those who may lead a worship service and for anyone who has new ideas for the worship team in their planning.
Rev. Drew will lead worship twice in July and three times in August. Other Sundays this summer will feature lay leaders; a virtual visit to UU Fellowship of Midland; a nation-wide General Assembly worship; TED talks; and more.
Rev. Drew is on study leave for the rest of June – except for a week at General Assembly and Ministry Days. Drew will be available for urgent pastoral care needs and Fellowship business, but taking a break from most regular duties.
