Weekly Message–excerpt–3/30/12

 

Stewardship Pledge  Campaign Update—many more folks have mailed in their 2012-13 pledge forms or brought them to Sunday service.  As of today UUSS has received 240 pledges totaling $394,400.  Thank you so much!

Our Bookkeeper says we still have about 120 outstanding. And the red “thermometer” shows we have over $100,000 to go to fully fund all the goals and commitments we’d like to.  Every pledge makes a difference!

You may pick up a yellow form this Sunday to make a pledge, contact Michele Ebler to ask her to fill out a form for you or mail one, or you may download one at this link.

Every pledge received in the next few days will enable our Treasurer to present a more accurate and optimistic budget to the Executive Committee of the Board.  Every pledge is valued and appreciated, and we thank you.  Thank you for your support.

Easter! Easter!  What’s all this I hear about Easter?

On April 8, Religious Education takes place during the 9:30 AM service.  Doug will be preaching, the Starr Singers singing, and both Youth Groups hiding Easter eggs (for Room 11 kids) and canned goods (for Spirit Play kids) to find and turn in for treats.

To prepare for the annual canned food Easter hunt, Religious Education Committee and Senior High Youth Group are now accepting canned food donations. Your canned food donations can be dropped off at the Religious Education table on your way into this Sunday’s service. Thank you!

 

Games Night—Friday, April 20Folks of all ages gather again for a potluck supper and board games.  Families, singles, couples, from toddlers to elders.  Show up at 5:30, we eat at 6 PM.  Play till 8 PM.

 

Summer Camp for UUs in Grade School– Children headed into first through fifth grades are invited to spend the week of August 6 – 10 at UUSS’s summer day camp with camp director Mary Howard and camp counselors from our senior high youth group.  A child’s week at Chalice Camp will include art, drama, water play, games, and more fun.  It will deepen each child’s understanding and expression of Unitarian Universalism.  To learn more or sign your child up, visit the Religious Education page on the UUSS website or contact camp director Mary Howard or camp registrar Carrie Cornwell .
