Congregation News

Dear Members and Friends,

The good news this month is that we are adding two new members to our congregation. Please join me in welcoming Jaye Moyer and Markley Wilson.  As we do so, think about inviting friends to attend our Sunday service with you.  Many people are looking for a spiritual home in a liberal setting that offers acceptance and a social justice commitment.

Our message is timely. The books for the Common Read have started to arrive. ‘An Indigenous People’s History of the United States” by Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz is in house and we are awaiting the adaptation for young people. This history chronicles “the trauma and resilience that is the Indigenous People’s History of the United States.” (UUA website) Reverend Chris will lead a discussion of this book on the third Sunday of each month at 9 a.m.

Many thanks go out to Jay Beaumont and Mike Landrum for the beautiful job they did in painting the walls of the Fellowship Hall, the hallways and the nursery. Perhaps you’ve noticed the very clean floors in the Fellowship Hall, we owe thanks to the Birch School for this undertaking.

Thank you for all you do.  As always, please feel free to approach any member of the Board with any issues or concerns you may have.  Board members are: Nan Dempster, secretary, Alan Horne, treasurer, and Bill Domanico, Hollis Kellogg, Michael Nichols, and Bernadette McGinn, all members at-large.

In Service,

Laura Giner Bair                                                                                                                                                Acting President
