As our summer moves toward its end, I want to highlight a couple things coming up in September. The theme for September is “Expectation,” and I’m brimming with anticipation already.
On September 8th we will celebrate our annual Water Service. If you have water to share from summer adventures, great! If you have water from your own backyard or tap, great! If you forget to bring any, we’ll have pitchers of water for you to pour from to add to our common bowl.
September 15th we will kick off our annual Stewardship Drive, though we’ll not be doing a big luncheon that day. Instead, the Stewardship Committee has planned a series of cottage meetings. At these informal meetings there will be food, fellowship, and conversation on our hopes and dreams for UUFB. Watch for the schedule soon!
Also on September 15, I’ll host the first “Minister & Membership Coffee” during Fellowship Hour. This is intended to be a monthly informal gathering geared primarily toward newcomers who may have questions, or be interested in joining, but unable to make it to a Connections Class.
Finally, on September 29th, there will be another Congregational Meeting to update everyone on how we’re doing – especially with regard to our mini capital campaign for roof and A/C expenditures.
There’s a lot happening! Hope to see you soon!
