Summer Read!

The UUFB Worship Team invites you to read a book this summer!  Sharing Common Ground, by former mayor of Beaufort Billy Keyserling, is a well written guide to understanding our newly designated Beaufort Historical Reconstruction National Park.  The information begins with ‘The Big Gunshoot” in Port Royal Sound in 1861 and traces Beaufort history through […]

May 5th Sunday Donations – THANK YOU!

All during the COVID pandemic, Marshview Farm has been preparing free hot meals to those needy members within our community who have lost their jobs.   Students from the Marshview cooking classes participated in this project by picking vegetables at Marshview Farm, helping with the preparation of food, packing it into carry-out boxes, and helping […]

Everything’s Coming Up Rainbows!

For our worship service on June 20, 2021, please come ready to celebrate Pride! Many communities around the world celebrate LGBTQ+ Pride during the month of June, to coincide with the anniversary of the Stonewall riots in June, 1969. Bring your rainbow hats, or other clothing that incorporates rainbow designs. Rainbow flags! Rainbow scarves! Rainbow […]

To Be Continued: Being Welcoming

Dear Ones, Thirty of us gathered in our Sanctuary last Sunday, and it was good. We had windows open and fans going for ventilation. We had Chris playing at the grand piano! We had a good service – and we had a newcomer with us, too.  I think we sometimes forget that we almost always […]

Stewardship Chair Needed!

The fabulous Grace Drake has chosen to take a bow and leave the chairing of the Stewardship Committee to someone else for now. As Grace has ably chaired this committee, we hate to see her go! At the same time, we understand her efforts need to be put to other things at this point in […]

To Be Continued: Guidelines As We Return

Dear Ones, Yes, we will begin to hold in person worship services again this coming Sunday, June 6th. As I write this, the Covid Act Now website still lists people in our county as at medium risk for contracting COVID, with an average of just over 5 new cases per day, per 100,000 people. Just […]

To Be Continued: Return and Play!

Dear Ones, “Summertime… and the livin’ is …” The lyric tells us that the livin’ is easy in summertime. This was certainly not the case last summer, as the pandemic raged across the world. With roughly half the adult population in the U.S. now vaccinated, more and more of us are looking forward to hosting guests […]

To Be Continued: Habit & Return

Dear Ones, Habits are funny things. Before last March, most of us were in the habit of worship at the Fellowship on Sunday mornings. Many of us also had regular tasks for Sunday morning – greeting, speaking, counting the offering, preparing refreshments for fellowship hour after service, etc. Last March everything changed from one Sunday […]

To Be Continued: Flowers!

Dear Ones, If you attended last Sunday’s online worship service, you know that we celebrated the Flower Festival again! You may also know that there is an opportunity to pick up some gladiolus bulbs from the Fellowship Hall porch. I just checked, and there are still some bulbs available. I know it’s not the same as […]
