As I prepare for a week away next week, a few housekeeping notes.
First, if youâ€™re interested in learning more (or receiving a refresher) on the foundations of Christianity and church life via a 5-week series in August and September, please let me know this week! This is for people interested in church membership, or long-time members and friends who want to brush up on a few things and get to know others within the community. Thereâ€™s more information on our website, including a survey about class format. If thereâ€™s not much interest this time around, we will postpone.
Secondly, the Clutter Barn needs your stuff! After a most successful sale last Saturday, the shelves are bare! There are two donation days in August: Saturdays the 6th and 13th. Please sort your items and bring them by, and/or volunteer to help fill the shelves again. Many thanks to the CB crew for an excellent showing (and earnings!) last weekend.
Finally, Iâ€™m beginning to think about 2023, which will be the 50th anniversary of the United Church of Underhill. Itâ€™s about time we put together a planning team, but before we get there, Iâ€™d love to hear your ideas. Is there a part of the history youâ€™d like to know more about? Guests we should invite? Special events to hold? Letâ€™s let those creative juices flow so that our commemoration can reflect a full range of UCU experiences.
I look forward to your ideas and to breaking bread with you at the communion table this Sunday. (Reminder: weâ€™re back in the sanctuary and online via YouTube Live at 10:00 am this week!)
