Prison Ministry Cards -- Sunday, December 15, 12:15 pm

As an outgrowth of last month’s prison ministry workshop at UUFG, you’re invited to participate next Sunday in preparing cards for Florida prisoners.

Currently, 300 members of the UU Church of the Larger Fellowship are incarcerated in Florida prisons. UUFG's Social Justice Council is interested in supporting these incarcerated UUs through a program sponsored by CLF’s Worthy Now prison ministry (clfuu.org; worthynow.org).

To jumpstart our participation, we have 300 cards that need to be signed, addressed, and mailed before the holiday rush. Please join Jeff Stevens next Sunday, December 15, during after-service coffee hour in the Social Hall to send well wishes for the holiday season to these UUs, many of whom may receive no cards of seasonal greetings at all this December.

 
Cookie Caper -- Sunday, December 15

UUFG’s annual Cookie Caper is coming Sunday, December 15 after service!

You may bring one dozen of your favorite cookies and take home an assortment of cookies for the Holidays. One plate of a dozen cookies is $5 or two cookies for $1.

All proceeds go to our Fellowship’s Social Justice programs.

 
For Newcomers: an Introduction to Unitarian Universalism

First Sunday Town Halls

Starting on Sunday, December 1, the Fellowship's Governing Board will host monthly Town Hall Meetings."

Immediately following services every first Sunday of the month, we will have a Soup and Bread lunch ($5 donation welcomed) and a congregation-wide discussion of the Board’s three goals and what they mean to each of us.

This is an opportunity for members, friends, and guests to share with each other and the Board how this Fellowship can live its values in the world. The work of the Fellowship is ours together, and the Board wants to hear your perspectives and inputs on how we achieve these goals.

Every month, we have a different Touchstones theme. Each Town Hall will keep that perspective in mind as we engage with each other around the
following three goals in a series of 20-minute discussions:

1. Focus on spiritual deepening within the congregation, including the creating of a pastoral care program;

2. Modernize Sunday services; and

3. Renewal of our Welcoming Congregation designation, including inclusive bathrooms.

These First Sunday Town Halls will be an opportunity to have more member-to-member conversations, as well as an avenue for the Board to hear directly from you on a variety of topics. Please plan to attend as many of these as possible – the topic for each Town Hall will be different, and the Board wants to hear from you all!

Respectfully,

Kristin Stevens, Board President
