There are many ways to find the News at UUFG. This section is devoted to keeping the news available in an easy manner.

The Current News page has a blog format for showing news as it happens in chronological order. The President's Message is the same - the monthly articles found in the Sunday Gazette. The Music and RE menus will provide their monthly articles and any other updates that you should be aware of.

If you have news that you wish to have published for the UUFG community, please send it to news(at)uufg.org. This is the main portal for publishing news. The UUFG website, eNews, Sunday Gazette, and some News and Needs messages will be picked up and published from this address.

Social Justice Programming -- March 2019

Social Justice Programming -- March 2019

March 5 (Tuesday)
Nominations are due for Share The Plate 2019-20. Each year UUFG members choose 10 organizations to which to donate all undesignated offerings one Sunday each month except the month of the Pledge Drive, and December. We began taking nominations of organizations at the January congregational meeting, and congregation members will vote for their choices at the spring Annual Meeting. Donations will begin with the new fiscal year in July. Each organization must be a local 501C3 organization, and those previously funded are not automatically included again. To complete your nomination we will need, by March 5, name of organization, brief description, website, and note of how you believe it fits with UUFG principles. Please send these to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

March 10 (Sunday PM) through March 16 (Sunday AM)
Hosting Family Promise guests at UUFG. We will host families for evening dinners, overnight, and breakfasts. Please look for the table today to sign up to help by cooking, hosting dinner, or any of a myriad of other tasks!

March 11-12 (Monday-Tuesday)
UU Justice Florida 2019 Legislative Days. UUs from all over Florida will gather in Tallahassee. On March 11 the UU church in Tallahassee offers supper and programs to prepare us, and on Tuesday we will visit our State Legislators to press causes which fit our UU principles. For Program information and to Register by March 1 go to the web page UUJusticefl.org. While on that web page, consider signing up to receive Action Alerts through the UUJF Action Network.

If you are ready to get involved in one of our Social Justice Action Teams, pick up a yellow Social Justice brochure in Phillips Social Hall. to see the possibilities. We especially need volunteers right now in Pineridge neighborhood, working with children or with adults. And looking ahead in case you want to get started reading: we will be doing a Common Read of the book Justice on Earth: People of Faith Working at the Intersections of Race, Class, and the Environment.

 
The President's Perspective -- November, 2016

alt Dear Members,

As you know, each year the Fellowship conducts a Stewardship Drive (aka “the Pledge Drive”, or “the Annual Canvass” among others). Last year, the Stewardship Drive was a resounding success, and we received almost $20,000 more in member pledges for this fiscal year than we did for the previous fiscal year.

The President's Perspective -- June 2016

Dear Members,

It is with mixed emotions that I write my last column as president. I have so enjoyed this year working with the other Board members and I am sorry to leave the Board. However, I leave knowing that the new Board is in good hands with Pete Runyan at the helm. [Click "Read more..." to continue.]
