The lazy days of summer are upon us. It’s the time of the year that Mother Nature reminds us to slow down and relax with a cool drink. Many of us are taking long awaited vacations and others are just enjoying the joys of summer at home. It is also that time of year when things slow down just a bit at UUFP. There is no board meeting this month, so there is not much to report. But I will update you on a few things:
• The Membership Committee did hold a UU 101 course. Thanks go out to Miranda Van Horn for developing and facilitating this event.
• We are singing again at the fellowship! It is so good to hear the choir again. They did an amazing job singing at the Minister’s going away party. Again, thanks to Miranda Van Horn for picking the music and leading the choir for this special occasion. We are looking for someone to act as a choir director. If anyone knows of someone who might want to lead a small, but mighty choir, please let a board member know.
• We are continuing to pursue leads for a part-time contract minister. In the meantime, the Worship Committee continues to do a great job in ensuring that our Sunday Services are thought-provoking and spiritually grounded. Many thanks to Mary Ryan, Emily Quarles-Mowrer, Lisa Jokiel and Allan Pallay for all their hard work and focus on this.
• We are looking to hire someone to provide coverage for the nursery. In addition to the work in the nursery, this individual will at times be asked to help with R.E. classes. Background checks will be required as well as proof of full immunization for COVID-19. If you know of anyone that might be interested, please let a board member know.
Enjoy the dog days of summer!
With Gratitude, Linda K.
