Building Together

Annual Fund Campaign

for Fiscal Year 2018 – 2019

 

We are on the move:

– children’s RE attendance averages upwards of twenty-five children every Sunday, expanding to fill new rooms in the education wing;
– our music program is overflowing with musicians pouring out their gifts in worship, including a choir that now numbers nineteen members, the most recent joining since the New Year;
– and our social justice projects have been reorganized to immediate effect: volunteers of all ages filled the Fellowship Hall for our MLK Day of Service, and our gifts to agencies in the community through Share the Plate have increased markedly month after month.

Our congregation is doing extraordinary work—all of us, together.

This year we have set our most challenging Annual Fund goal to date: $215,000. Our ambition is in service to what we know we offer, the freedom to be ourselves in witness to a world that longs to be free—the freedom to love beyond belief.

Please fuel our work by pledging your financial support for the coming fiscal year by February 28th. You may pledge online by clicking here. Pledge cards will also be available before or after Sunday service in the front lobby at the Information Center.

Thank you for your generosity. Thank you for your energy. Thank you for building this community, so vital to building a more just and livable world. Thank you for building our future–together.

Enter your pledge for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2018, and ending June 30, 2019:

 


Thank you,

UUCS Annual Fund Team
