Kick-off Luncheon Celebrating our Annual Generosity of Giving Pledge Drive Campaign

Each week you join together with others to covenant in “honoring the generous heart”. Stewardship is the process of empowering your own internal passion to be generous with how you invest your time, your money, and your giftedness and talents.

You’re invited to a Kick-off Luncheon announcing the start of our annual Generosity of Giving Pledge Drive Campaign. This is an opportunity to learn more about investing in the growth of our programs, events, and services both in our congregation & in our community. We’re taking this time to look for opportunities to grow and expand our reach into our community and city. This period of reflection can help us each consider ways we can invest in the energy that drives the vision and mission we all strive towards here at UUCS.

Date: Sunday, January 26th
Place/Time: following the service at 12:15pm down in Wilde Hall
Sign-up Required: visit OR see the sign-up sheet above the coffee in the fellowship hall
Meal options available: Meat, vegetarian, and vegan options will be available

(Don’t Fear) The Reaper: An Exploration of Modern Death

9:30-10:30 am, In the Sanctuary on the 4th Sunday of January, & February

Death is a difficult topic to think or talk about, but a necessary one if we or our loved ones are to have the best possible end of life experience. This series will look at death and dying from a global perspective, and then we will talk about what you can do to make things the best they can possibly be in this phase of life that we will all face at some point. Presenters will be UUCS members Garrett Snipes, MD, Medical Director, Spartanburg Regional Hospice, and Lisa Mowery, BCST, SEP, LMBT, who offer specialized support for all stages of the dying process.

The first two sessions were in October and November and the last two sessions will on the 4th Sunday of January and February from 9:30-10:30 am in the Sanctuary. Topics in the series will be as follows:

I. Introduction: Modern Death in 5 Easy Questions – October 27

II. Exploring the Process of Dying – November 24

III. Dying Well: An Oxymoron? – January 26

IV. Conclusion: Layers of Support at End of Life – February 23

Please join us for what we hope will be a frank and honest, but not dour, look at death and dying. We also hope to give you some ideas about the things you can do to plan and prepare yourselves and the people you care about. This series is relevant for adults of all ages.
These sessions will be followed by a Saturday workshop which will provide opportunities to complete end of life forms and define individual intentions. Childcare can be arranged for this workshop with prior notice. Date to be announced later.
