From Your President – January 2021January 1, 2021
Good Bye 2020, Hello 2021. It’s been a hell of a year. Our Church has gotten an amazing amount of work done this year even though we haven’t been able to meet in person. We have a wonderful mural on our wall and a beautiful place to sit and enjoy it. The amazing people making masks to help keep us safe have passed the 5500 piece mark. The UUCS community donated over $20,000 to help undocumented immigrants. We worked on voting rights and helped out at the polls in November. We collected so much food for Total Ministries over the months. We are in our second month of first Friday’s and we have reached 25% of our goal. A big shout out to Stewardship Chair Brannon Carter for all his work. We had an in person Solstice celebration and a wonderful Christmas Eve service. We held a few in person services when we could and the Goddesses willing, the kitchen will be finished soon and the new siding for the building will be started in January.
As we move into the New Year the light at the end of the tunnel is a lot brighter with the vaccines coming. When it’s your turn, get out, roll up your sleeve and get the shot. The sooner we all get vaccinated the faster we can get back together. Our Annual Fund Drive/Unsung Hero’s event will kick off at the end of January. Since we can’t get together for a meal with each other, we will have a Zoom event for all to enjoy. You will be receiving information about this soon.
As always, wear your masks everywhere, keep your family and friends safe and practice social distancing. Don’t hesitate to call on any board member if you need something. Soon, we will be able to come back together. I want to see every one of you there.

Coming up this week in December is our 2nd, 1st Friday. We have raised over 1,200.00 in November. Brannon Carter from Stewardship has been working long and hard to bring this first piece of the Annual Auction to us. When you see him let him know how much he is appreciated.
The Wilde Hall elevator campaign is underway. If you have any questions please read Alan Jenkins’ article in the unison.
Teddy Bear Sunday is coming this week. If you would like, please drop off a new bear or stuffed animal sometime this week to the front porch of Hatcher House or bring it by on Sunday the 6th at the SJ drive-by.
Worship is gearing up for two in person services this month. First is the Solstice on the 21st, and then Christmas Eve on the 24th. Hope many of you can join in the celebrations. Looking forward to continuing some of our services in January with many attending as the weather permits.
Some good news on the horizon for January. Looks like some folks can start getting ready for Vaccines against Covid-19. When my turn comes, I will be in line with my sleeve rolled up and ready. Hope by next fall we can be back to something that looks normal again!!!
As we get ready for the holiday season, stay safe and keep wearing those masks.
See you all soon
