Fall Festival 2017

This Land is Your Land ...

pix - purplemountain 60Our October 7th Autumn Festival is done, and since you asked, the total net income for this event alone is $15,257. That heroic total happened because of the heroic efforts of (especially) Nancy Cole and Brian Levy and the prodigious efforts of scores of others ... more than can be named here. Pretty much, read your church directory to see who helped in preparation, staging, serving, clean-up, and, of course, donating events and items and agreeing to purchase same.

Invoices and guest lists have been prepared and will be emailed this week. I'm writing this on Sunday afternoon, 22nd of October.

Start Up Workshop

Soaring into Our Future

UUCVEagleFlightSunOn Saturday, November 4, from 9:00 to noon, all Members and Friends are encouraged to join with our new minister, Rev. Kathryn Bert, in a congregational workshop called Start Up by the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA).

The UUA and the Pacific Western Region (PWR) of the UUA ask that all UU congregations starting out with a new settled minister participate in this exploratory program. Designed to help us develop an enhanced and fulfilling future together, the workshop will provide a chance for us to consider topics that are relevant to our success as a 'new' congregation. Rev. Duane Fickeisen from the PWR will be our facilitator.

These topics include:

  • Patterns we have established around expectations for our minister
  • Dimensions and challenges of shared ministry
  • Structures and boundaries necessary for effective ministry
  • Ways to help highlight our new minister's strengths
  • Priorities for our first year together at UUCV

As you can probably see, this is going to be an important launching experience for the church.
Don't miss it!
