Holy moly! It’s almost Ordination Day! I cannot tell you how truly honored I am that you have chosen to support me in this important step of my ministry. It is a humbling, overwhelming feeling to be celebrated in this way. I hope that you can join us in person at 2:00 tomorrow. We will also be live streaming on our YouTube channel – same place we stream Sunday services. Tomorrow, you will get to meet my family and some of amazing people who have mentored and supported me throughout this journey. I’m so excited for you to get to hear from them!
I have a few reminders that I’d like to also pass your way:
1. Don’t forget to save the date for our First UU Fall Festival on October 22nd. We will have a live auction, games, food, and of course, lots of fun. If you would like to make a donation to the auction, please see the announcement below for more information.
2. I have heard from several of you who would like a booth at our first annual Fall Engagement Fair on Sunday, September 18th. If your group/class would like to set up a booth, please let me know by Sunday, September 11th. I need time to get the set up for Beach Hall planned and make sure we have enough tables. This will be an opportunity to provide information and give our community a chance to sign up for you group, class, or volunteer opportunity. You can have your booth set up for both Community Hour at 10:00 as well as after the service.
3. Are you interested in helping us provide a welcoming environment on Sunday mornings? Being a part of the Welcome Team is an easy and fun way to meet our community and welcome visitors. If you are interested, please let me know! We will have a training starting at 10am on Sunday September 11th.
I think that’s all the items I wanted to highlight. If you have any questions about anything listed, or anything else, please let me know!
