For many of us, summer is a time to break from the routine. The same is true here at the UU Church, with more lay-led services, RE Camp, and UU Flames Softball to name but a few. In particular, the annual All- Church Retreat will take place on the weekend of August 9-11 at Ross Camp. This intergenerational event is a wonderful opportunity for enrichment, fun, and friendship. Additional details about the retreat can be found within this issue of the Lighted Chalice.
At the July meeting of the Board of Trustees, a proposal to generate revenue by adding a link to Amazon.com from our church website was approved. The UU Church will receive an advertising fee from Amazon for any purchases made through this link. Further details will be forthcoming once this new feature becomes available.
The Board also heard a report from the Stewardship Committee regarding updated procedures for gift acceptance. With these procedures in place, we can provide a more consistent and thoughtful process for handling non-pledge gifts to the UUC. If you are considering such a gift, please speak to the Stewardship Chair, Rev. Charlie, or the Endowment Chair. Contact information is available on the UUC website, or you can call the Office Administrator at 765-743-8812.
Thank you for the gifts that each of you brings to our congregation.
Mark VanMeeter President Board of Trustees
