A Special Invitation For Our Sister Congregation

Greetings Fellow UU

Several months ago, Jennifer Slade, minister at our sister congregation in Norfolk, died.  She had just begun the ground work on a crusade to help the Norfolk UU’s on the road to relocation.  A project necessitated by sea level rise.  

Your congregational president, me, thought it would be meaningful to lend a hand in this time of grief and need.  So I brought the idea to Andrew, our policy board, and the other churches in our UU “cluster”.  All agreed.  The vehicle best suited for this, we determined, was faithify.org, a newly created UU crowd funding site.  With the help of Chris and Andrew this came to pass.  

Several weeks back I mentioned all of this at a Sunday service, and asked you to please consider lending a helping hand.  That time of helping is at hand.  At this Sunday’s service we will be sharing the basket with our neighbors, Unitarian Church of Norfolk.  This will be a special one-time request, and the contribution will be added to Faithify in the name of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of the Peninsula.    

The fund currently has pledges of $2,400 toward a goal of $10,000.  Some of our members have already contributed by going to the website and making a pledge.  If you won’t be with us on Sunday, I ask that you consider doing that too.

Please consider a generous gift this Sunday.  Let’s make it known that we are truly good neighbors.  Maybe it will become contagious.

Best Regards

Alan Sheeler
