As the Holiday Season approaches, we are mindful that we have a history of offering a variety of ways to give and to gift here at UUCW. In an effort to invite participation in these efforts, without overwhelming each other, we are offering this list to you in hopes that you will participate in any of the ways that feel best to you and assist you in celebrating the holidays in ways that are most meaningful.  This list will grow over the next few weeks so watch for your favorite ways to give and gift!

Special Collection at Holiday Services
During the special holiday services December 23 through December 30, members and friends of the congregation are invited to participate in our special offering project in support of the UUCW Emergency Fund.  This fund serves families both within our congregation and the community at large by providing needed resources such as heating oil, gas, clothing, medicine, partial rent, school supplies, etc. for those in need.  During 2018 over $1700.00 was distributed from this fund. Please consider your contribution to this important ministry.  Envelopes will be handed out with Orders of Service and extras will be available in the foyer.  Thank you in advance for your generosity and compassion. If you prefer to donate to this cause digitally online, please visit HERE.

Holiday Family Needs
If you know of a family in our midst, including your own, who may need assistance this holiday season with necessities or gifts for children, please let Aaron know ASAP ().  Any needs expressed will remain confidential and distributions of resources will be done privately.

Rev. Aaron Payson
