On March 26 the Board of Trustees sent a letter to church members requesting nominations for the Ministerial Search Committee, and detailing how to make a nomination. If you are a member of First Unitarian Church and haven't received this letter (sent by email or by U.S. mail to those who don't have email addresses), please contact Claus Makowka, email@example.com.
Let me begin by saying that Rev. Connie, the Board, and I recognize that some members of our congregation are dealing with reduced pay, no pay, or layoffs in addition to all of the social stresses of this pandemic. If that applies to you, please don't worry about pledge payments until your finances recover. Nor need you take precious time to email me about suspending your donation, unless you need my help to stop or reduce an automatic payment. If so, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
For those of us with the good fortune of a continuing income, if your practice has been to put your donation or pledge payment in the Sunday collection plate, welcome to the virtual collection plate! You can still donate in one of the following ways:
Please also consider making an extra contribution to Marion's Purse / Minister's Benevolence Fund so Rev. Connie is able provide some support for congregants with financial emergencies.
Thank you for your continued generosity in these challenging times.
Claus D. Makowka
