First Unitarian Church began using Breeze for its church management software in January. Breeze includes the capability to provide an online directory of church members and friends. After initial testing with a limited number of users, the church is ready to roll out the online directory to the church community.
Want to help us be a more welcoming congregation? Looking for a simple way to volunteer at the church? Like meeting new people? Then become an usher/greeter! This is something that requires very little commitment (just show up about 15 minutes before service starts) or training. Help is especially needed on the 1st Sunday of the month. Please contact Rob Schwartz at email@example.com if interested.
The children of Joyful Noise - the family choir - have made a mural showing the joyful animals emerging from Noah's ark to celebrate the its safe landing and the end of the flood. The mural will hang in the Undercroft all summer. Let the children and their families know what you think of their accomplishment.

The Time is NOW to End Gerrymandering
Time is running out to end partisan redistricting in Pennsylvania before the next census changes our districts again for yet another decade.
Two bills in the Pennsylvania House – HB 22 and HB 23 – will end gerrymandering once and for all, by guaranteeing free and equal elections for all Pennsylvania voters.

Tell Your Senator: Help Protect Families from Gun Violence
The PA legislature has the chance to do something that makes sense and saves lives: enact SB 90 / Extreme Risk Protection Orders. This bill creates a civil court process family members and law enforcement can use to temporarily bar access to firearms by a family member at risk of harming himself or others.
Ask your Senator to sign on, (or thank them if they already have!)
