Our Fellowship has changed and grown over the years reflecting the abundant gifts that each member brings. Together, we shape our destiny, never knowing what the future holds. We are the stewards of the health and resilience of this beloved community.  As we kick-off our Stewardship Campaign, let us renew our pledge of mutuality by reflecting on the importance of generously giving our time, talent and treasure so that our Fellowship can continue to serve the needs of the world.



It’s time to play the music!  It’s time to light the lights!  It’s time to get things started for the Pledge Drive Variety Show!  As part of the 2020 Annual Stewardship Campaign and Pledge Drive, the UUFF is hosting a Variety Show on Saturday, February 22, from 7:00 – 9:00 pm.  We’re looking for performers, musicians, singers, dancers, jugglers, magicians, comedy writers, actors, stagehands, concessions staff, clean-up artists, rehearsal snack makers, and more!  Our first rehearsal is Saturday, January 18, from Noon-4PM at the Fellowship.  Our final/dress rehearsal will be on Saturday, February 15, also from Noon-4PM.  Snacks and drinks will be provided during the rehearsals.  To volunteer and/or sign up to perform, please fill out our online form.  (Performers:  If you need musical accompaniment for your act, please get us a recording or the sheet music ASAP.)  For more information about this event, please contact Lisa Manion.


Each year, the UUFF conducts a stewardship campaign to raise funds for our expenses for the new fiscal year which begins on July 1st.  Our expenses include our building mortgage, utilities, staff salaries, program activities, and more.  The funds we raise also help us pursue our dreams and goals as a Fellowship.  Our 2020 Stewardship Campaign will kick-off with the Sunday Service on February 16th.  Other special events include a Variety Show on Saturday February 22 (see separate article for details) and our 27th Annual At Your Service Auction on Saturday, April 18.  Throughout the stewardship campaign, we will conduct a pledge drive.  This is our way of securing commitments of financial support from our members and friends.  Since pledges cover roughly 85% of our expenses, having these funding commitments in advance allows us to more effectively build our organizational budget for the year.  More information about our 2020 budget will appear in future editions of this newsletter.  In the meantime, volunteers are needed to help with the Pledge Drive.  If you’d like to volunteer, please contact the 2020 Stewardship Campaign Chairs Lisa Wright  and Shari Pastore.  Thank you in advance for all your support!
