LUM Jubilee Christmas

lum-jubileeLUM Jubilee Christmas is fast approaching and we are now signing people up to purchase toys for children in our host families and volunteering on the day of Jubilee as hosts, gift wrappers, and kitchen helpers. We are working with the RE program so that our youngest UUs get to play a part in Jubilee. Please volunteer generously to help us make Jubilee Christmas a happy and memorable experience for all involved. If you are able to help, please contact Jada Haughey or Gracie Gould (ladyjada@hotmail.com or graciegould@mindspring.com) Thank you!

LUM Jubilee is our community’s largest Christmas assistance program. Each December, LUM member churches become Jubilee Toy Shops where low-income parents select new toys and gift certificates for their children. Families also receive food for the holiday meal and various household staples. This year, The Church of the Brethren will be our host site with support from the UU and The Society of Friends. Jubilee will be on Saturday, December 12th.

The Jubilee committee would like to thank Jean Tyner and Mary Finley for their hard work and dedication to this event for many years; we will try to make you proud in the years to come!

Chalice Circle Registration

chalice-circles2 Chalice Circles, a small group ministry focused on fellowship and spiritual growth through deep listening, began meeting in October. An important part of the Chalice Circle philosophy is an ‘open chair’ policy that allows new members to join a Circle anytime a vacancy develops in an active group.
Would you like to be included in one of the Circles? Our congregation has three active Chalice Circles. The Chalice Circles meet once a month, typically in the home of one of the members. If you would like to be added to the waitlist for a group, please click on the link associated with the day/time that works best for you:
 The second Wednesday of the month from 10:00 a.m. to noon

 The third Thursday of the month from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

The second Sunday of the month from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
