A Celebration of Our New Church Building and a New Church Year

Dearest Members and Friends,

            As we anticipate the completion of our new Church home in the very near future, it seems to be an appropriate time to reflect on the past few years through which we’ve supported one another during tremendous political upheaval, a wide range of urgent social issues and the worst pandemic of our lives.

            Even though we were often separated by distance due to health concerns, we were strengthened by our resolve to stick together as a community in support of each other, even if that meant doing so virtually. Through it all, we began an unimaginably successful Capital Campaign, started (and have almost finished!) a building custom-designed for our needs as a liberal religious community focused on continuing our eagerness to serve the larger community and be radically welcoming.

            But the Capital Campaign wasn’t our only success! Because there were no services inside a brick and mortar building, a very skilled Tech Team was formed and, working alongside the talented worship committee, they helped to make our services available to everyone with internet access. This allowed guests to find us, get to know us, and even become members without ever having stepped inside our building. 

        During this new congregational year we will undoubtedly wish to see the programs we already love, the programs we wish to see expanded, and to dream of even more ways to grow and serve our beloved community.

            As you think about your financial support for the operations of the GMUUC, especially the programs and the costs to administer them, we ask that you review all we have accomplished to get us to where we are today- specifically, a mindset of gratitude and plenty, rather than one of scarcity.

            Thank you for the many ways you have been generous during this pivotal time in our history, and thank you in advance for your continued generosity to support our future.

 

Yours in Faith,

Rev. Charlotte and Frank Youngblood
