Special Collection for November: Lutheran Social Services of NE Florida

For 35 years, Lutheran Social Services of Northeast Florida has helped hundreds of thousands of very different people through a broad range of services. Initially, it may seem that their programs are disconnected lines of support. Yet if you take a broader look, you’ll notice how the outstanding teams supporting all of these programs are simply filling in the gaps for neighbors in need and creating one big beautiful picture of improved lives in the process. Please make your check payable to UUCJ with Lutheran Services on the memo line.

Bequest Club Update

In preparation for the UUCJ  Foundation annual meeting, we updated and are checking our Bequest Club list. This list contains the names of the generous dedicated members who have included gifts to UUCJ in their estate plan.

Previous donor’s gifts are an important part of the Church’s financial well-being.

Please check the list over and let us know if any names are missing.

Also if you are interested in finding out about ways to include UUCJ or UUCJ Endowment in your estate plan just give one of the Foundation Board members a call.

Thanks, Lynn Shad

Deeper than The Skin

Barbara Robinson is unable to stay for the service this Sunday, but will be selling concert tickets outside the Chapel before the service. $15 for adults, $10 for children in advance, cash or check made out to UUCJ.

Choir Rehearsal and Potluck

Members of the choir are invited to go to the Social Hall during the last hymn this coming Sunday.  Partake of the potluck offerings, enjoy socializing, and return to the chapel by 12:45 and we can still have some useful time for a rehearsal.
