Guest at Your Table

The  UUSC campaign for this year has come to a close. Our “guests” are on their way to keep fighting for social justice. If you want to help them, please bring your coin boxes back or write a check to UUCJ with UUSC on the memo line. We will have extra envelopes at the back of the church. One last note about this organization: In addition to the 80 partners they support around the world, they are also exposing thousands…

Ballet Tickets Make Great Christmas Presents!

UUCJ is in possession of 2 donated sets of tickets for Romeo and Juliet. Each set contains two tickets plus a parking pass—all for $50 each. One of these tickets is now selling for $50—so this is a very good deal! The performance takes place at the Times Union Center, Friday, January 10, 8:00 p.m. This ballet comes from Ukraine, and features top Ukrainian artists. It is amazing! All proceeds from the sale go to UUCJ and would help contribute…

Stocking Stuffers — UUCJ Pens

The sale of each pen supports and advertises UUCJ. The Fund Raising Team has two types of imprinted pens for sale; both have a  stylus on the opposite end: A royal blue one that lights up our info ($3) and an attractive navy one with silver trimming ($2). Combined with stationery they make great gifts that will keep our church’s name in the limelight, literally. The pens alone are especially appropriate for future new members. If you interested in purchasing…

Campaign Winding Down for UUSC

Please remember to bring back your coin boxes in the next two weeks. Any amount of coins is appreciated. A $40 donation to the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee makes you a member of this effective group that supports marginalized people in the U.S. and around the world. A recent grant was given to our Florida Panhandle communities to document their post-hurricane devastation. Final sale of Fair Exchange chocolates will take place before the congregational meeting this Sunday.

Guest at Your Table

When you donate to the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee, you are supporting an organization that has received four stars from Charity Navigator for the last seven years. Please bring your coin boxes on December 22, 24, or 29. Checks can be placed in the offering plate anytime this month or given to Cyd Ryder at the UUSC/chocolate table in the Social Hall after the service. Many thanks for your support.

A Path to Reason for America by Phil Scanlan

Phil Scanlan, UUCJ member in Fernandina Beach, will be on the UUCJ campus on December 8 where he will have copies of his new book A Path to Reason for America for sale for $10 — and Phil will donate all proceeds from sales back to UUCJ.  This will be an opportunity to talk with Phil about his book, his reasons for writing it, and his passion for improving the lives of all Americans.  (And get him to autograph your…

Guest at Your Table Update

Our campaign is running well for 2019. The $2,015 we collected last year for global human rights may be hard to beat, but we’ll continue filling those coin boxes, buying chocolates, and writing checks for UUSC until the end of December. Many thanks for your support!

Thank You for Contributing!

Thanks for contributing $832 to the Special Collection for Bozod Unitarian Church on Sunday. A contribution of $100 was turned into the office, bringing the total to $932. Sometimes additional donations will trickle in after the collection. We are confident that we will exceed the $1,000 goal. If you would like to put us over the top or even increase the total we are sending to Bozod, feel free to contribute online or bring check to UUCJ next Sunday. Please…

Guest at Your Table

Coin boxes keep getting filled up until you bring them back during the Christmas holidays, but your donation checks will be accepted any time up until the New Year. Please remember to write checks to UUCJ, with “UUSC” on the memo line. Consider this your small way to help with the immigrant crisis on our southern border. The UUSC supports RAICES, an important group that provides legal assistance to refugee children and their families.

Special Collection for November 17: Partner Church

UUCJ has had a long time relationship with the Unitarian church of Bozud, Romania. Several of our members have visited. Last year the minister and his wife spent a wonderful week here in Jacksonville. As part of this special relationship, we conduct an annual special collection. Carlos Fraticelli, chairperson of the Partner church committee (who has been to Bozud) will further explain the value of our contribution to this congregation in Romania.
