President Charlie Scholz
Time Talent and Treasure
One of the things that always heartens me about our Congregation is the willingness of our members to step up and enthusiastically tackle both the ordinary and the exceptional tasks we face.
Meeting with the Stewardship Committee last week, to begin planning our Annual Pledge Drive, reminded me of the depth of Time and Talent that have here at UUCLC. As we discuss the theme, the organization and the strategy for this year’s campaign, it was apparent that we had not only good ideas but also great hopes for this most important fund raising activity.
If you’re new here, you’ll soon discover the extent of our volunteer network. They’re the people who greet you on Sunday Morning. They’re the teachers who share their time with your children. They’re the Service Associates and Choir Members who add so much to our Sunday experience.
In addition, there is the often unseen network of Committee Chairs and members who service our needs in areas like Membership, Social Justice, Finance, Caring Leadership Development, Hospitality, the Gallery, Facilities and Communication.
Finally, there are the volunteers who do program planning for our ministries, like CUUPS and the Bridge Group and the Covenant Groups, just to name a few.
I’ve heard it said, ‘The strength of this church lies in the hearts of its people.’ I say Amen to that.
In faith, Charlie
