Honor Rev. Nancy J. Anderson Fund

On Sunday, July 31, we celebrated our Minister Emerita Reverend Nancy J. Anderson’s 80th birthday by proclaiming the day “Rev. Nancy J Anderson Day.” We recognized Rev. Nancy’s outstanding commitment, caring and service to our Beloved Community.

Members and friends shared cards, notes and good wishes, and we recognized both her achievements as our minister and her help this year leading rites of passage (five memorial services and a wedding), making guest minister appearances, teaching a new member orientation class, and helping to restart our Membership Committee.

To honor Nancy, some of us have made contributions to our church’s general operating fund in her name. The current total is $2,100. Would you be willing to help grow this “Honor NJA” recognition? 

Donations may be made by check/cash/on-line.  Please make checks payable to UUCLC and indicate on the memo line, “Honor NJA”.  Cash donations in an envelope with “Honor NJA” work as well. You may drop off contributions at the Church Office during library hours:  Tuesday or Thursday from 1-3 pm.

If you prefer, you may mail your donation to the church at UUCLC, 2000 S. Solano Dr., Las Cruces, NM 88001,  or make a gift online at:   https://uuchurchlc.infellowship.com/UserLogin/Index?ReturnUrl=%2fonlinegiving%2fgivenow%2fstep1

Please indicate General Fund – and the Sub-fund will be COR with notation NJA in the memo line. 

Thanks so much for considering this request from your Board of Trustees.

Volunteers Needed

We are all in this together— we see this so often when we volunteers are needed UUCLC members make it happen.   We are all in this together- which is why the Board of Trustees decided to send the mid year budget forecast to all UUCLC members. 

Our next step, pledging and we need a couple folks to step up and lead the stewardship drive this year.  Budget development for 2023 is right around the corner and we NEED you to help us prepare!  If interested, please contact, Susan Hychka or Katie Fitzgerald.

Little Pantry

Please support our Little Free Pantry.  

We try to stock the pantry with beverages (water or juices), single-portion, easy-open (pop-top) cans of veggies, fruits or meats, and raw fruits and veggies from gardens which do not require cooking, small bags of pet foods and personal hygiene items (such as diapers, hand soap, shampoo). 

We accept donations to our little blue wagon in the lobby at Sunday services or at the church library on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1-3 PM. 

Caring Reminder

On the Home page there are two options for contacting the chairs of the Caring Committee. “I Care, I Can Help!” and “A member or friend is in need of care.” I Care, I Can Help lets the chairs of Caring know what you can do to help provide loving care to our members and friends. The second option lets them know that you, or someone you know, needs assistance.
