A NOVEMBER MESSAGE FROM BETH

As I write this message to you, it’s cold and rainy outside and the leaves are beginning to turn colors and fall. Autumn is here, at last! As a native Northeasterner, I’m  very  grateful for its arrival. Many people I know have a November spiritual practice of noting each day on social media what they are grateful for. I, myself, can’t keep up with a daily online practice like this, but I do take time to stop and reflect on my life’s many blessings.
THANK YOU FOR BUILDING THIS CHURCH!

We want to hear from everyone about your 2018 Pledge by November 13. Stop by the Generosity Bar in Channing Hall, pledge online at dallasuu.org/Pledge (or click below), or drop your pledge card off at the church office. If you intend to renew your pledge at the same level, you can let us know by emailing Barbara Eidt ( beidt@dallasuu.org ). THANK YOU to everyone who has already pledged your support for 2018!
DO YOU HAVE A CHILD TO DEDICATE?

Sunday, December 17, is the next opportunity for families to participate in our child dedication service . Interested parents need to register for a free class (Dec. 10) with our ministers exploring the core values parents hope to instill in their children and the spiritual meaning of dedication.
