Share the Plate:       
April's Share the Plate is going to the Minister's Discretionary Fund.  We always collect for the Minister's Discretionary Fund on Christmas Eve. Now, Christmas is coming early because we anticipate that with the current stay at home orders, more people may need a little help. This account is used to confidentially help members in need. Through this benevolence fund, we're able to give help to that member who just needs one month's rent to be paid so they can make it to their next payday, or help with groceries, or a medical bill. While we are all apart, let us continue to come together to support one another.

What's Happening This Week
Enriching Connections has become an even more vital part of all that we do. We want to make it as easy for you to stay connected as possible. So we encourage you to add something to your morning routine. As you sip your coffee or tea, go to this link:  http://www.liveoakuu.org/whats-happening-this-week/
It will have the most up-to-date information about connection events. Be sure and save the link! We want to enrich connections, but we are also putting safeguards in place so that we can feel safer when we gather in this way. (But if you have a friend who might want to join, feel free to privately send them the link.)
