Christmas Day Walk
December 25, 2020
2:30 p.m.
The Holidays are so different this year. For safety’s sake, many have canceled plans for travel and large gatherings, and that means people are celebrating the holiday alone. If you live alone and will be entirely by yourself this Christmas Day, please consider joining Rev. Jaimie and Clementine for a socially distant Holiday stroll through the Tinsel Town Trail downtown. We will meet at the main entrance on Church St. at 2:30 p.m. and walk around the trees. We will wear masks and keep socially distanced. This should be a fun and safe way to break up the zoom calls and Christmas movies. Please email Rev. Jaimie at to let her know if you plan to attend!
UUSC Guest at Your Table

Please support the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC) in its mission to advance human rights worldwide. Each year, through its Guest at Your Table fundraising campaign during December, UUSC invites us to join or to renew our memberships. This year, instead of little Guest at Your Table boxes and donation envelopes, UUSC has provided visual stories about the “guests,” that your donations to UUSC will support. Thank you.

Little Food Pantry

Please see previous newsletters for food ideas to fill the pantry. If you are unable to use the sign-up schedule but would still like to fill the pantry, please try to fill it on Tuesday, Thursday, or Saturday, which are between sign-up days. It is usually empty on those days. If the pantry is full, add your food to the overflow box by the church door. Thanks for your support of this important ministry of the congregation!
Blankets & Socks Drive
FIRST STOP and Grateful Life Church are in need of blankets and socks for our homeless neighbors through January. As homeless can do laundry at First Stop, the need is for washable blankets. You can drop them in or on the overflow food pantry brown box by the door of the church. It’s cold now and folks need help.
