Sunday Service: "At the Start of Summer"
May 31st at 10:30 am
We’re approaching the end of our church year and nearing the start of summer vacation from school – both things that look very different than expected. As we transition out of this year, we’ll talk about how we have learned and grown together, and how we imagine coming back together in the fall.

Program Committee Leadership Transition
After years, decades even, of serving as the Program Committee Chair, Kathie Metzger is getting a well-earned respite from all the planning. Sharon Barrett, who has served on various committees and been an active part of our music program, has agreed to become the new Program Committee Chair. Please join us in expressing our gratitude to Kathie for her immense service to this congregation, and in welcoming Sharon into her new role.
Summer Services - they are happening - would you like to participate?
If you have an idea for a theme for a summer service, please consider signing up to lead a service - here's the sign-up sheet:  Summer Services 2020

We will continue with online services in Zoom through the summer. In addition to a Service Leader, there will be a Zoom Host. The Zoom Host will start the meeting and manage all the technical aspects of moving through it. If you are technically savvy and interested in learning how to be the Zoom Host, we can train you!

Please consider leading a summer service - we will work with you to make it successful. Once you sign up, someone on the Program Committee will reach out to you to find out what help you need to pull the service together. If you have questions or concerns, please send an email to program.chair@uucsw.org .
