Weekly Update - September 10th, 2020
Sunday Service: “Streams of Renewal”
led by Rev. Laurel Gray
September 13th at 10:30 am
This is our ingathering service, a day for celebrating our being together in community and the start of a new church year. It is our custom to start with a Water Communion service, blending waters from places we hold dear to create a well of holy water. In that spirit, this service will be about the streams that renew us in hard times and fill our wells with love, hope, and peace. (As our Sunday service is virtual, if you would like to share water with the congregation in person, please feel free to bring a small sample with you to the picnic on Sunday evening.)

Share the Plate Update & Nominations Request
Each month, UUCSW shares our Sunday collections equally with a non-profit organization that does work in the wider community that is aligned with our UU principles and values through our “Share the Plate” program. For September, our Share the Plate recipient organization is the Westborough COVID-19 Community Fund. Thank you for helping UUCSW to support this important local resource.

If you would like to nominate an organization as a future month's Share the Plate recipient, please submit your nomination ASAP using our Share the Plate Nomination Form. Our volunteer Share the Plate Review Board will thoughtfully consider all nominations. Thank you!
