Sunday Service: "Bridging"
May 17th at 10:30 am
led by Rev. Laurel Gray
When we planned this year’s calendar, today was set to be the bridging ceremony for our teens graduating from high school. One of the great losses during Covid is all the celebrations that have been cancelled or postponed, celebrations that are meant to mark significant transitions in people’s lives. Today we’ll do what we can to celebrate our teens.

UUCSW's Sunday Services are currently offered online using Zoom. The link will open at 10:00 am for anyone who would like to attend our pre-service "Coffee Hour." The service will begin at 10:30 am.

UU Mass Action Covid-19 Emergency Fund
Community based efforts are leading the way in caring for people in crisis in need of resources. UU Mass Action has established a Covid-19 emergency fund to provide aid to partner organizations helping people in many affected communities and is aiming to collect $50,000. Funds are distributed every week based on need. So far $12,500 has been collected, but the needs especially due to massive unemployment are ongoing and growing. Consider making a one time or recurring donation. Directions and more information here: uumassaction.org/blog-posts/2020/4/6/covid19-emergency-fund-for-uu-partners
